The T60r is a 60lb/min compressor with a 3" inlet exactly the same as the Blouch DOM 4.0XTR, the only differences between the turbos are the DOM comes with a billet compressor wheel and comes with the 10cm exhaust housing. These are options on the T60r also, SLR wheel and 10.5cm exhaust housing.
However, time and time I see the blouch turbo way out perform the AMR equal. Actually the DOM3 XTR is always beating the T60r, and it spools much quicker since the DOM3 only has a 52lb/min wheel ..

I guess all im saying is what holds the AMR turbo back from flowing like the Blouch turbos of the same size. I need to see the T60r with SLR wheel and 10.5cm hotside with 3" inlet on a dyno to truly compare which ~60lb/min stock location turbo is best. All are around the same price, $1800 (the base T60r with 8cm and reg comp wheel does win the price battle at under $1400)
I would like a serious test to be conducted with the different large stock location turbos on the same dyno in the same car so the supporting mods are equal. We need to know which is the best flowing, highest performing stock location, because you dont always have to go rotated to make good power.
BTW OP something is not right is a 8cm turbo is at 300 wtq at 4500 rpm... VF series turbos have that bested by a long shot...
