They had a good run with this little turbo. FP, Slap some more parts togther.. Nasioc needs a new "turbo of the week"
I have seen this time and time again With turbo shops in the last 8 years I have been here. THey come out with some new super turbo. Kick back to some dyno shop to make amazing plots. They sell a thousand of them and people realize, it actualy sucks.
Skip the 18G altogher. I never liked the 18G on these motors. 16G or 20G is what I recomend.

I'm not having a go at your choice for using a HTA68, just the incorrect information that ppl constantly spread about the HTA68.
TBH the HTA68 is a great turbo for what it is - a 16g that provides fast boost response with a little more whp then stock sti turbo - but at the end of the day, it is only a 16g with a ~10% higher flowing comp wheel.
PPL should stop quoting and spreading the BS power figures, as it is distracting and wrong and leads to other NASIOC members buying a turbo that does not meet their needs.
Time and time agin ppl have shown the HTA68 doesn't make the numbers on pump fuel. Most get around 300whp on pump - and that is on a dyno, and every man + dog knows dyno are for tuning, not for accurately comparing whp/tq figures.
As I mentioned above, at the end of the day, it is only a 16g with a ~10% higher flowing comp wheel - so regardless of turbine flow, you're still limited by the low flowing compressor wheel.
