Now... If I put it in the back seat of the GTI, and spin my engine up to about 6,000 rpms, I might be able to get it to spin.

Re: Now this. This is a turbo! (vwsteve)

I was thinkin' of getting one of those...
Then I was gonna' hook a trailer to my car, and tow it...
The FMIC will be larger than my front end, and take up 1/2 of my windshield...
And to top it off, the Intercooler piping will run approx. 30 feet in, and 30 out, so that the piping will reach from my FMIC, to the Turbo.
I'm expecting somewhere around 3000 Wheel hp, and about 0.5 lbs. of torque.

Re: Now this. This is a turbo! (rossi46)


I thought the turbo on my brother-in-law's Volvo 660 was big! I even hung my key on it for a size reference. His turbo only puts out 30psi - but it's enough to produce 1,600lb-ft @ 900 rpm.
