Default How bad is it to run an APS DR525 on a stock TD04?

Just like my title states, I will be getting an APS front mount DR525, how bad will it be to run it with the stock turbo? I do plan on upgrading to something in the neighborhood of a 20G later this year but the money isn't there right now. If I mount up the front mount and get a tune by mail, will I have any seriously adverse effects?

I beg the differ. APS Engineers specify that the wheel be NO SMALLER than 40lb/min. This is due to the amount of air in volume the IC will consume before actually charging your system. The TD04 is significantly smaller than 40lb/min and the IC will eat your boost ALIVE!

Read the specs on the website and check it out for yourself.

Professionally engineered performance for 350 - 525 horsepower applications utilizing 40 - 55 lb/min turbochargers.
You will not get optimum performance out of your system with a TD04 + APS DR525 FMIC. If you're wanting to buy the FMIC and need to save for the Turbo, put the FMIC in your room until you get it all and install it all at once. Thats what I did....... and its GREAT!

There are no detrimental effects except for spool. Been there, done that. He said he was upgrading in the future.

I don't care about optimum performance, I care about safety for my car. I am saving for a turbo and the intercooler is kind of a bonus that came along.

No serious effects, maybe a few hundred RPMs slower spool.
