2554 is too small, no one makes any real power with one... tiny *** turbo for a tiny *** car.

Seriously though, if it werent for the fact that Im sure I will want more power later, I would go with the 2554, but the 2560 is a better match for me.

Why exactly would one need a GT42 on I assume a BP. Though that head and block doesnt look completely familiar to me. Even on a 2.0 engine, you would never be able to use a turbo of that size to any kind of efficiency (or would you?) Even at 500whp, I wouldnt think that engine could ever flow enough to challenge that turbo in any way. Either way, that manifold is sex, and thats a big *** turbo. What do those cost, like $2000-$2500+?

That's what I was thinking too!! Maybe the car spools it at 6000 has a 9500rpm redline?

That's a Mitsubishi 4G63 (2.0l or more if stroked) or possibly a 4G64 (2.4l).

Could be usable for drags. My buddy had a SR20DET running a T60. It did great out at the drag strip. Not my cup of tea though.

ding ding ding....absolutely correct. the reason to use a gt42r (and quite a few dsm guys here in sac use them) is because:
1) fully built 4g63 motor that takes a **** ton of boost and spins all the way to 10k rpm.
2) full drag race aplication
3) they use antilag+nitrous to spool this sucker
4) runs single digits at the drag strip easily.

A buddy of mine has this setup on a talon, his best recorded et so far is 8.6

Back to the original question...are you all happy with your gt2554r, or did they have problems/quirks etc... I know MANY have HAD them, but what do you think of them now ...

Ok, what are you asking this question for? If you plan on running one and just want to know whether you should or not, just state your planned setup and what goals you have for the car and people will be able to help you out..

to ask the question you did is like asking people: anyone driving a miata? if so what do you think of them?
