USA turbo ?

How much boost are these turbos capable of and how do they perform, I've read that they flow more than the Garret BB. I've seen them called GDS, Phat shaft, and the USA turbo to help clarify

Tymar intake,ARP studs, comp 910s, DIY 238 hybrids with 200% nozzles, 6.0 intercooler, 3.5" downpipe to dual 4" stacks, CCV mod, IDM mod, DP tuner mod stock, 40t, 80e, 140r, fass 150/180, ITP regulated return, TE big oil, GTP38r turbo, lookin for 500 ponies

Re: USA turbo ?

From what I understand, they are a knock off version of the Turbonetics drop in.

I would go with Turbonetics. Spend the extra and get the ball bearing version if you do.

Re: USA turbo ?

And since the TN is a knock off of the 38R, might as well pony up for the real thing while you're at it.

Re: USA turbo ?

and since you're a :supergay::nutswinger: might as well get turbonetics twins.

to the OP: i believe the garrett may flow a hair more than the TN. i would go with the TN BB though.

Re: USA turbo ?

Because it flows a hair less and spools a hair slower. You don't wanna get these things too fast you know....

lol



To stay on topic...... that turbo is a pile of Sh#t IMO. Run the stocker or get something worth running. That turbo is neither.

Re: USA turbo ?

Bare in mind, that's just my opinion. You should consider all info you recieve, and make your choice based on that.

But that really is how I feel about it, lol.

Your right, the Garrett is a Pile of $hit... It surges, it stalls, it leaks and it has no warranty...

Do it right and get the Turbonetics turbo... There is a reason why there are fewer and fewer Garrett turbos being sold, because there is better out there now.
