Some of the more modern turbos can do this no problem. The issue is adapting them to our cars. Or Vitesse can throw something together from what I have heard.

Yea Vittese could do it the question is for how much, below is the turbo cyclone got, for the price and once rebuild it should be under $ 600.00 which I believe to be a great price for a T04 with a #8 hot side

In the real world 4100rpm is insane! Smart cars are gonna pull three car lengths on you! Just saying!

If you spend any time below 4100, you're not driving it right.

The turbo is a great deal but unless you have a high reving engine with a 7K+ redline, it will be tricky to manage all that hp/tq coming on at once. Let's say you shift at redline every time, you'd still only have approx. 2.5K of usable power band so it's definitely peaky- good on a dyno for sure and for hwy.

I think the low comp 2.5 would be the issue. Hi comp or big motor maybe not?

Just so I put it out there I'm not even in the slightest unhappy with my purchase honestly it's a steal, the replica 8# hotside by itself is worth almost what I paid. I will be rebuilding it, I just figure if I should change the compressor wheel or not. I just want to make sure I have it the way I want it because I know it takes a good 6+ hours to change a turbo in these cars. The goal for my car is 325whp which I honestly believe this turbo can produce.
