Default Ok, how laggy is this SOB gonna be?

1.6, 5spd 4.3 rear
Begi Pulse manifold converted to T3
Turbonetics T3 Super 60, .63 Hotside
2.5 Mandrel downpipe, no cat, magnaflow 2.5" catback
20x16x2.5 Custom IC, Haven't decided on charge pipes yet(recommendations?)
Aiming for 10psi

By the looks of the spool thread I should be exspecting 5-6psi in the 3500ish rpm range, and 10 around 4k?

get a .48 hotside
I dont think you will make your spool goals on a .63

thats pretty much the exact turbo I am about to be running for my setup. Will be a tad more laggy than the .48, but have more power per psi due to less backpressure. Will be interesting to see how it works out because i too have received the same criticism, but nobody runs a .63 t3 hotside that I know of. Should be similar to Hustler's spool with his .86 t2 hotside.

I suspect you'll make 10psi by 4K even with that .63 A/R housing....

With a good MBC it will be at full boost by 4k easy. If you got a snazzy dual port diaphragm for the wasteagate you could knock a few hundred RPMs off of that too.
