Re: 2.0 turbo guys (steven12345)

I am going from a t3 60 trim .48 to a gt2871r .63, one of my friends said I should man up and get to 3071 buuuut, I'm not sure I could handle it. SalsaGTI, what do you think about the 2871 vs 3071?

Re: 2.0 turbo guys (2pt. slo)

so what would not be really laggy and still make power... wouldnt it be just good to get a ball bearing 50trim with a either a .48 or .63 hotside... how do they compare to the gt30's and such....

Re: 2.0 turbo guys (steven12345)

my t3/t40b "S" trim with a .63 stage 2 exhaust housing...10psi 200whp 200wtq
at 24psi 320whp 329wtq..and that was smoking and in need of a rebuild.....

a gt2871 or 3071 will preform better than an old t3/t4 combo due to better wheel and housing designs..plain and simple and the bb centers last longer and take more abuse from surging....also water cooled centers last longer....

Re: 2.0 turbo guys (Salsa GTI)

yea see thats what i mean with my car running rich and such with my rotomaster t3/t4 50trim i hit 289 and what ever psi it was at.... so how much better would gt28 or gt30 be.. would it still make as much power.. or just spool faster and still be able get up there in HP...

t3/t4 57trim .63ar for me. its a little big, but it puts the power where I like it to be so im happy and still get 30 mpg's out of boost...
such a inefficient turbo... a 50trim is a much better option http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

a 50trim trumps a gt28 by a long shot...a gt3076 would be a good upgrade to the 50trim...a gt3071 would sorta be an equal with a better spool.

I dont like blowing off the tires at 3000 rpms and i enjoy where my power hits. i bought it for my own reasons. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif . I do agree though that the 50 trim is the "norm" to go with and is more efficient for our motors and spools much lower. OP if you go BB either that Q mentioned above are 2 great suggestions..

well either way any turbo should spool at about 3000 rpms right? or atleast on these small motors... so its either i go 50trim stage 3 wheel or go all out and do the gt 3076. with the smallest hotside they have to keep my spool the same

pfft no... .63 or bust.
