I just wanted to rant for a minute because everytime I check on the recent posts in this thread it is the same thing over and over...

...so I just wanted to say that while everyone is correct that this thread is outdated on the specifics of the available turbos currently on the market, it is still an OUTSTANDING starting point for people looking to determine what size turbo is best for their desired power and spool. Once they determine a ballpark size turbo, they can start looking at the available turbos on the market and see what ones meet those desires they used this page to determine. I am a big fan of people doing most the leg work in their research; otherwise they don't learn anything. When my customers come to me looking for advice on turbos, I usually will point them in the direction needed based on their personal desires and needs, but I will let them do most the research and decisions from there. They learn more and appreciate more during the build process this way.

Also, any one of the people stating the thread needs to be updated could easily take this thread, quote it, and then start a new thread with this info plus the updates needed. Obviously, doing a thread like this takes a good bit of time and effort to collect and format all the information, and instead of people taking the time to complain about how much it could use an update, they should take that time to start compiling an updated thread for the community.



...okay, end rant...just needed to get that off my chest...
