Re: Whats all wrong with this turbo setup?

Uh... from my limited knowledge of turbos... The wastegate spring is set for 7psi.

So.. I THINK that means your max boost would be 7psi.

Not a whole lot.

"Race" turbos usually run 15+ Psi.

Plus, the connectors look cheap, like any sort of pressure would tear it apart.

The Intercooler is rated for 400hp... but up to 30psi? STRANGE.

Anything aluminum is 15-20 more hp, cause its lightweight and such. Seriously... its trash do not buy this.

Re: Whats all wrong with this turbo setup?

Those turbos are hit and miss... not a name brand at all and several have failed after very little use. Have a turbo fail and get ready to rebuild the engine - most of the time they fail to the point you end up with metal fragments in your combustion chamber, not a good thing.

The whole engrish part is kinda sketchy as well. If they can't spell it they can't sell it.

Haha.

Is it bad that I'm reading this in a room full of asian students and secretly laughing at all of them?
