We recently used a GT35R with T04 turbine on an ultra simple, budget-build 964 engine. Stock cams, stock heads, stock exhaust manifolds -- not even B&B headers -- and a huge muffler. Kind of a "Ruf RCT" style layout.

450hp/460tq to the wheels at only 0.9bar boost on 91-octane pump gas.

Really drivable, despite crummy exhaust manifolds.
Silly fast spool up. All done by 6,000rpm, no need to rev it way up.

The client also asked for a "high boost" setting for when he runs 100-oct on the track.
522.3hp @ 5,169rpm / 549.4tq @ 4,831rpm -- Dynapack chassis dyno, 1.2bar
Not bad for a budget setup.

An absolute ball to throw around on the street, and a terror on the track.
wOW, I like that. What made you go with the T4 exhaust? I was thinking of a T3 .81 housing GT35 for my stock 3.3 motor. The K27 just aint cutting it anymore, got 370rwhp out of it but I want 400rwhp without having to run a bunch of boost.
