I've just seen a lot of guys posting up 40 numbers what would lead one to believe that it's an extremely capable turbo compared to the 52 on a stock fuel system, so I thought I'd ask for individual's thoughts and experiences, rather than focus on the numbers. That's all.
And thanks NRW, I searched a bit and never came across a comparison on the same dyno. The 52 is on stock injectors, correct?
My point was just that hp numbers are deceiving.. there may be guys with 40s putting down 52 numbers, but I'm not sure you can expect reliability..
Why push a small turbo so hard when you can push another turbo to the same power level without stressing it?
