No avcs, right?

It spools great...only thing i wish is that it was a little more linear...but for the power it's making, it's very impressive on the spool side of things. Can't believe that this thing is capable of easily 50 WHP more. Turbo was actually designed to run 26-27 psi. The engine increased off-boost response significantly, and the turbo is making a bar of boost by 3500...so the car feels plenty quick down low.
No, no AVCS, which i'm regretting just a little bit with this build. I think the power would have come on a lot smoother and a bit sooner with it.

Have you seen this turbo on a 2.0L? I wonder how much different it will spool...I'm getting my stock manifold ported with a new crosspipe and EWG.
Havn't seen this turbo on anything.
Mine is the first Suby to have one.
I would personally think this turbo really needs E85 to perform the way it was designed. As stated above, it was originally developed for use in higher boost applications.
