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 )

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

they will be made from steam pipe and come with life time warranty

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?

If your doing it for looks it's going to look crappier then standard
