Anyone running a VGT Turbo?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I have been reading threads regarding members turbo choices, and there are plenty. However, most of these threads are a decade old. It seems like there have been major advancements in turbo R&D since then.  

 I've recently been recommended a GTX3067R which is advertised near my goal, but I'm told that the efficiency map doesn't support the claim. Interpreting the map is something I've not quite grasped. Considering a goal of 500hp max with the option to detune for daily driver efficiency. 

 

 VGT systems seem to be a versatile option.

So, I failed to add the one thread I found on here regarding the VGT system. The member who posted it says it blew his motor twice. I guess there is something to be said for simplicity. 

 

Just wanted to take this time to thank you all for your input.
