Yeah but ScoobyClinic will cost more though? Considering they charge 1250 Pounds plus another 150 pounds for the housing. That makes the turbo even more costly to an American consumer at approximately $2,250, Versus $1,600 from Blouch.

Agreed, hence why I'll be buying from Blouch. Sucks to put my car under for that period of time though.

Not to mention the shipping (figure $100+) and any importing fees.

I bet that 20g would avoid the install headache of the 2.5xtr.. And from what ive researched, it only makes about 20bhp less than the 2.5. The ball bearing system would be a plus however

Yeah I am starting to think I will just get the 20G-XT TS. Seems over in Australia those on EJ207's are getting full boost by 3800 rpm on the Single Scroll 20G-XT. Impressive I would have to say. Would have to think the TS variant will bring the onset of boost on a tad faster, however it will be much smoother.

3800 on a 350+ whp two liter? That revs to 8k? That sounds like a wild ride to me. Do you have a link I could follow to these results?

So here is a few different links in Regards to the Blouch XT threads. Also it seems that over in Australia these Turbo's are branded by a different company known as CBRD. Which is famous for their EVO Turbo's and they are located within an hour from Blouch. So I am thinking that they are reselling these for Blouch in different parts of the world? Only difference that I know of is that they Anodize the Compressor Wheel Blue. I am going to give CBRD a call today and ask them about these turbo's and hopeful get some more info.

Just got off the phone with Blouch, my housing was sent out for coating on Monday with expected eta of two weeks before they get it back to finish it. They did advise me that running the 3" inlet could make the install a PITA. BUT after discussing it, we agreed that the main issue for people with the 3" inlet is probably installing it with everything else in the motor installed (manifold etc) while everything on mine has been taken off. Kinda like how people complain about the APS/AMR metal inlets being a PITA to install, but if you already have your manifold off it's no biggie.

So I have essentially two weeks to decide on the 3" inlet. My gut is telling me to go for it and make it work. He told me others in the UK have done it, but cursed like crazy installing it. I can live with cursing

So what's your total turn around from when they receive it to when they finish? I'd have to research more about the difference between inlet size and impact on performance before I chime in on that..

IMO remove the manifold, do phenolic spacers and your inlet and turbo all in one and be done with it? Maybe do a little polish too

Looking forward to your results either way, 2.4" or 3" inlet. However i wonder if the 3" is truly needed on a 2.0L and the SC46 isn't a huge turbo to require that kind of flow...Then again I am no tuner.

My searches have seemed to conclude that as well. Spool MAY be improved, but it's negligible.

It's been two weeks or so since I sent it, I haven't been keeping track since my car is in a different state anyways.

I'm way ahead of you, have had the 8mm phenolic spacers ready and waiting with the manifold and everything off. Gonna be a lot of things done all in one shot.

To contribute to the stock location ts turbo thread, we sent one of our mint condition vf37's to one of our US turbo manufacturers to see what they could do with it regarding new wheel and bearing options. No promises are being made, but were going to work with them to see if we can provide another option for you guys. We'll see. I'll keep you posted with any updates or info that we figure out.
