OP, did you have the dyno chart?

Sure.
This is with some e85. Supposed to be conservative.

Thanks for the dyno, ok yup I take back my comment of "just quieten it down and leave it as is", that would be a pig of a street car.

I wonder why they dont rev above 6800rpm?? Thats a pretty narrow powerband! Must be a fair rush when it does hit though

Lol yep, I was like dang!!! Picks up quick for such a large turbo, lol.

Yeah is NOT a turn it down and run it kinda turbo, looks like 300wtq at like 5100rpm ish . . . Think mine peaks around there.

You have the right idea, interested on what you end up picking out.

I guess this type of build is supposed to be about low end drivability and high end power?

I read your build thread, impressed with your car. Will update on once mine comes out of the shop - thinking pte5858 swap and ewg weld in.

Think that is a solid route to take, should be a fun turbo choice from what I have seen from them.

This is sort of funny, maybe sad: I heard (from a guy I know that was just there)that the shop that built the car doesn't like the questions I'm asking regarding a smaller turbo -- They want to see it running the 1000 hp they built it for (quote) . Coincidentally, they haven't answered the phone the last two times I called......

I don't blame them honestly. I'd be sad if I built a rocket ship and found out it was being used to carry freight across three states instead of flying to the moon!

If the shop really cared about the end user, they would tune to your request.
If the hard parts supported major power, fine.
Tune to the owner request even if low on possible power numbers.
They want to pay gas and supply a warranty, fine, otherwise, you want to detune it for your reasons, they should honor it.
Period.......

Tell them to pound salt if they ignore your request, find another tuner.
Period.

In general, you have shiat parts and tuner tells you...fine, lean to tuner (like, you are CATless and tuner states you REALLY need a tune.....whatever)
You are "overbuilt" and want a lower tune, Frikkin tuner may comment, but they should do as you ask.
Not likely to blow things up.
Leave HP on the table? Maybe.
Have headroom for down the road? Likely.

Your bucks, your car. Think about it.

Charlie: exactly, don't want to blow things up. Done it before. Run extreme hp, you'll be breaking things all the time.

Thought I'd post an update.

before changing turbo, tune, etc, I thought I'd drive the car for a while. Being a pretty fresh build, there are a bunch of kinks to work out, like intermittent fuel pressure drops, not tightened front sway bar, and the fact that the car has solid motor mounts and pitch stop which are making my fillings fall out.

So, after getting the car to pass inspection (tint too dark and a CAT add), I have been driving it some and it's pretty insane.

The car will sometimes break loose (265/35 tires) at 45mph at only 18psi of boost. I think it'll boost around 30psi. Its definitely a setup that likes to be driven hard and at high rpms. It is a bit hard to find a place to open the car up. Traffic with this clutch is a bit tedious, but I am getting used to it.

I appreciate all the input in this thread. I'll probably make a new post with some updates as I see what works and what I want to change.

Here is some info on the engine part of build and a pic :

JR Tuned for Flexfuel (e85)
PTE 6466 Turbo
IAG Stage 4 Extreme Shortblock (every option)
IAG Stage 5 Head with Kelford cams
Agency Power Equal Length Headers
Aluminati Motor mounts and Pitch Stop
2000cc injectors
IAG AOS
Aeromotive Fuel Rails
P&L Motorsports FMIC
