You got all that HP from a 48 trim? That's pretty good

It's simpler than it seems, if you decide to go in-tank, I gave a few pics and pointers and instructions to Sean, he can return the favor helping you out, if doubts lmk.

Yep and its capable of more. the turbo is good to 32psi im currently at 25psi. And my power is very usable. I hit full boost by 3k and starts to fall off right about when i shift at 6500. It was a mind blowing appifany realizing to tune my turbo to my car and not my car to my turbo, made a big difference. I picked up a lot more power lowering the trim size to coincide with the stock power band of the motor. before my max power was after i shifted at like 7200 now its at about 6300 and falls about 5whp by the time i hit 6500 and shift. And this is all with a journal bearing turbo. I could only imagine what it would be like with a ball bearing turbo.

i hated my .63ar 50 trim. it was way to laggy



i would like to see the s256 or s258 used b/c every one else is scared of it or getting away from garrett. i believe precision is a good cheap alternative to. even though the s256 is "only" 1200 bucks.

for the fuel system i had no luck with the stock tank just like tom said. its a pain to use with less than 1/2 tank and impossible with 1/4. once i put a fuel cell in the car ran perfectly from full to slap empty. i am seriously considering building a cell for the focus that can be placed under the car. but i wont be doing that till i have the kits finished.

for the bov the one you have will not prevent you from making power but if you want a big fancy one get you the new tial 50mm

the wg will need to be a 44 vband for my kit besides that it doesnt matter to me what brand. either a precision 46 or a tial 44. the precision is less expensive though.

you could always get you a smaller turbo and spray it up to 600whp lol

yeah mines is a comp. and i did have to rebuild it once shortly after i got it. but they took care of it under warranty. and havent had an issue since. I hope it stays that way. maybe one day ill look into a ball bearing turbo about the same size. i have another turbo for my drift car that is by comp when i was sponsored by them and its the same thing except with a billet compressor wheel. Im curious to see what it will do. On a 2.4l is suppose to hit full boost by 2200rpm and last until about 6k which on a drift car will give lots of tq and cut off early so i dont have to rev the nuts off of it and i will get longevity and reliability out of it. it will be interesting to see what it does.

hey dan. any chance you could shoot me a link to your turbo or give me a part number or something? im having trouble tracking it down. my search-fu is not very strong im afraid...

and i dont have a problem with the borg/bullseye. ill run it if it looks like its going to work best for me but if that comp turbo dan is running can get me into similar territory i think it will be the clear winner because that thing spools pretty darn quick. and i DO have a nitrous kit still. that could be an option. how much do you think i would pick up spraying nitrous ONTO the intercooler to supercool it? not directly into the intake.

spray in the intake or its really just a waste. esp if you already running race gas to make 600.

and i wouldnt call me a master lol. there are plenty much better at making art work than me. my goal is strength and function not looks and colorful stainless

What turbo were you running tim? When I was running off straight wg pressure it had a bit of lag . But when I dialed in the ebc the thing woke the hell right up. I've loved the precision turbos I've had. They have garrett internals but are little cheaper. I don't see the point in jumping on the garrett band wagon. That's when I applaud ppl like kokes focus when he built his with a holset
