Default So off goes the last part of my Greddy kit!

After buying the Greddy kit and over the past year upgrading every single part except the turbo...well sent the turbo out today to G-Pop shop to get the T19 upgrade on the compressor. They say its rated for 320hp now. Should have it back before x-mas and I will give a report got all you still running a greddy turbo.

You and me both...I sent mine out a few days ago. The 19-T wheel isn't supposed to hurt spool to much either. I'm excited. I should have mine back in a couple of weeks

Here is where we sent it them.

Depending on the turbo with a normal rebuild should be under $600

Might actually be nice to hurt spool a little.. tame the on/off nature of this turbo. Very interested to see how this works out for you.

I was planning on using this turbo w/ a 1.8 motor once I killed this one, so we might have some great comparison data soon.

Worse in that it might increase the rapidness of the boost onset, or that it might simply move the "switch" higher in the rev range?

worse that it will come on at about the same time but come on stronger.

Ride it my pony
My saddle's waiting
Come and jump on it

Its back from G-Pop shop to get the T19 upgrade on the compressor. Also got a waste gate actuator that good for 14psi and is not much bigger than the stock greddy part. Can wait to put it on!

Here is the sex!
