Car is running great and strong, almost at 1800 miles since the tune, still no knock, amazingly smooth, nice low end. Thanks again to all

MAP informed me that there was a restrictor buit in to the turbo itself. Do you think it is required to incorporate another in the oil feed line?

Good to see more results on this turbo.. I've been running it for 2,000 miles now but still haven't been able to tune it due to shipping delay on my new headers.



It's funny because at first I was set on a 20g-XT, then I started thinking maybe a Dom 1.5-XTR would be better for me. Then all of a sudden I just bought this bad boy on a whim. Looks like I made the right choice.



My car drives great off boost, and it's still fun on a 10psi base map. Can't wait till the rest of my stuff gets here and I can max it out on e85. I think if I can hit 400/400 I should be happy with it for a while.

Kind of wishing this wasn't my DD so I could drop about 700lbs and really have some fun with it.

so the buy on whim was based on $1,199 vs Blouch $1,499? or part of the decision equation was better performance?

I don't know this is what mapermance recommended:
http://www.atpturbo.com/mm5/merchant...gory_Code=GTBB

We also modified the stock drain flange by enlarging the bolt holes. I imagine you can use this one if you don't want to enlarge the holes:

We never considered the Blouch Dom 1.5 XT-R. I don't think it will be able to beat this since they are very similar; modified 30r CHRA with billet wheels. This number and spool are hard to beat. This thing is making more power than my OG FP Green with way less timing, is also spooling better, it spools better than some VF39s on E85. The response is amazing is really hard to explain compared to a journal bearing turbo, but it seems that you are always on boost .

Here are some better numbers when a little cool front came through:


Its hitting 300wtq at 3000rpm

Here is the boost plot, the turbo hold boost very well, it is very smooth and linear. It drops about 1.7psi from 25psi. At 20psi it drops 1psi.



Here is another MAF tab, can you say straight line

Not exactly those numbers, but the buy on whim was based on price difference.. and the fact that the turbo was sitting there staring at me wanting to be used.

The performance we're seeing now is just a bonus.

Just to be clear, you were using the feed line from the old 18g, added the ATP restrictor, then enlarged the stock oil drain holes to be able to bolt the stock drain to the MAP turbo?

My stock feed line is not -AN4, so some would also need to buy something like the FP oil feed line in order to use this turbo then? I already have one, but just trying to make it clear for those who are considering purchases.

On the oil drain we enlarged the two bolt holes, for the restrictor you need a braided -AN4 like the FP oil line. Just remove the banjo bolt thingy

Its holding 5k miles so far, I really love this car is sick . We might be going to the track soon and see what she runs. The owner also bought a used shortblock that we will start building soon along with my car.

Interesting the subaru turbo is ball bearing, billet 20g's seem so over rated these days. How about something new for a change...
