Did you carry over the same actuator?

it would be interesting to see because everyone says it's the best turbo out there for under 250whp but i've never even seen a dyno close to that mark

Excuse me? I said I was no expert. I never injected any personal experience either as I don't have any. I even said that what I was saying was common knowledge which you seem to agree with. Why are you attacking me? I wasn't being disrespectful to you or anybody else. You have offended me.

EDIT: Oh, you're Canadian. I understand now.

Nope. I used a helper spring on the greddy actuator, it held 9psi with with out the mbc. The actuator on the gt2554r I made adjustable and it held approximately the same amount according to the boost gauge.

ALL things being equal except the turbo itself, I'd wager a lot of money that the gt2554r is a faster spooling turbo.

You can have an opinion when you either 1)Install a turbo on your own car. or 2)Become Canadian.
