Pardon the ignorance. I've been out of the rotary loop for a while. Always wanted a 3rd generation twin turbo but, until now, they have always been too expensive. So now I'm finding a lot of them have been converted to Greedy single turbo's,,,with all the bells & wistels.

Why are so many converting the 3rd generation twin turbo's to aftermarket single turbo's? Is it purely for the power? Or is there a maintainence problem that is rearing it's head on ten+ yr old cars?

Looking online at some of the far out engine mods that are being done on these engines, makes me wonder if it would not be more reasonable to drop in a new renesis (sp) engine and a hot chip?

We're talking street rods here, not race cars. There seem to be quite a few of these high output cars on the market from time to time. Are the emissions requirements getting to the place that these cars will no longer able to be registered. (Calif residents don't count. Those poor bastards can't get by with anything) Sad
