Thanks for your positive feedback on the prototype. Have you had a chance to get it installed yet? Can't wait to see your results!

The compressor housing will make the IC pipe or TMIC elbow fitment great. The Turbine housing is a 8cm and a rather nicely constructed piece. Aslo has a billet adjustable wastegate actuator.

This turbo will be going on my04 forester. The car is rather built so Ill be able to push the unit for our testing. Ill be tuning a regular conservative tune, and another more aggressive tune.

Ill post up pictures soon. First impression is the unit was packaged very well as you would expect from SteamSpeed/Kamak/Kinugawa. The turbo looks great. Ive deff help alot of turbos and run a bunch of different setup on a few of my scoobs. Over all this seems to be a very high quality unit.

I look forward to testing this unit and getting the car on a few different dynos to share the results.

Jealous!

I've got an 18G, and have been eyeballing a GTX2876 since it first was announced as the only viable upgrade for it (without upping redline and supporting air flow mods). It's great to see a stock location product out there finally. I've had my current Forester XT for a couple years on 93 octane and later E85. I've come to really like how the old 18G performs but am always curious what newer gen products can offer. I use my FXT for auto-x and rally-x, so low end spool has always been important. However, there's enough grip, even on dirt, to make use of more than what a TD04 can offer. Peak power is just too low, even modified to a 19T. The 18G spools very near but will ride the surge line hard if pushed for high boost under 3k. The GTX2876 compressor has been the only modern product that seems more promising. I've never seen the GTX2876 product offered for Subaru fitment yet though, not even on ATP's website, although maybe it can be ordered and simply never shown. It's good to hear that someone's doing it at least, and advertising. Kudos to you SteamSpeed for that.

TD06SL2-GTX3071 vs. VF39


^That one's a bit misleading due to perspective. Haha. Here's a more accurate one:





Turbo includes nice, multi layer gaskets and a small compressor to wastegate vacuum line.


Bolted on. Stock oil line fits great. Used the included banjo bolt and crush washers.


Oil drain lines up well.


Front.


Rear.


Side.

Wait a sec, what happened to your rotated setup? I just sold my rotated 6266 setup and am back on OG Green.

Is NF a supplier for kamak/steam speed or will they be in the future?

I am looking to retire my OG Green 8cm, can someone point me in the directon of something within OG FP red efficency/lb min territory in kamak line up.

My 2011 WRX is gone. I now have a 2002 WRX that this is going into.

I got the turbo directly from Steam Speed.

The 60-1 upgrade that Kinugawa has is pretty similar to an FP Red.

But I'd rather have the 25G than the 60-1.

Cross reading threads; Gabe dude says that the 60-1 is primarily geared toward higher displacement vehicles.

Quoted on topic of 60-1 vs 25g:

"It is the size and shape of the blades. The 25G 5x5 Kamak wheel has proven to spool under 4K rpm on DSMs and EVOs making tons of TQ. The 60-1 blade design flows more air, but the surgline is much farther to the right compared to a 25G design. Also, the 60-1 is an old Garret design, not an old Mitsubishi design (Mitsu is known for making their turbos spool fast, even the large ones). Kamak may have made some tweaks (like removing 2 blades and lengthening the existing blades to fit better in the 3 inch compressor housing, optimizing flow), but the characteristics of each compressor blade remains the same. Your road dyno matches the later spool of the 60-1 wheel. The 60-1 has more potential peak WHP than the 25G while the 25G has more potential peak TQ. Again, it is the blade/wheel design and not because it is a 5x5 instead of a 6x6. Also, other engine mods can have a great effect upon spool. I gained 700 RPM of spool by changing the stock BPV to a TXS RFL BPV. "


-Gabe



Yes i understand that evo to sti/wrx is apples to oranges when comparing lenght of exhaust travel, piping, and cylinder heads, etc.

I remember rewt trying out 60-1 and reporting similar results way back when.

thinking about running this 20g on my 205. Currently trying to decide weather or not it would be worth doing a 2.1 liter build.

