So I would keep my K24s and go to a different compressor wheel/shaft assembly? I was thinking that even though there is nothing wrong with my current K24s, they are 15 years old and may benefit from being 'upgraded' to more current technology. I am not crazy about the idea of changing all kinds of components on the car (I have other cars that I constantly tinker with...), but I am a biog fan of predictive maintenance, so this 'update' is of interest to reach my power goals of 550 - 575hp. The car is currently mapped with a Cobb unit, stage 1, and I was planning on using the GT2RS intercoolers, a 1.0 bar wastegate and a 5 bar FPR... very conservative, I do believe.
