How much boost?

Thanks and great job!
You can upgrade, but there are more pieces than just the turbos that need to be changed...

I know you will use most of the same cold side but all of the hot side will change.

Long story short, upgrade is possible.

I think it was 9 psi, but Jeff would know better than me. I haven't been up to the shop for a couple of days.

Thanks Mark! I appreciate it. I wonder how hard the "entry level" turbos could be pushed before being out of their effeciency range.

I know you would need to change the charge pipe, but I'd guess it would work with a ZL1 as well...

I know Jeff would be better to answer that question though.

Correct. Boost peaked at 9.x and was in the 8.x - 9 range where it made peak-power.

Correct again. The kit wouldn't go on "As-is" obviously but could be made to work if you wanted to keep the blower in place. Since we just made 998rwhp on a TT GT500 that still had the stock blower I can tell you the blower proves to be a restriction pretty quickly but if you aren't shooting for 4-digit numbers at the wheels it can be worked-around.

How far below the frame do the turbos sit? Are there clearance issues, I wanted to lower my car but after looking at the pictures I think I would hit the turbos.

We have the original kit on quite a few lowered cars running around. Since the skid plate is the lowest point it will not change even though these turbos will have more room between them and the plate. In other words, actually driving over something and physically hurting the turbos is an extreme long-shot.

I will post up a few pics from underneath before we start taking this kit off for the GT35's.

What's the efficiency range for these turbos? Is there a graph available?
