I can get the turbo for 1000 bucks, thats really not that expensive. I love the idea of vf-39 spool up with much more power potential, so thats why Im considering it.

Again the HTA68 will that, spend the rest of the money on a EWG setup

I think its a great turbo. I actually had ordered one from DS1, but it got delayed in shipping from Japan for over 2 months, so I had to cancel the order...

But just like you said, I think its a great turbo for stock like spool with much better top end.

Are there any other turbos that will give me stock-like spool up but 20gish power? Besides the HTA68. And does anyone know exactly when the HTA68 reaches full boost? All it says on the FP site is "rapid spoolup"

Search the Power bragging section for the HTA68

How about this?



spools like the stock turbo with crazy top end you should be able to get 400whp on pump gas on most dynojets, and 450-430whp on race on mustang dynos.
