Default TD06 20g VS. FP GREEN VS. DOM

Need some help guys, i want a turbo to not have too much lag but i live with some. I was looking at a 20g but then i get a great offer for a Green, but at the same time i was looking at a BB turbo so was thinking of a DOM. My power goal is 350awhp, and if the turbo can handle it a lil more. This will be on a 04 sti that is a DD and most of the time i will be in traffic. ****ing am rush hr.

TD05 8cm^2 20g would be your best DD turbo. For me I would add a 3" inlet size to the turbo as well over the 2.4"

The Dom3 and similar sized turbos are completely civilized below around 3700-4k on the 2.5, so if you are banking on stop and go traffic I would recommend that.

to be honest, GT52 and dom3 will spool just as fast if not faster than a 20G, but make better power and flow more.

I think GT52/Dom3 would fit your goals best. I have a GT52 and it is amazing, but I really wish it came with an 8cm hotside and 3" inlet like you can get on the Dom3.

thepigsti is completely right. I drive in DC and in traffic its really well behaved. You only start building real boost when you want to. Just make sure you get good TGV deletes (Grimmspeed) so you don't idle like popcorn.

I personaly have a Dom III, it is a great set up,with all the supporting mods. I make 405 awhp, this is with 91 Oct. and alky.
But You may want to check into JDM twinscroll , is by far, the best set up for quick spooling, Just don't know haw much power it will support.

I run a Dom 4, reliability is awesome, never had a problem with it, gets on and off boost quick. Been running it for about 4500 miles, the only way I'll switch is if they make a rotated Dom 4 lol.

350awhp from a 20G only happens on a dynojet - if that is what you wan't, go for it. If you really want 350awhp, start with a Dom3.

Im not dogging you man....but its funny that you have only been running this turbo for about 4500 miles and consider it solid! Blouch makes very good turbos from what I hear! Dont get me wrong....its just that I have an APS SR56 turbo and I have been running it for roughly 20,000-25,000 miles with ZERO problems! From what I have been reading, FP Greens are starting to be "out dated".....there are better option out there ESPECIALLY better reliability then those Greens, just my .02

It's called a GT35...

The Dom 3/4 (and maybe others) are just Garrett turbos smashed into a tiny compressor so they'll fit in the stock location. If you rotate it, you can just go with the original Garrett without any of those compromises.

Well, so far I'd say it's solid. I'm not expecting it to go out anytime soon, but I could just be a nuthugger.

I have a 3 inch inlet, 8CM hotside Green.... I wish I would have gone with the DOM 3, faster spool (thanks to bb), reliability, and customer service (haven't had to deal with them yet, but I hear FP's cust. service is not so good).

I have an 06 wrx with a Blouch dom 1.0 which is = to a FP green. it is a good turbo full boost around 3800-4000rpm. if i could do it again i would save more money and get a Dom 3.0. more hp and just as good if not better spool.

You are asking questions to people that are long dead.

I'd recommend you stop that and start asking these questions to your tuner. If you want 410 on 93, you should look up a bit. I JUST made 411 on 93 with a DOM 3.5 as an idea on a dynojet.

Yo yo yo, im not dead. Im very well alive. At-least i hope im not, ow crap, am I a Zombie?

Just re-read my post and holy crap it reads like I had a stroke. Sorry for the grammar nightmare.

If anyone cares i went with a FP Green, then upgraded to their new design FP HTZ Green. Great turbo and no regrets. Made 420 WHP on a mustang dyno with JR tunning the car. And being in traffic was not to bad.
