Question tho... is it possible to produce this sort of power with a stock location turbo? I don't want to go rotated so that kinda dismisses the GT series turbo's from what I have seen. Red is too big. What turbo characteristics are most like the 30r .63 that will fit under the hood and bolt up? Clipped 8cm Green maybe?

I agree with akira, the Dom III is basically a stock location 30r, another one to look into would be the Element GT 52. These are both fairly similar turbos, and if looking for big power, should be had with the 8cm hot side and an EWG setup for boost control. Would you get numbers like this with either of these turbos? Highly unlikely. The hotside isn't big enough for our engines with that big of a turbo. Clark (AZ SCOOBIE) has said it over and over. Doesn't make it gospel necessarily, but he's not the only one saying it. My .02

p.s. Alittle better spool and less power could be had with something like the Dom 2.5r

edit - Check here for the most impressive results i've seen with the stock location 30R's. Post #55
