    ok, then how much of the spool time is determined by the psi setting vs the physical charistics of the turbo or vice versa?

    Sorry, NOOB here. How do I get my turbo to boost quicker? It just says turbo t3/t4 .60 I have a 10lb spring in it but it doesn't start to boost till around 3500 and I don't hit full boost till about 5500 or more rpm's. I would love it to kick in quicker or just buy a better turbo. Any suggestions??

    buy a smaller turbo, and loss some power, or by a hybrid turbo that spools quicker

    Yea, I wasn't happy with the power output on the .42/.48 but I loved how quick it spooled, so I upgraded the compressor housing to a .60. It was exactly what I was looking for.

    Like t3t4 said, smaller turbo or build a hybrid turbo like I did.

    the b18b1 + t3/t4 60 made 6.5psi @2800rpm, 10psi @ 3250 - 4000 all depending on throttle %. whenever i pick out a new snail for the new setup, ill let ya know how it runs. trying to find a good setup for the b16--thinking i need something a bit smaller if i dont want big lag. maybe a custom hybrid. we'll see......
