Waiting to see what data we get back from this first.



The G-series is a new turbo. Check out the turbine and compressor maps for flow specs and comparative data. In short, the G-Series are a smaller turbo with improved flow capabilities. So at the same peak power numbers it will respond better. Or, at the same response RPM, it will make more power.







About an inch longer with the IWG.











Yes, this^ and see my comments above
Is this a bolt on change for existing spoolinator kits?

Do you know if the regular vband g25 will fit your original kit?

From the adapter side possibly... probably.

On the downpipe side, no. The G-series is a longer turbo.

I'm sorry... I meant if you compared original Spoolinator to the IWG G-Series here. EWG to EWG pretty good chance. See below.

Good question. The dimensions of the Tial And Garrett are off in relationship from inlet to outlet distances to each other. The v-bands themselves are VERY close and very well likely will be swappable. The biggest difference I see is that the height of the outlet is different by ~1/4". My gut feeling is that there is at least this much available wiggle room in the cat back to still get them to bolt up.

So... we're on our own to see if it will fit

Only if you want an answer sooner than later. The car this will eventually go into will not be ready for a month or so.

Is there more, less, or equal block clearancing with the g25?

I haven't even assembled my spoolinator setup and these guys are already sweating over something new being built. Have any of the people asking ran the spoolinator kit yet? Sheesh, it appears I'm not keeping up with the trends.

I for one have been planning on purchasing a spoolinator kit for a while now but would like to know the results, pros cons etc of the new options first before deciding which one to buy for my needs...

pros? stock location and the use of the tial turbine housing.
cons you have to grind away part of the block to get the compressor housing to fit.
I have the gtx 3067 on my 2.1 stroker, its great once you get past the 4000 mark. I am also using the .82 ar housing so that might have something to do with it. but yeah I honestly havent see anyone use like a atp gtx 3067 stock placement turbo to compare but yeah its good

if it were up to me, I would wait til the g25 660 comes in a kit

We'll have the turbo mounted and start testing after Wicked Big Meet in two weeks

Thanks for being patient!

I've been spending way too much time agonizing over Spoolinator vs rotated... Love the idea of the GTX3071 gen 2 running in the "stock" location minus the crappy turbine housing the factory setup uses. One question I haven't really seen an answer to is the fitment of the turbo inlets to this kit. A lot of the stock location turbos with 3" inlets kink the crap out of the inlet tube trying to get around the tgv bodies. Does this setup move the turbo over slightly and get a straighter shot under the manifold? The other question I have is EWG recirculation... Any reason you don't design these downpipes for recirculation?

its not the fitment of the inlet that is the problem its the amount you have to grind down to get the turbine housing to fit that is the question to be asked, if you want send me a pm and you can look at mine. in im HB

I'm not super concerned about the grinding part. There are enough points of contact between the engine and the trans and the factor of safety in that for any type of failure should be large. I'll send you a PM, I'd love to see a better angle of the inlet than I've been able to find.

A big selling point for a rotated setup is getting a smoother inlet, straight shot with no pinch points. The stock location turbos with 3" compressor inlets generally get badly pinched by the tgv which disrupts flow and loses power, not as much loss as the turbine housing but still not insignificant. Plus it's a b*$ch to put on. I'm wanting to know if the spoolinator setup either sets the turbo back slightly, shifts it towards the driver side(LHD) slightly or rotates it slightly so it isn't pointing straight at the tgv. More reason to use an aftermarket or jdm intake manifold with no tgvs I guess.

Inlet position varies more than you think between different "stock location" turbochargers.

I have an ATP GT3076 with an APS 3 inch metal inlet pipe, and the edge of the turbo inlet is next to the TGV housing, but the flow path isn't bad. It's a tight fit, but everything does fit.

I've seen photos of turbo installs where the incoming air has to zig-zag drastically around the TGV housing on its way to the impeller, and the coupling between the turbo inlet and the inlet pipe gets horribly tortured. Those are the ones that gave stock location turbochargers such a bad reputation. Painful to install and sub-standard results.

The turbo centerlines look like they're a half-inch to the right of where ATP's exhaust housing puts their centerline. And maybe a half-inch forward as well, mashed right up against the TGV housing.

I have not seen photos showing the placement of the turbo inlets and the TGVs on any Spoolinator setups, so I'm curious too.

At some point I'm going to want to replace my GT3076 with a GTX30something.

Yup exactly. Some are really really bad to the point where people are grinding away at their TGV housings to get enough clearance to get it on at all and then it's kinked and barely has the clamp on it.

I know some are much better than others. But if the Spoolinator is a straighter shot it should be part of the marketing gimmick cuz really that's the only major downside to having the inlet under the intake manifold. The Spoolinator fixes the poor turbine housing problem so if it fixes the poor inlet angle problem then why bother going rotated.
