Well .. its just 15 hours of flights probably

The first thing is that keeping the same setup means backing up 20-30 hp to keep the turbo safe from overspeed section of the map. And the next thing is that it should be at the 450 whp section to be worthy of the time and money spent on it IMO. I am sure it has at least 100 more without bumping into other limits (especially transmission). Of course 330 hp would not be bad, can get you sideways on many gears out of 5 ... but i am greedy :P

These GTX series turbos are amazing indeed, and even more the new GTX29 series. However they seem to be very early to use, Garrett does not even have a performance map for them .. and they are not even included in their catalog !!

Interesting note on the manifold, the throttle body could also be a problem (thought of it as well). I wonder, how far has anyone gone with this intake manifold ?
