Hey there guys, just wondering if anyone knows where I would get a twin high mount for my rb26?

Cheers :)

Stock turbo's mate, but am upgrading to n1's so i suppose I would get it made for them and do it all when I have it, also need it made for 2 external waste gates.

either them or the GT2860R -5's, still indecisive, just looking for a ballpark figure of what I'm up for.

i'd like to know why you want to make a perfectly good setup more complicated?

Hence why I said in my post, I have stock turbo's at the moment but am upgrading. I kinda wrote it before I realised the real question I was being asked which was obviously " what turbo's do you want the manifold made for " So i corrected myself saying I wanted to upgrade to either n1 turbos ( from the r34 ) or the GT2860R -5's.

I want the high mount purely for looks really, and a little bit of accessibility as well. I'm extremely new to this as some of you have already discovered, this car I have brought ( s13 silvia with an rb26 ) is the first turbo car I have owned. I'm doing things the way I am because I only want to do it once, not looking for massive power figures, only about 350 - 400rwhp as I don't intend on opening the engine and forging internals.

Some thing like this is what I had in mind when I asked my original question about the cost and whereabouts of a twin high mount.

But also with external gates ( as I got told that's the way to go )

honestly, i wouldn't bother high mounting or running external gates. the R34 turbos will get you 400rwhp (or close enough) with the right supporting mods.

What do external gates actually do for it? And like I said, I only wanted to high mount for looks, not performance

all it will be for is noise. no advantage on those turbos.

TBH you will prob be laughed at for high mounting little baby turbos. not to mention the cost of manifold, gates, intake pipes, dump pipes, intercooler pipes, oil and water lines. for no advantage. they don't look anything flash. shit for the money you are spending just for the above you could prob get a new T517Z twin kit

but it seems you are keen on making it happen. hit up 6boost

Well you Probbly will get flamed for it but I believe in doing what you want so here is a rough price range. Won't get much change out of 3.5k

Custom Manifolds $1400 (Powertune, Brae, Kelway, 6boost are a few who can do it)
Wastegates $300 each x2 (Turbosmart, Tial)
Custom Dump Pipes, Wastegate pipes, Cold Side Intercooler Piping, Intake Piping $750 to $1000
All the little extras like Water lines, Oil Lines, Gaskets, Oil Returns $500

Thats all i can think of atm...

That's not even calculating labor for someone to install it all if you can't do it. So look at all that and then think of the gain... A nice looking setup that will make slightly more hp then the original low mount setup. Then ask yourself is it worth it?

High mounting only looks good when they are big turbos
If your doing it for looks it's going to look crappier then standard

I see your point now, I think ill can that idea, save that money and put it towards better, more beneficial stuff.
Thanks for your help lads, like I said, I'm new to all this so before all those comments I had no idea, now I realised the idea I have is retarded hahahaha
