The flange size and bend shouldn't matter much, if at all, since the actually compressor inlet is ~2.4" (IIRC). Which is still much smaller than the roughly 5% you'd loose through the 3" 90 bend.

You mean the actual diameter at the cold side blades? Yeah, for sure less than 3", you can see in the picture of mine that is attached... don't have measured numbers though... and I'm not taking that thing out to measure...

This is with stock pistons and ca91 gas only. Pick up July 2012 import tuner for the write up, it's in the back.
how do you get 21 psi before 4k (on that turbo) on 91 cali?
do you have a TMIC?
just curious, not doubting.

But in states like CA, stock location is the way to go... the polished housing may not be the best idea, but it's pretty...
Did the hose come with it or did pay extra for it?

I have a Perrin FMIC. In the lower gears, 1st especially, it won't happen. But if you are cruising in a higher gear, the load will be there and it gets to target boost decently quickly. On the dyno, it gets there around 4200 or so. I think it has to do with having headers and an uppipe with the right tune. But even then, when you compare it to how the VF48 felt... it's a bit of time to wait.

The new angle hose is included for those who want to run the FMIC. We used it when we dyno'd it before the FMIC for fun. The FMIC with retune was worth 35hp and 31tq. The gains are seen as soon as the boost is up.

Not trying to bring up old stuff. But just bought the GTX3576 externally gated stock location turbo for my 04 STI. Was looking at the AMR pro series up pipe (2.5"), and began to wonder what the size was for the inlet? I have dug around and found nothing. Any takers on this?

the blouch dom 3.5 is another option too look at, think its turbine wheel is a fraction smaller than a 3576 but its bigger than a 3076
