How does the power come on? How much boost and when do you see full boost? And what your mods?

Power comes on a lot smoother and pulls to redline. Tuned to 18psi and full boost by 4k. Catless uppipe, Cobb dp, stromung 2.5" mid pipe, and yes, stock axleback! The power delivery is so much more linear without the huge torque bump at 4k then falls flat on its face td04.

m no expert by any means, but the vf48 is a later spooling turbo. I had my tuner install a vf48. DW650s. DW65 pump. Grimspeed boost controller. Catless up and downpipe and full exhaust. Made 290 hp and 286 tourqe. I'm pretty dam happy with it to say the least. Tuned at 20 psi

Interested in this as well. I'm looking to put in a VF48, DW750, WFP 255, Borla headers, and a turboXS TMIC

And the only difference is it has a stiffer waste gate than 39 and different bearing design than 43. The 43 and 48 are essentially the same, but I have heard of ppl saying their 39 cracked.
