I implied that this is THE turbo based on the facts that: It's safe on a stock 2.0L. It spools rather quickly for our smaller motors. And it FEELS smooth.
I apologize but sometimes I forget that the only thing people care about here is that XXXWHP number.
Forget drivability and reliability!!
See, that's just it- that turbo spools only as fast as my 20g and makes less power. So the turbo has zero advantage in spool/low end torque and is at a disadvantage when it comes to overall power. Its a lose lose situation when compared to other turbos.
As for drivability/reliability, it all comes down to the tune and owner precaution/maintenance.
