it just seems that the t3 is outdated now and that there are smaller turbo available in cheaper kits that produce just as much or more power then the t3 and spool faster. but i am not an expert and don't really know alot about forced induction at this point. so any information that you can give me let me know. but i really like the progressive kit at this point.

The T3 is an older turbo mich like everything else out there , There has been a lot of changes to the T3 other than its T3 name and outward looks , The turbo i use in the full kit is Custom and not an off the shelf turbo

I dont think you will find a NON Ballbearing turbo that will spool like mine do and still make 320+HP on a stock engine

I can add BB to my turbos as well and have seen as much as 400 RPM sooner spool not that its realy needed , It just makes the wheels spin sooner
