List of turbos by size/flow
How hard would it be to create a list of available/popular turbos by their size and flow with another column for required mounting hardware, another for the amount of fuel they will be able to use, another with the potential HP of said turbo, then ideal applications, then random notes, and then "price"? Or really any combination of information that would be helpful to anyone searching for a turbo for their application.
Turbo | Size | Flow | Fuel | Mount | MAX HP | Applications | Notes | Price
Stock | Small? | xxxCFM | Too small for stock | Stock | 350 | Stock | Worst option, works for some | Stock
Stock w/WW | Small | xxxCFM | Great for stock | Stock | 375 | Better Towing | Cheap upgrade, bargain results | $200
D66 | Slightly Larger than Stock | xxxCFM | Great for stock | Stock E99 | 375 | All Around Performance increase | Only bolt-in option for early 99s | $XXX
GTP38R | Good beginner turbo | xxxCFM | Stock up to 238/80s | Stock | 450-500 | Great for Street/Strip, Improved Towing | Bang for buck, best/only option for stock pedistal | $1200
Stock H2E | xxmm/xxmm | xxxCFM | Stock up to 250/80s | H2E Mounting Kit | 550 | Great for Street/Strip, Improved Towing | Upgradeable, you need to buy and expensive kit to run a $500 turbo | $500 turbo, $1200 mounting kit
Modified H2E | ...
There are probably a dozen or so very popular and highly recommended turbos so this list wouldn't get too out of control. Each thread ends up the same way...
What are your HP expectations?
What do you do with the truck?
Do you have other upgrades in your future?
How much are you looking to spend?
How much weight do you pull?
Run it w/o a wastegate... put a gate on it, put this wheel on this turbo... etc...
I only mention it because I was about to make another "What turbo would work best for me?" thread, and I was looking for similar threads with people who have similar modifications as me. If I had a single reference point, it would be easier to make assumptions based on the generic information available in a thread like this. I'd even volunteer to maintain such a list.
I'd go so far as to add links to vendors who offer those turbos, and any and all available information for those specific turbos, MAPs and wheel and housing options as well. People could post what they know in the thread and I could just add it to the original post... or modify a spreadsheet or something. I know information like this can all be scrutinized and everyone has their opinions but I'm not looking to make a "turbo bible", just a cheat sheet for noobs or a quick place for experienced enthusiasts to point other noobs too.
If this type of thing is already available for mass consumption, can someone point me in the right direction?
