Really? I cannot imagine such a thing. You hand a new turbo to Jonny Riceburner who slaps it on with no reguard to oiling specs and it blows as soon as the car starts up. That could bankrupt you pretty quick! Power to AUS if they can do that and not have turbo pricing go through the roof.

Bottom line for me on turbo spool-up is the RPM at 1.0bar boost. We see it at 2700rpm with the common K27-7200. With a J-pipe the 7200 spools to 1.0bar by 3100rpm. The supporting engine and exhaust work is what drives the last 400rpm down. Can any other turbo capable of supporting 375whp do significantly better than that AND last 100,000 miles?
If so I'm all ears.
