Hi,



Im redoing my car completely starting with the engine and now the turbo system



1 of my friend works at a shop and can get me a Kit or I should say a break on this system that includes a t70 turbo charger with a .96 turbine housing a custom racing manifold and a an external turbonetics evolution wastegate.



I have read and researched many turbo-turbo kits but haven't come across this particular turbo for our engines... anyone care to shed some light on this



thanks

Jeremy

the turbonetics t-70 is pretty big. you would be better off with a 60-1. and go with the ceramic bb option. that will help you spool up about 15% faster than traditional shaft bearing. when I ordered my turbo from them they wern't making manifolds for rx-7s.. If they do now I don't know. the 60-1 will be more streetable.

T-70 is a high boost turbo BTW.

I wonder how it compares to other big turbo's..especially the gt kits 35,40,42 or even the t-78...t-88 turbo's...the price he quoted me was 1300 for the turbo wastegate and manifold..I've checked the price on the t-70 and its almost 900 by itself...it has the 360 degree thrust bearing...decisions..





what you guy think?

from what you describe the turbo is going to have lots of lag..I'd ask him for the 60-1 in bb. and that turbo is for high boost..and lots of rpms it just depends on what your looking for.

the t70 is between a t78 and a t88. spool is like a t78 if you get the bb option. the bb turbo is like $1800 by itself.

I kicked down the hot side of my T66 from 0.96 to 0.81. It's much more fun on the street and not so explosive. Still has great top-end.

I've driven a few cars with T70's, one ball bearing and the other not. Both turbos spooled fast in my opinion. Both cars also had different manifolds.



I think the T70 spools just as fast as my T78 if not faster. I also once had a T72 installed on my car and took it off. I was getting full boost by 6000+ rpms.

What about a turbonetics t-62-1 with the BB option and a Fuso FMIC?



Horsepower capabilities and full boost reached at approx. what RPM?
