Vgt

Can anyone tell me why a vgt turbo can't run higher boost numbers and keep up on the topend to clean up 190's or bigger?

Re: Vgt

Because vgt chargers are pos and are designed for a stock performance guy to have minimal lag, not performance orientaed. They did what they were designed for. Quick spool up to have a better torque band for a nearly stock truck while cruising or towing. Powermax's aren't worth the money guys spend on them. They make what a whole 10hp more. That's a lot of money for a upgrade
