Fswerks Turbo Kit

I've looked around for answers but could find none, so I'll just ask you guys. You seem like a knowledgeable lot.

I'm planning on purchasing an turbo kit from Fswerks and had some questions:

First, what is the difference between the Garrett GT28R, GT28RS, & GT2871R turbos. I checked their site and couldn't find either of these three turbos to compare.

Second, how does a turboed setup perform with the stock intake manifold, I do plan to get a Cosworth manifold later but was wondering how it would perform until I get to that point. ( Also, I know that manifold requires to tune to work properly. How will the car perform without one, and where can I get one [I heard that Fswerks makes custom tunes but I haven't seen it advertised anywhere])

Third, during the installation of turbos I hear you have to drill through the sump to run oil lines. I was wondering how easy this is or if the duratec comes with holes in it from the manufacture that you can use. (I know some engines have them).

Thanks for any help, and if any of these questions will be answered by the literature that comes with the kit feel free to refrain from answering those.

The different turbos support different maximum HP goals, in increasing order. 28R is around 310hp max, 28RS is around 350HP, and the 2871 is around 400HP. Of couse, all things held consistent, they all will have different sweet spots that they operate at.

If you want the details:

GT2871R:
Turbine
-Wheel: 53.85mm w/ 76 trim
-Housing: .86 or .64 ar

Compressor
-Wheel: 71mm w/ 56 trim
-Housing: .60 ar

GT28RS:
Turbine
-Wheel: 53.85mm w/ 76 trim
-Housing: .64 or .86 ar

Compressor
-Wheel: 60mm w/ 62 trim
-Housing: .60 ar

GT28R:
Turbine
-Wheel: 53mm w/ 62 trim
-Housing: .64 ar

Compressor
-Wheel: 60mm w/ 60 trim
-Housing: .60 ar

Regarding oiling, there is no easy tap point for a return. You can get a feed by 'T'ing from the oil pressure sensor, but the return will have to be drilled and tapped.

I am pretty sure with the FSWERKs kit, they supply an oil pan plug that already has a tap on it...no drilling required...just an oil change.

The FSWERKs kit, if bought new, comes with tuning and a tuner. You will need a wideband to do it correctly ($189.)

You should be able to make nearly 240whp with the stock manifold, maybe more. There are dynosheets on the FSWERKS website. If you go from a stock manifold to a cosworth, without a tune, you will throw a code. Its not really an issue, but it is a code. If you have a wideband installed, you can see if the new manifold effects your AFR. To be safe, you would need a retune. I dont know if FSWERKS provides tune updates for modifications after the install and tuning of their kit. That is something you will need to discuss with Randy.

Why cant people answer questions without being smartasses?


A wideband is a guage/wiring that will replace one of your O2 sensors. The guage will give you an accurate Air/Fuel Ratio for your engine....damn near a necessity for tuning properly. You will be able to buy a firewire, splice it, and datalog with your Laptop and handheld tuner.
