i have the Garrett G42-1200 on mine. it also has a speed sensor but at my level i dont think i would gain much from the data at this point

Is that a 3 bolt turbo? Where did you order it from? What size turbo is that? Journal or ball bearing? Thanks
Had Reed build it for me to replace my old school 45A GTQ,

3 bolt journal .85, forged milled compressor wheel w/extended tip technology
titanium aluminide turbine (half the weight of inconel materials that others use)
90+lb/min

Yes thats what Reed says, i can run the same size turbine as the gtq and spool way quicker plus flows 100lbs more
should be exciting for you!when i run a billet 69mm paying attention to the the ex side showed alot of gains

Did you use a block off plate like this for these turbos?

Billet wheels are generally heavier than cast. You can see where tnetics shaved down the hub for improved airflow for their billet wheel. Run this turbo with .82 tnetics and love it
love the tnetics stuff.they make big power,very underated.

Im converting the car to e85 at the same time as the turbo so it should be a different animal.
might be,as long as your setting up the car without useing the e85 as a spoolup crutch, should be a nice ride.

Well i tested quite a few turbos on this set up and i like the way the gt-q hits up top the best, its a little slow at part throttle on the street but when your in it it hits like a freight train- hold on or die acceleration , figuring the new turbo tech + e85+ an aftermarket management system it will change things at half throttle on the street a lot and still bust 140mph through the traps.

Anyone care to give a quick power comparison of Turbonetics vs PTE?

PTE 58/58 = ???
PTE 62/62 = ???
PTE 67/66 = ???
PTE 68/70 = ???

what it does on a buick? or by the rating?by the ratings is hard as the turbo companies get them in different ways.also there size difference in comp wheels,some sizes are the same but most are not.