Yes it would work well on a stroker or 2.0 it might have a tad of lag but nothing insane. the 20g on your stroker will prob spool as fast as your current 18g depending on if its a TD05 or TD06 etc.

Tonight Im finally installing the SteamSpeed prototype Garret/Mitsubishi hybrid turbo. Its a Garret 47lbs GTX2867R billet compressor wheel, paired with a Mistubishi style Kamak/Kinugawa STS 9 blade TD05h turbine wheel in a 8cm housing. Kamak/Kinugawa Upgraded journal bearing in their Mitsubishi style center section. Custom billet adjustable wastegate actuator.

Should be a great setup for those that want a great 2.0 turbo, or lightening spool in a 2.5. Im driving about 300 miles to upstate ny this weekend. I want to be easy on it when I get it on is ill get that done. Im sure Ill see a few psi here and there but that it. This coming week it will see some boost.

Im rather sad I couldn't get it on before the last autox event that's somewhat local to me. I think Im going to run a TSD Rally in a few weeks though with my fiancÚ.

Thanks for the update, can wait to see how it does.


Are looking for more more testers with our 67mm prototype. PM us if you are interested.

Well I have some miles on my 67mm prototype. 5bout 570 miles after this weekends trip. It spools on my 2.5 fast rather quickly. I was happy to see this! Once I gave it some boost around wastegate pressure it comes alive. I hit 18-20 psi and it seems to be happy up there. I need to go over my fueling tables. I think this turbo could really shine in the 18-20+psi range if your setup is up to the task. Im going to start adding in some waste gate duty cycle and see how I can get this thing to spool. I did have a lil boost creap from the TD05 8cm IWG but is might not happen to everyone with a 2.5ltr. I have everything pnpd including heads and equal length headers so my motor is most likely flowing a lil more then the stock longblock setup.

Im going to do some logs and contact Sam a SteamSpeed to see if we can come up with something to get rid of the creep with out ant other ill effects. I think this turbo could be great for a wide range of folks. On the autox course this think might be the ticket for more modified cars...

I considered pulling the exhaust housing off and massaging it a little as ive been port and polishing turbos with good results for years. Id like to speak to Sam @ SteamSpeed first though...

Compared to the Blouch 16gxt I just pulled off this thing moves up top. I feel Ill be able to get it to spool as fast as the 16gxt with no ill effects but logs will tell.

Fitment was happy with fitment of the turbo. I did decide to flip and rotate the V-band clamp on the exhaust housing side to get more room near my tranny. I also rotated the wastegate top so the bard was towards about 8 oclock. Im currently running a 08+ sti tmic which is longer on the turbo side. I had a clearance issue and rotating it made it pit perfect. of you have a tmic made for a 02-07 this would not be a issue. I will be installing the GrimmSpeed tmic I have but I want to get a good comparison of the turbos alone with out changing anything else. The tmic will go on soon before I put it on the dyno.

The design of the compressor housing fits well. The tmic 90* elbow has a nice amount of clearance from the throttle harness/wires. Ive had a lot of turbo setups that made the elbow smash into them which you would prefer not happen. Ill post up pics on fitment later though. Not nice pics like xluben. his pics are always amazing. haha

Ian,

^That sounds like promising results.

My TD06SL2-5371 should be up and running soon. The motor is finally back in the car. Just waiting on a few small things before finishing it up.

Ready.


Real tools.


Ready to go in.


Didn't trust the straps so we dropped it in by hand.


Safely in place.


More things attached.


Cleaning up wiring. MapDCCD, VSSPro, Wideband AFR, Boost, Oil Pressure.


Also changed the PS/alternator belt on my brother's car. Easy fix for a loud squeal he had.

Very nice! I think I might want to try the turbo your going to run after Im done with this on the dyno. We shall see...

Is there anyone else currently testing the STS TD05h-GTX2867R combo? Or just me so far?
