Yes, the GTX is a bolt-on upgrade for a GT that adds 100+ hp with the same spool.

And the EFR is even better (but even more expensive and requires different turbo manifold for clearance).

EWG sounds the same if you pipe it back in downstream, and is unbearably loud if you don't. Creep can be solved in other ways, the big thing the EWG gives you is controllability over a wider range of EBC.

How much is a new gtx turbo that spools good and can do 400hp?

The efr6258 I bought for $1260 shipped and last I checked a gtx equivalent was considerably more $$$

Where can I find a 6258 for $1260? Everywhere I look, there are at least $1700. I'm all in for saving ~$500.

I believe the $1260 price is without the turbine housing and the $1700 is with. GTX2860R is around $1400-1500 with.

Kinda need the housing to run the turbo, I thought maybe he had some secret (not so secret) hook-up.

No idea, I bought my turbo from them last year, and asked if they can price match thmotorsports $1260 and they did and shipped my turbo next day,
Where thmotorsports i was waiting 2 months with no ship date in sight.

I also asked them if they can do the same price for my miata turbo peeps, Gavin said no problem.

So I'd call him and ask if they can do a similar price break on a 7163

I wouldn't. The money obviously doesn't go towards a "Make the forums work consistently" fund.

All this talk about supercores, if anyone is buying a 62/6758 I have a t25 0.64A/R turbine housing for sale.

Any thoughts on the Trackspeed Engineering EFR manifold? I contacted Kraken but I wasn't able to get a price on the manifold by itself. I do not need the down pipe, as I will be fabricating my own exhaust. I like Trackspeed's manifold, it holds the turbo in a good location for 'over the rad' style charge piping (after clocking the compressor cover and most likely deleting P/S) and sits the turbo forward enough in the bay to have a decent length hood exit, at least enough to get accurate AFR readings. I'm not sure of any flow comparisons between the Kraken and Trackspeed manifolds, but both look like they flow excellent and will easily support past my power goal. Trackspeed is also located in the US so no weird currency conversions and super long shipping times.

P.S. Not rejecting any advice or suggestions! Just trying to come up with ideas to make this build truly my own. I could just get an eBay T25 manifold and have a hell of a time fitting everything but I need something that will position the turbo in a remotely correct place to do the routing I want and flow well.

oh god, you said "hood exit"

contact Kraken on facebook messenger, he is fairly responsive there.

I think manifold only is around $450-500

TSE is the best of the best as far as T25 EFR manifolds/kits go. Kraken a close second.
TSE will be spendy for a manifold only.

ebay tacotaco wont work with an EFR, the compressor housing will hit the cars side rail

Don't do a hood exit unless you've already lost 80% of your brain cells due to vaping the phattest of clouds.

If hood-exits make a build "truly your own" then you have pretty low standards. Simply adding to the many crap sounding cars in Houston.

Savington , thank you for designing your manifold so we can have a decent length hood exit. When will your hood exit exhaust be available?
