BOHICA.

But I'll throw you a bone before we get another 10 page thread about why a 60-1 won't spool on an untouched 8v B230.

What Turbo are you running? What manifold, custom or a 90+? If custom, single entry or twinscroll?

It doesn't take much to get there but you need to leave the gate with all the right stuff.

Ask a better question (or questions) and give more detail.

If you are using a turbo with an internal wastgate, it will be sized appropriately. If you are using an external wastegate, it would depend on it's location, and your turbo/manifold setup. Also if you get the wrong size external gate, it should be an easy swap to a different gate with the same flange. Maybe you could search some other builds to see what people are running to achieve desired goals.

If you start threads, and do not reply to those threads with a resolution, you are a human analog of photobucket.
