LOL you're funny ^^^ I'm NOT concerned about being the fastest TD04 out there that's not what I build my car for I have never been down a drag strip in my suby and don't plan on it.. do you seriously think I give a flying turd if my car is faster than joe shmo HaHa My main concern is spool and torque on my 2.0 and the fact is this turbo setup fits my needs better than a 39 or 43 and I don't see a VF-39 out spooling the 19t upgrade any time soon, not to mention it puts out close to the same power as a 39 and for a practically a brand new turbo you can't beat the price over a new VF-39

Also, dyno numbers and logging may not tell you much about your almighty "trap speed" and "1/4 mile times" but they do show factually information like spool and horsepower that can be utilized to compare to other setups(same dyno)... I have all the respect for drag guys, however some may come off as ignorant it's NOT what I'm into... to each his own...
