I guess I shouldn't be to disappointed in my build as I got my first kill the other night.

Coming home from my sister/brother in laws house an 01 mustang wanted to toy with me around 1 in the morning. I heard him downshift and honk at me so I dropped to 4th and smoked his ***. We pulled over to talk and he claimed he has a professional tune, headers, exhaust and cams/intake done to his car. He has seen me around with my gauges and has been trying to find me to see what I got, well know he knows My car pulls pretty good at 15psi but I want more lol

Any other suggestions on turbo (keeping my current t25 mani/DP) other than cowboys suggestion of a Chinacharger 2870?

Tires come in Wednesday so I will finally get rid of those damn daisies and have a nice set of 6uls on her. The only other thing I want to do is build this 99, or swap heads which may be easier at this point.

I have plans for a similar build here. I'm going to be using a sr20 t25 first, then move up to any number of other t2 flanged turbos available. This is one I had in mind, it seems like the 240 guys say you cant go wrong with it.

How responsive is the spool on that? I don't want anything that will lag, my t25 hits 15psi almost instantly

Impressive that you killed anything other than mosquitoes (with smoke) on those tires!

Maybe I should come looking for you with the G8.

My Miata's still down. Haven't had a day off in a month and a half. Too much travel.

It surprised me as well, can't wait to get the rs3s!!

How much longer will you be out? I plan to ship my ECU back to Dimitris and possibly swap over my 99 head on the car so I will be down over the winter.

I have the china 2870 and slaughtered stockish '01-09 Mustang GTs and Mach 1s at the eighth mile track in a full weight car at 8-9psi on street tires. Car lengths. Frankly, I was pleasantly surprised. Boost rises quickly from 3-4000 rpm. Anything above 3800 is quickly spooled. If I'm below 4000 I should be downshifting anyway. I went with the larger turbo for reduced heat at equivalent power levels because it is for HPDE in Florida and heat is a bitch. It has a three inch downpipe and exhaust.

Doesn't sound to bad of a setup. I want a semi bigger turbo around 9-10psi that will spool quickly, seems the 2870 may be my bitch

But I lied to you guys, the rs3s showed up today!

That one is different from mine in that mine had red plastic compressor inlet and outlet covers, lol. Mine was $250 shipped and came with gaskets and studs. Mine has TBO cast into the turbine housing. TBO is the factory where many of the Chinese turbos are made.
