BW is good stuff. That is just the base kit. You can get whatever you want really. AGP sells their own, PTE, etc. BWs are great turbos. Depending on what you want standard, or ball bearing. I think oil cooled, water cooled isn't needed. Electric scavenging is just different, not better or worst. As long as you use a good pump it works great. The new 911s just oil scavenging pumps and I believe this kit uses the same pump that Porsche uses so you know it is OEM level. I've never seen one fail.

You could add twins to your blower I know a cool shop that maybe doing that.

Are you working/worked for AGP? More info has come out of you than anyone else! I'm liking the way this kit looks...can't wait to see some results. I could easily sell the current headers on my 11' DD...

I use to work there in college. Some of my best friends own it. Now I'm just an engineer for medical devices. Moving down to Phoenix in a month.

That is awesome. Maybe you can answer this too! On the test car they had that made 680ish to the tire, did it run the stock stall? When was it at full boost? When did it start spooling? Max PSI?

Are the turbo's sized such that going up an incline at 70 would yield a few pounds of boost?

I own two turbo's cars, but they are both single turbo vehicles with stalls and have never driven a TT car before. Well, besides an ecoboost. lol

Stock stall. Only thing besides the turbo kit was a 3" exhaust. Full boost was ~1900, of course that depends on which gear/load. Starts spooling almost off idle. Any throttle would hit boost. Max psi depended on where it was set. They have an electronic boost controller. Most I saw was 10.5psi.

You could get different size housings if you wanted slower boost.

Great info. Didn't mean to hijack Matt's thread! If you have a dyno sheet of the car could you post or PM it to me?

I don't have it. I'm sure Kevin@AGP does somewhere. I know it made 740ft/lbs at ~3500rpms. Highway driving was a blast. I would say just as fun or more than my 900+rwhp z06. The torque just comes on so nicely. Plus the turbos make all sorts of cool noises.

That is an open ended question. Do you want 550rwhp or 1000rwhp? You wouldn't have to upgrade anything if you are going to keep it 600 or lower.

PM Matt for pricing and all that stuff. I don't sell this stuff, so I hope people aren't expecting PMs from me. From what I do know, it is very very close to magnacharger pricing, but think you also save cash from not needing headers/intakes/pulleys/etc so I think it actually beats maggie pricing if you want more than 500rwhp.

Shoot me PMs for any pricing...

We are in Houston this week tuning a lot of cars, so my reply times are delayed until we arrive back on Sunday!

Thanks
Matt
