With the Turbo Tech that they got know they are good turbos. But all the Subaru turbos in about 6 weeks are going to become relics of the past including mine and everybody else on this board. The New Borgs are going to spool and hit faster and harder than anything else on the market by about 500 to 700 rps faster on a single scroll desighn and up to a 1000 rpms faster on a twinscroll desighn and cost about the same as Garrett offerings at this time.
Most tuners and shops have a disservice to the Subaru community by not doing R&D on the current Borg turbos. Basically you got to have a cusotm Borg setup or get the Twinscroll full race setup. Even the current line of Borgs are superior to the Garretts in almost every way. They spool the same or faster hit harder and provide more horsepower and better throttle respond intween boost for about $500 less than thier Garrett counterparts. Shops and tuners are mostly Garrett fanboys, who stick to the same old reciepe. I love Goodspeed but they even question my turbo selection, you dont have to be a Genuis to figure out the Borgs are better. My Borg S259 is supposley comparible to a GT30R but if you look at the numbers its rated at 60lb turbo compared to the 52lb garrett GT30R and guess what is spools the same with better response and much more power, and the best part its 500 dollars less and totally rebuildable.
