Default has anyone tried a precision 5557sp turbo?

Just wanted to see if anyone has tried this turbo in comparison to a gt3071r. I am currently running the gt3071r and am looking to upgrade. I am interested in this turbo due to it's higher hp rating and have heard it spools as fast or faster. Also wondering if it would fit an absurdflow low mount v band manifold.

I think Eliminator from m.net w/600 whp mentioned running that turbo, I am not sure if he ever went that route or not. I have the big brother of that turbo and I love it, it's very efficient, billet wheels ftw.

Note that Garrett is releasing a GTX30 and a GTX35. You may want to look into that vs. the PT turbos. The garrett gtx series has billet wheels.

Also, tell us some about your build. I have a GT3071 as well. .86 trim

Our builds sound fairly similar. What psi got you to 392hp?

They do offer vband housings, but likely differ from tial flange.
Just weld a new flange on, its not hard.

those numbers were on my old set up which was a ported 94 head with stock valves. It was running about 26-27psi. Should have some new numbers soon. I'll try and get some pics on here. anything in you want some detailed pictures of?

I'm running a precision sc6062 billet wheel. Spool up is decent and flows 60lbs+/min, i think you'll be fine.

1.8 fwd bp in an mx-3. Stock, cryo treated internals, megasquirt, full race ramhorn, 3in exhaust etc. Haven't dyno'd it yet because i'm waiting on bigger injectors, but i maxed out my 550 cc injectors at 14lbs, so probably low 300's. According to datalogs i'm @ 10lbs around 4500 rpm.

Spool isn't that bad. I wonder how the flow compares to a GT35.

Too bad precision doesn't publish compressor maps.

No such thing as too big if you're drag racing
