I recently just changed over to Comp because my T3t4 wasnt cutting it at all.

I have to say That TRIPLEX CERAMIC Ball Bearing CT2-CT3 Turbos are just absolutely fantastic. Extremely High 500+ Horsepower Rating with full boost times of smaller ball bearing turbos with 350 hp rating. 55trim with .48 AR

Im running 15psi and even with the clutch issues im having, the car makes boost at 2500-2600 and is at peak boost well before I hit 4000rpm. At Idle you can here this thing spooling it sounds like a diesel truck sitting next to you.

They Run about 1200-1300 depending on who your getting them from (for HP ratings like 500+ garretts ball bearings are near $2000). Some of the best things about them is you have options as how to cool it. Instead of Garretts if you have ball bearing you need liquid cooling, you can run oil only with the comp turbos with no problems.

Once I finish getting completely tuned and get a new clutch I will do a Dyno run. But here is the link to their ct3 line which is the turbo im using.

http://www.compturbo.com/products/ct3

Why buy a small turbo for the setup you have now when you can have the best of both worlds when your ready to making 350+

The Center Housing is 100% Billet Aluminum Machined with NPT Tapped Holes for Your feed and Return fittings. No stupid 2 piece designs like most garretts with flanges to mount to their turbos. The Turbine wheel is 100% Billet so you know its strong as heck and their housing are all 100% Polished to a mirror at no charge.

The Feed line to the turbo is already restricted at the Housing so NO NEED FOR RESTRICTORS! Makes your life so much easier.

For a turbo with fast spools and High Ratings with quite possibly the most bullet proof design I have seen. Ceramic Ball Bearings are used in the Aerospace Industry where I work at Pratt and Whitney. If we use them for Turbine Engines why wouldn't you use them for your Turbo car?

CT3 5558 .48 exhaust for a quicker spool. Dynamic Seal Oil Only. It is exactly what the t3t4 was just worlds better.

That's what I am going to get.. .48 with the 2.5" v band. I don't want to rev my car to 7500 rpm. Quick spool , and carry the boost to 6-6500. I want a torque monster. Flat curve like that Dura Tec , Bellicose has. That's where the fun is on the street.

I thought the same thing when I proof read it lol.

I have no complaints so far they have come a long way in the past couple years. I know I wasnt a fan of comps with my rx7 drag car.

Btw The BW sounds sick heard good things from them to. Gotta get another Tampa Meet together before I finish my move to Maryland.

You just contradicted yourself. A flat torque curve has more hp than tq and you said you want a torque monster. That would mean High peak low end torque that falls off quickly.

I wouldn't say it's a contradiction...flat torque stills puts you back in your seat for the entire rev range. Having a torque peak of 4k will feel more like a "monster," though.
