ok i have the revo sps3 and am thinking about upgrading my turbo. now people say that adding a bigger turbo cant be done but alll revo is doing is measuring the air going to the engine and compensating for fuel. i know that u can run 22psi on a stock k03 and adding a bigger turbo of course wont let you push that much but safetly some good 12-maybe 15 psi for sure.
can someone explain me why ppl say it cannot be done?

bro, for someone who has 3,664+ post, this is a pretty un-informed question. to answer your question, yes it can be done. thats why you see the billions of threads about big turbo software. revo offers software for most big turbos.

Re: (03gti1.8t)

its not so much boost as it is flow which is going to determine when your stock injectors will be inadequate at supplying the proper amount of fuel for the air your forcing in....revo bt sw matches a proper size maf housing w/ injectors that can work w/ a specific range of turbos/power outputs
thats as broad and simple as i can get lol

Re: (DubTron41)

well that can be determined to on how much boost u can run having a dyno and air/fuel right? thats what am trying to say, u can run a bigger turbo but of course not at the same boost level and if you change the maf housing to a vr6 would help as well.

but thats what im saying it depends on the size of the turbo and its flow. u are going to change your maf if u run bigger injectors, do not run a bigger maf on stock injectors even w/ a stock turbo u will lean out...revo has bt files although far from perfect, it is much better then using ko3 sw
and to answer your other thread yes its a $200 upgrade and they have 380cc, 440cc and 580cc injector programs
