IMO there is no reason to run this turbo on a 2.5L.....10cm2.5xtr is what should be put on a 2.5L

The 1.5xtr is basically a 20gxtr with a slightly bigger compressor wheel that does abosultely no good cause the turbine is choking it.
listen to this guy as he knows what he is taking about. I was under the impression that running an ewg would alleviate the choking situation, however that is not necessary the case. it is my understanding that it is not the size of the exhaust housing that is choking it, but rather the size of the turbine wheel itself. either way I got a really good deal on this turbo and that's why I choose it. if money was not an issue I would still choose rotated 3076 over any stock location turbo.
