Turbo up grade

When up grading a stock turbo... do you up grade turbine housing or exhaust side ?

Re: Turbo up grade

Either way... You can upgrade intake side for surge control, or exhaust side for surge control, lower drive pressures, lower egts, and better spool characteristics.

Re: Turbo up grade

I've got a ported shroud housing, wicked wheel, turbomaster wastegate and a 1.0 exhaust housing on my stock turbo. I should've saved all that money and put it twords a 38r, H2e or QSSB set up.

Re: Turbo up grade

Turbomaster question....Is it worth it?

It can be reused with the 38R...I have to remove the turbo and plan on a non-epbv pedistal...figured I add a turbomaster to the mix (both re-usable if/when a turbo comes along).

Anything more then that, go with a 38r... D66... H2e or like...
