I can't wait to see what the 3576 does!!
True, but during spool-up woudn't either WG be closed to promote maximum boost promotion

I can't wait either!!

More testing after the next built motor and bigger turbo goes in.

We looked into a compound setup. It can be done, but the price is astonomical. The bang for the buck just isn't anywhere near a justifiable point. With the little 3071 we have better spool-up characteristics than the VF, which is pretty freaking instant. If you want the BIG turbo AND instantanious power it would be much less costly to go nitros or ALS. Niether I would recommend on the street, but we do work with a hand full of race teams that use ALS, but they are also performing regular engine rebuilds too.

I was sad to see that the 63 fell off so much on your low mount kit, and that contradicts this assumption.
Who's saying we're not collecting that data I won't make it public for the same reason I won't make our header flow data public. Of course those "race" headers with 2" primaries and 2.5 secondaries flow better than ours. Doesn't mean it's a better performing product, but to many, percieve it that way.

Once we finally got it all together, my friend wanted to pull the bolts out to cut them down. I wanted to murder him ahhaha
I can't wait to post some pics, but until I get a piece in my hands I'm very hesitant to. On the Garret hotside thing... I'm sworn to secrecy, but stay tuned
