No this is not my thread nor my build log, nor am I using the turbo options proposed in this thread lol. I hijacked it but will correct tomorrow.
You're using custom turbos, but I get it. Probably best you leave the off topic thread derailing bs to the professionals... lol.No this is not my thread nor my build log, nor am I using the turbo options proposed in this thread lol. I hijacked it but will correct tomorrow.
Excellent. thank god they don't have to tear it down again.Dealership fixed in 10 seconds today. He didn't put the vacuum line on the actuator. Good to go now. Tuning in progress. Holy **** this is fast on the 2nd revision. Only 18lbs already faster noticeably.
From my testing I believe you are incorrect. Please provide data to correct me, there is always a good chance I am wrong.
But personally I believe the +35 HPFP is pointless. Go big or go home you know what I mean?

What?? @ 7:38 he talks about increased efficiency on both sides of the turbo and why that would not increase lag, even with the higher flow.I just came across this vid that talks about turbos. There's a segment at 5:35 talks specifically about what we were talking about re: increasing the inducer diameter. He makes no mention of increased lag, which I was surprised to hear. The only consideration he mentions is durability.
My bad, been super busy. Yeah this thread definitely got derailed lol. Once I get her back and get logs we'll get back on track. Kinda sucks were in a waiting period here, but I definitely haven't abandoned the post or anything, just have nothing new to offer as of yet.
I took his statement about increasing trim as a broad general statement about increasing trim, not specific to just the turbo he was talking about. If he was making that statement with a silent disclaimer of "in this case" then that would make sense, too. That said, I'd hope these upgraded wheels also have a little more efficiency for the price.What?? @ 7:38 he talks about increased efficiency on both sides of the turbo and why that would not increase lag, even with the higher flow.
That makes sense to possibly not have more lag with a clean sheet design. These upgraded turbos do that?
I'll still wait for at least the anecdotal review from those who have done it and better yet, before and after datalogs.
(which also don't tell you everything if you are not driving it).
