My tuner here in town feels like he gets better/wider torque plateaus. I'm not going for an aggressive tune ( sub 20 psi) at all as I'm not a super aggressive driver 95% of the time. It seems like there were many comments about the 16g-xt running out of breath. I gathered, perhaps incorrectly, that the 250 rpm's of spool I loose with the 18g-xt is made up for with a much wider better torque curve.

As far as the tranny goes I'm a 2 finger shifter. If it dies, I'll have an excuse for a 6 speed.

Yea for sure a 16g on a 2L. However I myself decided I would be happier on a hta68. Seems to be a happy median between the 18g and 16g xt. Sort of a best of both worlds deal.

Can anyone elaborate on this? How fast exactly does the 16g xt spool vs. the 18g. And how much does the 16g xt loose on the top vs the 18g.

Would be nice to have a little more than an "I like x and i like y" discussion.

Search for a few graphs and you'll see... Believe its around 500rpm and the same for top end.

But you gotta think of transition response and how high you'll rev the motor(longitivity of your motor)

For hwy cars 18g or 20g and for city 16g... But it can vary between setups also so its really hard to judge

Thought I'd update this thread with some first hand experience. I've been driving my 02 sedan with the new 18g-XT and PW-TMIC setup for 2 months now. A Domtune resulted in 323whp and 318 ft/lbs, and that was with the stock air intake. I could not be happier. Lag is only barely more noticeable that my previous stock td04 stage 2 OTS set-up, and from ~3500 rpm on my bugeye is now a BEAR. +1 for going with the 18g-XT. great DD with more than enough teeth for me when the roads are empty.

Cheers.

Blouch TD05 18g here. Peak 335whp/280wtq with an STi TMIC/750cc injectors/KSTech shortram/turbo inlet/tgv deletes and catted turboback. Holds 300+whp thru redline at 7200 rpm. I dont mind winding the car out though so I love it, it lags quite a bit down low but this thing just never runs out of juice up top. 15k miles on this setup with an STi RA gearset and stock clutch, zero problems so far. Drive it to work daily.

I have a never used TD05 18G that I bought from Deadbolt several years ago. How does the old 18G compare to the 16gxt? I understand that the 18G used a 39 lb. wheel and the 16gxt uses a 41 lb. wheel. I would be interested in the 16gxt if it provided the

same power with quicker spool and better response

or

greater power with equal spool and response

I read one comment that stated the 16gxt had the same power and spooled 500 RPMs sooner, however, this was hearsay.

I would appreciate responses from those who have direct knowledge and not hearsay.

Thank you
