I've got a garrett 60-1 hifi right now thats been damaged and am thinking of replacing it with a T04b. The turbo i'm considering is has a .60 a/r compressor housing 54mm trim with a 1.15 hotside.



My 60-1 hifi was a .55 a/r compressor P trim with a 1.32 hotside. I'm trying to limit my power output, i'm afraid of cracking my rear plate (i've got an S4), but I also want to make sure I'm going to have decent power with my half bridge port.



Any input that will help with my decision would be great.



Thanks, Chris

What do you mean by too small? When I hear someone say that I think: small = choking on too small of an exhaust side.



As far as too small of a compressor wheel, its not too small.

I wouldn't try for 500hp on a B on a E you could get 500 flywheel hp tho.

you're trying to limit your hp to 500hp at the flywheel?
