    Hi I was wondering if the precision sc34 turbo is a ballbearing turbo.Also would it be a good turbo on a stock gsr motor or is there one better?Also is www.turbogoods.com a good company to get this from has anyone bought one from them?I dont want a ripp off.Also what kind of setup .48a/r or .63a/r would be best?The hp goal is about 350 to 400whp.

    1. Yes Turbogoods.com is a great store to get your turbo from...Alex is a good guy, I dealt with him
    2. No, the SC34 is not ball bearing. Its 360 deg. race bearing
    3. SC34 is a tad small for the GSR, I suggest going with the SC61, it will be more efficient, and its about the same price.
    4. I suggest you go with SC61 T3 hybrid SC6152E


    Good luck with it- its a great turbo

    Thers plenty of Sc61 setups making more than 389 BTW


    Gt35r is a great turbo, but expensive unless you buy it USED

    I Bought the sc61 yesterday luckly my local shop had one in stock.Now I was wondering what do I have to do to get it to fit.The turbo inlet hits the fan and also they said I would have to grind my block.How do you grind the block also what do you do about the fan?

    your probably going to have to grind the block where the stamp is in your case where it says b18c1 any grinder will work alluminum is soft so it is easy. your probably going to have to get a custom radiator and fan something that is slimmer

    also, josh, it looked like yall were having problems with the dyno when you turned up the boost...so 389 on 21lbs would be a lot even with the SC.
