i noticed NO difference in spool or power from running no muffler to adding the flowmaster. just make the car a tad quieter.

I swapped my flowmaster out for no-name turbo muffler and gained 200-300rpm spool across the board. That was before and after datalog comparisons. That confirmed most of what I read about those chambered mufflers being engineered for exhaust pulses- of which a turbo eliminates.

What's the specs on your t3/t4? looks like it works well to me.

to be honest, im not sure. i bought it from a guy that bought it from a guy. but it was just rebuilt and the price was right ($100) i would have gone to a standard t3, but couldn't pass up that deal.

Thats the bitch about a lot of turbos, they're nearly impossible to identify.

No A/R stampings on the compressor and turbine? I'm curious what sizes myself wondering what mine will be like..
