Yeah we will see, I am doing everything possible to make that turbo spool as quick as possible, see if we can make it behave similar to a gt 2871. I wish I had gone rotated from the beginning, I was initially scared off from the price but after adding my build all up I am pretty darn close to a rotated. Of course i was not pricing merely a rotated kit, but felt if i was going to spend the money i wanted to purchase a full race twin scroll kit. I do wish I had gone rotated instead of stock location even if it wasn't the full race twin scroll, I would have been able to use a true Garrett gt turbo with genuine Garrett housings, ease of maintenance and accessibility, plus the direct and easy intake tract (I would have done a 4 inch intake that tapered to 3 inches at the turbo to increase the velocity of the air). Well hindisght is 20/20, I will be doing something very well thought out on my built motor, either full race twin scroll efr setup or a twin scroll low mount turbo.
