For these people who can just swap out to a big stock location turbo, rotated might not be the best choice
But yeah if someone was dumping everything in at once it'd be kinda stupid not to go rotated
i went from a 18g, fmic, ewg, etc., etc., to a stock location atp 30r. mainly because i got a great deal and i already had the other bolt ons.
i dont know how it is on 2.5l but on the 2.0l world.. rotated is a huge ass difference in torque. token negro made 350whp 350tq, tell me a stock location 30r that can do that? i haven't seen a stock location turbo period that can do that... more like 350whp 300wtq lol
i hate the stock location inlet.. it's a tight fit and prone to leaks. specially the 3" inlet. none of the less i don't like it. i wish they would've made the stock location a rotated style.. then i probably wouldn't argue so much about it.
now isn't the dom 4 like a 1700-1800 dollar turbo? wow thats like 2/3s from a rotated kit...
the point is that there is a difference between rotated and stock location and if your spending all that money. why not do it right the first time so you dont cry about it later.
