Ok, so at this point, I can easily see this turbo will not support my power goal of 300whp. Now the question is, what chinacharger would meet my needs while keeping the begi t2 log manifold, and dp. I am doing a lot of research, but figured I'd get others opinions as well.

Just picked up a genuine gt2860r, so this one is for sale. Any idea how much its worth.

I'd expect no more than 50$.

Did you ever find out about this?

I have the same turbo, FM used this in early kits. It's using sleeve bearings, not ball bearings. I replaced it with a 2554R a couple of months ago. Even Brandon at FM couldn't tell me the model number.

Never dynoed it, I ran it at 9PSI so I figure around 160-180 hp.
Back then, I ran the stock exhaust and cat, spool wasn't quite as quick as the 2554R with the FM exhaust I have now but not bad either.

I have mine on sale too, $50 plus shipping, freshly rebuilt, new bearings, etc..
