it only makes 303hp to the wheels with a 2.5XTR? something isn't right....

Nice car man!

Must be a very conservative tune maybe? Cause I made 303hp 331tq on the stock turbo.

It's still on stock injectors and wastegate pressure. Customers turbo we tossed around some ideas of going another stock unit, FP, etc.; and it was decided to put the 2.5xt on now, and in the future he would think about upgrading injectors if he wanted more power. This is a very well maintained vehicle and in April of last year we performend the timing belt and water pump service with the gates racing kit.

OP buy some injectors and take it to chad to work his magic.;)

Welcome Jim!

That turbo is the newer version of mine. It'll give you a solid base with lots of room to grow.

Nice spool up - What was the WG base? The 9psi base option? if so, that little sucker is actually impressive 3650/3700 for +9 is nice for a turbo that "could" push 61lb/min given the right supporting mods - 44mm EWG, and solid quality headers, no big tube stuff, it kills spool.


If your easy shooting for 380-425 WHP this sorta looks like the way I'd think.

OP- Nice car man! grab some ID1000's do the DIY parallel rail conversion, and retune for some SERIOUS fungasim. (I made that last word up, just now)
