i was pretty set on getting demetrios' up coming turbo kit. until our *** licking (compliment) friend 9BASE3 came up with a very awesome turbo kit for a very awesome price.



here is the link to demetrios' turbo, from what i see from the dyno graph's it seems to have a very fast spool up, and an endless amount of torque. according to dee and keith, the kit will be around $3,000 (final price is undisclosed).



http://www.kgparts.com/R85.htm <-- link to dyno



now, which of these of the other turbos would give me similar numbers, in reguards to spool up time, as well as torque and hp curves. im not very knowledgable with turbos. jsut like im not knowledgeable with engines. so any info and opinions would help a lot.



the turbo is going to go to a frequently driven car, so i want to avoid a laggy and peaky hp and tq curve..... it will be bolted to a motor with very large street ports



thanks everyone

Martin, if you have a nice big port, you'd be pretty happy with any of those turbos.. the 1.00 will be the slowest spooling, of course.. But you really can't tell.. I've ridden in a customers GT40R Supra with a 1.36 hotside... now THAT was laggy, but not even as bad as people make it seem LOL

i'd spend the extra dough and go for the demitrios. the reason it's more expensive is cause it's made from a metal called inconel that will never crack and we all know how hot the rotary's get, well the inconel wont even be fazed by the heat. it's crazy **** and hard to find.

If, you wipe your *** with $100 bills, then you can get a custom turbo made out of Pyromet 51. It's some crazy alloy that has 4 times the heat threshhold of titanium! Top fuel race teams make as much **** out of Pyromet 51 as possible, but even they can't afford it most of the time!

Well, do you want alot of power, a more responsive car?



I know you were talking about a t04R and that isnt the most responsive turbo. You really got to pick your poisn and stick with it

Inconel handles heat but it's extremely heavy, so I can't see it being efficient. Wait untill the spool delay gets posted for that set (aka: lag).

I would much rather pay for heat coating on the wheels then inconel.
