Looks good! If you dont mind me asking, what did that end up costing you? What are your hp goals, and what type of spool are you expecting out it?

Prices are on their site and that's what I paid lol

Free shipping still!

Well the 60-1 is basically a old FP red and I assume I could make similar power for half the cost.

I port, build and rebuild turbos for a living and can tell you that these parts are legit

With shipping, thats a hard deal to pass up on. $805 out the door for a older style FP red or Green. Now I have to decide what I want to go with!

Did you order your TD06H 60-1 or the TD6SL2 60-1

I just got parts not the whole turbo. But I wouldn't pair the td06sl2 with the 60-1 wheel. I would do the td06H at the minimum.

Let me just put this out there. These 3in compressor covers are a tight fit!

But aren't they all

They're all tight, but how tight varies quite a bit. The shape of the exhaust housing determines where the turbo centerline ends up, and if it's further from the TGVs, then you get a bit more room to work - or maybe "less tight" would be more accurate.

Blouch and FP were ridiculously tight, but I've heard they've gotten better. My ATP wasn't bad at all, just a small dimple in the turbo inlet connector where the TGV housing pushes into it a little bit. I've been wondering just how much room there is with Kinugawa's turbos, so if anyone can take some pictures that'd be great.

I will take photos when I install mine, mind you my engine will be assembled on a stand and I had a custom inlet designed out of hard aluminum with no nipples on it due to blow thru maf setup. Going to be using a 3" coupler from aps.

The hex screws could be made of a harder metal as I almost stripped one of them, but a $2 trip to Home Depot or Lowes will fix that. Also, I did not mention that inside the turbo the hole to the wastegate port is nice and contoured. I had to do the same contouring with my wife's VF39 as it had the infamous creep issue.
Gabe, what is the final review of the Kinugawa adjustable actuator: good or not good? I am looking into getting one.

Vlad, I'm selling mine off my turbo brand new because I'm external dump. I know it fits 3" compressor housing with the bracket provided. Let me know if you are interested.

For what it is worth I have tuned a few and never had any issues. The waste-gate and interchangeable springs is a HUGE plus though over the others.

If I was into bolt on turbos or was building a small turbo car for myself I wouldn't think twice about using them.

Your post here alone pretty much boosted kinugawa's sales. Lol
Been telling others these turbo are fine

My turbo is starting to go but I cant even begin to tell you what I put this thing thru. I have the 2.4 inch 8cm td06h 60-1. Turned the boost down to spring pressure in first gear to save my trans. 2nd and up I run about 18psi with a clutch thats been slipping ever since I decided to show off my sleeper. When the car runs for 30 secs the turbo stops making noise.

DO NOT RUN THIS TURBO ON AN INTERNAL GATE!!!! I run speed density with overboost set 3psi above my target and if all the conditions are right it will tag it religiously. This usually occurs if I shift too early before redline and get on the next gear or if the exhaust manifold is really hot from doing multiple runs.

I have another built motor ready to replace this one so I tend to keep my right foot buried. Anti lag accelerated my current problems but who cares since it has a warranty.

I would also like to thank cardibbles (spellcheck) for his work on advancing speed density

Honestly could careless what others think, it's my money and I'll spend it how I want. Unbelievable how a small group on a board are so bias and closed minded about certain brands. I can name some big companies that started cheap on eBay. I'm just patiently waiting for my crank to get back from being polished. Can't wait to put this thing back together.

Been preaching about these turbos for over a year now! Nobody understands how big this company really is and how popular they are everywhere else BUT the US.

Anymore results with the TD06H 60-1 8cm? So it's basically a FP Red?

what is the average life span on kinugawas? i see junior is saying they're good and a lot of guys buying them but then i see a post saying it lasted a year and starts to **** the bed. people use blouch turbos for years and have no issues. the bottom line is in the end of the day you get what you pay for. blouch is proven kinugawa is trying to make a name for it's self but so far it's been a spotty performance record. i'd rather pay big bucks one time and have peace of mind that my turbo isn't going to died after a year unless something out of the ordinary happens rather then 800ish every 1-3 years. the kinugawa 25g is very apealing but where is the proven power? i'm not down playing kinugawa, i'm looking to be sold on them.

Who said it lasted a year?

I'm using one now and it's Awesome. I rebuild and build turbos and theses guys did it right and used the right thrust plate. If I saw anything I didn't like I would change that part,complain on nasioc about how ****ty they are and continue about my day.

So far things are good and I'm very happy. Saved myself $1200. If I need new bearings or a rebuild I could do it for $50 lol. If anyone needs new wheels or upgrades kinugawa sells individual parts too.

Win win. If you want to spend money for a logo by all means : )
