    Should I be 100% about this turbo for my setup
    Garrett T3/60-1 .48a/r
    Heres my setup:
    B18a
    9:1 CP
    Eagle H beam rods
    ARP head studs
    3 angle valve job
    minor P&P
    XS Power exhaust mani (got it for free)
    3" full exhaust including DP
    Shooting for 300 HP not WHP I changed my mind.
    Im not sure how much psi it would take to reach that with this setup.
    My tuner said 13-18 but he can't be positive

    I heard this turbo has a powerband up to the GSR's Redline. I dont know anything about turbos but looking for some opinions

    sounds about right to me... i dont think it would take as high as 18.. im thinkin more in the 14 to 15 range.. i could be wrong though...

    This does seem like a really nice turbo and I didn't wanna pay $700 f*cking dollars if someone knows one thats better and cheaper. Cool thanks man.

    you may wanna look into a t3/to4e turbo... thats what im planning on usin for my build... they arent very big and spool pretty low in the rpm range.. most people ive read that use them are pushin around 300 to 400 whp... for my build im lookin for around 300whp maybe alittle lower.. i want to have some traction lol
