I had bought a stock exhaust housing or adapter or whatever you call it, without the butterfly. It is a garret piece. I planned on installing this and the ats housing that I have. But then I thought about bean's exhaust housing. Aside from lowering egt, what benefit will this provide? I have been told it will reduce drive pressure. But forgive my ignorance, but I am not sure what that will actually do for me. THanks

Mine helped egt's, slightly, and pulled a little harder on the top.

Helped surge a little, but it still chatters pretty bad.

I have a banks 1.0 with no EBPV

With both the EPBV delete and the 1.0 exhaust housing you have about the best set up for the stock turbo, the ATS housing just adds to the perfection... But... and here is the hard part...

You have about $800 bucks into the stock turbo that is STILL only rated for 25# boost... so for about $400 more you could have a drop in TN that can handle 40+#'s of boost, will not surge and can be rebuilt by any turbo shop for a few hundred...

And the reason I mention this is that is what I did... I bought a WW, then a ATS housing, then a Turbomaster wastegate contoler, then a 1.00 exhaust housing....

And guess what... I still ended up spending $1500 for a drop in replacement turbo...

ok, and again forgive my ignorance, don't you need some bigger dog fuel to run a bigger turbo? I really do not plan on going much more aggressive with my tuning. Big oil may be in the cards down the line, but I won't be going to injectors. I also have a 6spd and my understanding is that some of the aftermarket turbos can be laggy on the bottom, which would be bad for me.
But going back to the housing, will there be any seat of the pants difference? Thanks

No you can run it on stock fuel with no issues. i did for a good long while. the .84 TN is the best choice if you never plan on adding injectors.

What performance advantage will the tn provide over the stock with an ats housing? I hardly ever push my current turbo to 22 -24 psi. So I don't need to go to 40. I am not sure what benefit I would see from the tn replacement. Sorry for all the questions. My knowledge of how turbos really work is fairly limited, so I cannot really problem solve this myself. Thanks

If your not going to push much harder then just get the ATS housing and be done... But if you think at some point the HP bug will bite you then stop wasteing money on the stocker and jump up a bit!

Sounds like a good plan. I think I will skip the exhaust housing. Thanks
