This is a great turbo for stock heads and high octane (it needs high octane). However, with headwork I was losing all power by 6500rpm. Hence why I now have a dom 3xt-r. I wait for the power but it provides a longer rpm power band.
I agree with that statement. It took me a large top mount and meth to make mine do anything worth while. I am sort of bummed with regard to the headwork making the power suck. Guess I'll have to rethink my hybrid strategy if my 2.0 goes pop as I was thinking of doing machining and cams.
