Their both about the same price. Their should be enough people with they by know for some input. I would imagine there might even be a working engine that has been dyno'd to compare them. I'm leaning towards the GT but then I requested the 46mm wastegate because it's made of nickel and Teal claims it will hold up to a turbo rotary. Is this a waste of $150? Anyhow, i'll be running 850/1300's and not shure if I will get a Cosmo pump or the US one. I have the PFC. DOn't have a bov, fpr, and i'm shure theirs more I need. Apexi FMIC, engine has large streetport.

I'd do the r85 because it has greater power potenital if you ever feel like turning up the boost.

I'll never turn up the boost more then 16lbs. Gas is allready over $3/gal and race is is $10/gal. I don't want a dual boost setup. I want a treetable sports car, not a barely tolerable race car. Closer to a Ferrari then a Porsche. I still want some luxary in the ride. I love my A/C and I don't want the hoochies complaing about the noise and the stiffness. I want a fun go kart response. Instant power, most effiecient, esily spooled, most reliable, most fun on the street and weekend track.

So which did you decide to go with? Heavily debating between upgraded twins and a Gt35r myself.

I say R85 all the way, but I have different priorities than you. Maybe think about something other than the 35r if you only plan on running 16psi.....

Decided on the GT35R from A-Spec (A/R=1.02, gate to dp, heat coated). I am having a custom shortie T4 devided manifold. Pricewise, there about the same but the 35R may be alot quicker spooling and more efficient. I don't care about being able to run 20-30lbs. I can't wait to slap er in and take er for a spin!
