Kinugawa Turbine housing
Any thoughts, I wouldn't run one of their full turbos but looking to see if anyone has seen how their turbine housings are. Looking for something smaller than I currently have.

What do you currently have? I can tell you from experience their 8cm2 TD05 / TD06 housing actually measures to about 8.5cm2! The 7cm2 one works very well.

I have a 20g td06/8cm kinugawa turbo. This turbo is amazing. Why wouldn't you run one of their turbos?

Here is my side by side comparison of vf40 and kinugawa 20g

Currently running an avo 420. Didn't mind the lag till I drove my friends wrx with a vf39. We had our cars tuned on the same day, I made 317hp/312tq and he made 305hp/350tq both at 19psi. I'm not hitting peak tq till around 4500rpm like most other people with the avo 420.

So you lose 1,000rpm in spool to him and about 35wtq. Ouch.
You're looking at the Kinugawa housings for the GT28RS? I don't see one in their range that has a Subaru style flange, only T25/Silvia types.

Tell me about it, I'd be livid if I had bought it new for full price. I could have sworn I saw a subaru fitment one on there the other day, I emailed them yesterday to see. I've seen some on eBay but I'll buck up for the avo380 housing before going that route. Almost wonder if I should just run the pdx330 I had picked up from praedet.

Personally I'm not a fan of the small 16G compressor housings the PDX uses, but hell, anything will do better in the midrange than that AVO420. Note that AVO has upgraded / updated the exhaust housing on the 380 not once, not twice, but THREE times. Be careful when shopping for those. ;)
Of course ATP has a Subaru flange housing for the GT28RS, but I kinda doubt they sell them separately.

Yea Atp doesn't sell them separately.

Just heard back from Kinugawa, they said they should have them available around the end of the month.

Cool. In what nozzle area or A/R?

system60 03-20-2013 11:07 AM

Didn't specify, but I was leaning towards the 8cm till I reread your post about it being a bit bigger than the avg 8cm.
