Default Pros and Cons on going rotated

I'm building an EJ257 right now. Stock Crank and rods with 100mm CP pistons with V3 heads with stock cams. PE850 injectors and a VF43 turbo. A friend has a GT3076R that he'll give me really cheap. I've seen a non rotated kits but a lot more rotated ones. What are the advantages of going rotated? And are there any disadvantages... besides having to buy all the rotated piping? Can't find much with the search button.

Thanks,
Nick

Go rotated and never look back. Its much easier to work on and opens up alot of options down the road.

agreed.you will eventually go to a rotated setup, so just bypass all the wasted $ and time. If i could get back all the wasted time and money farting around on different turbo setups...my head hurts.


Also, consider getting different injectors? Pe's 'leak' (poor idle..etc) IMO.

Default Rotated

Thanks! I haven't found anyone on any forum recommend staying with the stock location. I also agree that I can have the piping made up. I would have to go with an external waste gate anyway since its an off the shelf GT30R. I might as well rotate since I'll have to fabricate anyway.

I've sold most of my stock location FP green and supporting mods. Got my 30r installed and getting tuned this weekend.

The rotated 30r is arguably the best performing street/track (not autox) setup. And if you want to go bigger all you have to do is buy a 35r

i dont think there are any cons to going rotated.. maybe the need for special fitting dp/up/inlets.. but thats all understood when you 'go rotated' right?

No down side but costs. They just kick ass and spool better, usually easier to work on too. Its just $$$ in all ways.

I feel rotated setups have a cleaner look and you can run a nice big intake.

What he said.

If you have not already invested in all of your supporting mods, and you want anything near an 30r sized turbo, the rotated kit is the way to go. It MIGHT even be cheaper if you buy used, and/or have piping fabbed.
