Turbo Selection poll/thoughts 450-500hp

Post by tacokiller07 » Thu Apr 04, 2013 8:53 am

Hello everybody! This is my first post and im hoping i dont get flamed right off the bat lol. I was kinda wanting everyones opinion on a couple turbos so its more of a poll. I am currently putting together parts for a build and am looking at a couple turbos for sale, I want to make around 450-500 whp and just want to know which turbo from the choices below you would choose. These are my choices right now based on the price and me being poor :cry:

The choices are:

Big Holset H1C
Holset Hx35w-8 blade
Precision PTB 5031e (.50cold .63 hot)
Turbonetics T3 60 trim (waiting on AR specs)

this is not a flame.

your broke.... maybe try 300whp? its a lot more fun having and using a mild setup than dreaming/saving/parts hording for a high hp build. also, this is one of those questions where if you have to ask.... well you know. reliable 450-500whp setup $5k+

thanks for the input, i did think about that also but basically all i need now to finish this off is the turbo, injectors, clutch and ecu managment so i figured id try and go for it. ive bought and horded most parts already lol.

Yea...

You'd probably have to shoot corn to reach those numbers reliably w/those turbos.

u got all forged internals, head work, cams intake mani etc? def required. still lots to spend though. say u get this turbo for 300
ecu 700-1600 (MS to AEM)
500whp clutch, $500+
stock pile of ka transmissions $XXX
fire hose injectors $600+

u could tone it down and get a similar turbo (maybe smaller hy35), a white bunny clutch $250, some sti injectors $200 and a nismotronic ecu $500

I would recommend either an Rb25 or a z32 trans too. The life of the stock KA trans hangs in an uneasy balance in that whp range. I suppose it depends how it is driven too. If it is not abused (like droppin clutch and shift lockin through corners) and power is applied gently from a roll, one could possibly have decent luck with the stock trans.

I would maybe check out limits for axels, driveshaft and diff, If you haven't already.

Just a side note: 280whp in an s chassis car feels pretty quick; all about that power to weight ratio!

I voted for precision cuz I love there turbos but a budget and 500whp don't go in the same sentence. Get a turbo that'll give you room to grow like a 6262 boost 7psi and next year try 14psi with a better build after aWhile 500whp gets boring.

what sdaigle said.and there is a big financial difference between 300whp and 500whp.if u want reliability...

one of the holsets w do it though.should be around 300whp @ 15psi and 350whp @ 20.hx35 is good for 30 psi at least.

but ya id change ur goals strickly becuz u said the word poor.poor and hotrod doesnt go together idc w anybody says.

He'll probably blow the motor, and then join the army of retards who hate on KA's for no good reason.
