I got the GT40....immediately sold it (at a loss of course) and got the Big Kahuna.

I have better side by side in another post of the GT40 and my old TO4.

This turbine is Ceramic coated and port matched for the HKS divided manifold.

I am suprised at how this Kahuna seems smaller than the GT40 ....just me.

I believe that the "Big Kahuna" is a T04R

Which one of those turbos is the ceramic coated one? How much did it cost to get done?

The one with SHINEY PANTS...uh I mean shiney turbine.$60 bucks Cheapturbo.com or any powder coating facilitiy should have it as one of their mixes.

The pic with elongated turbine was the GT40.

the last image, the GT40 is the one on the right, correct? Isn't that a 4082? Why not just throw a 4088 52 trim on the 4082? I just had this done. That way you're running a GT turbine instead of a heavy, laggy and restrictive T series turbine. You would have saved yourself some money in the process.



The coating looks good. What's the temp range? I don't know of a single "shiny" cermet that'll withstand turbine housing temps. Only the black stuff seems to last (2400F)



What are the specs on the compressor side again?

well when I tried to order the GT I asked for the bigger wheel and they said they werent making that combo any more...I didnt know any better. So you and I get this and then I start seeing others getting a little flat at 17lbs. **** that I want 20. So I got the TO4R.

The coating I dont know about temps and your are correct.If nothing else maaybe it will slow the oxidation.

Turbine housing is 1.00 divided to match the manifold.
