Default Turbos with 3" inlets and TGV deletes

Heres my story, if you dont feel like reading, see CN below:

Back in April I ordered an FPGreen turbo for my 05 sti. Specs are standard inlet, 7cm hotside and 34mm WG flapper. Fast forward to today, I still dont have it. Apparently, FP is backlogged and about a month ago, the CNC operator broke his hand.

The vendor i purchased this from has been relentless on getting FP to complete the order and ship my turbo since its been like eleventy-billion days, but they say they are way behind. Anyways, the vendor contacted me today and said he has a Green in stock he can ship right away. Specs are 3" inlet and 8cm hotside. Much more appealing other than this: Will the 3" turbo clear the tgvs or will i need the deletes? The deletes are a big PITA and expensive. I will be using a 3" turbo inlet and a big TMIC, if any of that info matters.

CN: Will a 3" inlet FPGreen clear the tumbler valves??

Negative. Even if you get it to work, you'll eventually break them, from what I have read.

Go with the grimmspeed TGV w/core charge. Done. and Done.

The deletes are not expensive. I picked up a used set for 125 bucks and for right now plan on modifying them myself. There is at least one vendor I can think of on here off hand that will modify them for you for under 100 bucks. If you think the install is a pita just take your time and label all your hoses and probably pick up a service manual. Great time to add an APS inlet and some phenolic spacers as well if wanted.

Why don't you just get an Element GT49 or Deadbolt SZ49? There's a ton of 50 trim bolt-ons that will perform what you're looking for. there's no reason to wait that long for this turbo.

people. you don't need TGV deletes. with 3inch inlet turbo. I have a FP red and still have my tgv's. Basically what you do is take the sensor off. what happens? well the tgvs are in open position all the time. well actually in super cold climates like below 0' C they would be closed at start up, and then they open, but anyway. In US they are basically open. So you take the sensor off one side (the turbo side) and leave the motor like it was on the oposite side. this insures that the TGV will remain open during boost. for insurance i made a little plate for the sensor side to make sure it will be in open position all the time. then the tuner will disable that one tgv, however the one on the driver side will still be active. there save your self some time and money. I did this when i took my car to scott siegal, at first he didn't like the idea but we got together with few mechanics and this works. the car has about 6000miles on the set up and the car still runs as it was on the day of tuning.

sorry for the long post...just trying to help out.

you dont need the TGV deletes to run a 3 inch inlet... i would personally jump on that turbo... 3 inch inlets make more power and so do the 8cm housings... i would get it in a heartbeat... it will work way better than your other FP green setup

try and do the TGV deletes though, my car got around 5-8 more hp from them on just the vf39
