I have seen them, and I am willing to try them when the stocker goes.
But I like this tread.
I would love to know who on here has tried it.
There are actually several types.

^^True, but i am not looking to push it as far as 380hp anyway. I will be satisfied with where 19psi puts me, they said it could give me 320whp at 19 psi on 90oct gas.

u can push a v39 to 320whp tho if ur going to get that atleast go for 350+whp

my tuner put his v39 up to 21psi and hit 320whp with the same mods as me

This one would be worth trying out - a TD06SL2-20G with 8cm nozzle area that could be snapped up for under 1K

Last time I checked, ppl with TD06-20G's were making 320-350whp

Would definately be interesting to see how they go.

I get your point, but this turbo is going to last longer, as it is built to support more power

say no to cheap ebay parts...

cheap
fast
reliable

your only getting two.

Why take the chance on something unproven? Just go to a reputable company like FP, Blouch, Deadbolt, etc...

True but the power curve is much diffrent

320 on the VF39 could taper down to 220 by redline, where as the 20g would probably be around 280-300, so there is a big diffrence.

It isn't exactly an "ebay" turbo. It is manufactured by Exotic Speed in Canada and just happen to be sold by some ebay stores.

If I was going to buy one though, I'd steer clear of the ebay stores and buy direct from Exotic Speed just so I know there is someone real to contact if anything goes wrong.

Also, if you buy from Exotic Speed, then you at least know they have a 2-year manufacture warranty
