    Driftmotion 6465 turbo kit

    Hi guys. I may end up ditching the 6262 setup over the summer and head towards driftmotions 6465 turbo kit for the 7mgte. I'm wondering what your guys opinions are on this particular turbo and what sort of spool time I would be expecting from this setup. It's a nice kit because it comes with a external wastegate, manifold, downpipe, turbo, oil lines, intake for a pretty good price for a complete bolt on kit. Only thing I'm concerned about is what sort of performance I should expect from this turbo in terms of power and most importantly streetability. In other words, when will this turbo kick me in the ass lol. Thank you

    what 6262 do you have? Precision?

    It concerns me that you would get rid of a Precision turbo for a gone through china turbo.

    Those kits look shiny but do not posses the same quality as, well quality components.

    You get what you pay for.


    To answer your question though, a 6465 with the right setup can produce a hefty number. Easily 700+


    Personally I'd shy away from a 'Kit' and piece together a quality setup. It will be well worth it.

    Honestly I want to try something new. I tried putting together a system where I was going to try to mate it to a t4 manifold with an adaptor. But in the long run it would seem complex and not very cost effective. I want an external wastegate in the end and pushing 25psi on the factory gate is very inconsistent and it doesn't hold boost well often. And I don't want to destroy the 6262 turbo by welding the gate shut or anything. So I think it would be better to sell it and go with a t4 setup. Who knows I may keep it, just trying to get people's opinions here before I make a life changing decision

    I doubt you'd gain much with the 6465. I understand you're limited with the wastegate issue but why not just get another manifold? Then you can change your AR if you wanted 700 hp. Or unless it's a REALLY old 6262. Doesn't make much sense to me

    Yes the precision 6262 should flow the same as the 6465 DM kit. I don't even know if there was ever a good high powered supra on the DM turbo. Most I ever see out of these kits are people running 300-450 HP because they generally don't have the money for the rest of the supporting mods. When they do they get better turbos.

    What 6262 has an internal gate?

    Are you talking about a bolt on Sp61GT or basically one of the ones that use the stock ct26 exhaust housing bolt patterns?

    Yes it's a bolt on turbo like the sp61gt

    Can't be said enough.

    If your turbo is a precision CHRA you should be able to bolt a standard T4 turbine housing on and run your turbo on a T4 flanged manifold. I recommend buying a well built and designed manifold instead of a chinese manifold that's been tweeked to fit properly.

    SP Racing will still make a manifold for the 7M I believe, and Doc Race makes a twin scroll manifold that's also very high quality. Either manifold would be the last manifold you'd have to buy.

    that kit is basically a bunch of ebay parts. i'm not completely against them i'm running a ebay exhaust mani, ic, and ic piping that have worked great the past 5 years. when i first put my setup together i tried that exact same hks replica wastegate because its what the 2jzge manifold was flanged for. it literally leaked after driving like 2 miles lol. sounded like there was a hole in the exhaust. swapped it for a tial mvr44 and have had great boost control since! turbos, wastegates, clutches, ect ebay usually will disappoint you. the intercoolers, radiators, ic, some exhaust stuff, ect have better success rates.

    your turbo is worth more than a new journal bearing pt6266 you could sell it get that an mvr44 and ebay mani that will be a solid set up if you don't want to shell out the money for a more highend mani right off the bat.

    i too have gad great luck with "Ebay" radiators, IC, and turbo manifold i have been running all three for years now.

    as far as the turbo, have you looked into Borg warner turbos? they start out very very affordable with the s300 lineup and their SX-E series is on sale from THMotosports right now for under 650.
    they have a similar turbo (6473). the sx-e would need an exhaust housing of your choice purchased separately.

    what are you power goals? even the 6268 (s362sxe) ive had great luck with, it really comes to life after 20psi! it comes on hard at 4400rpm and pulls atll the way to redline.

    Thanks man. I will stick to the 6262 for now then. I found someone that is able to make a custom wastegate that doesn't open. It's like a wastegate actuator but it doesn't have a spring inside. It's just a solid piece that's adjustable to make it so it can be closed tightly shut with no play. So maybe I'll find a way to mate the 62 to a t4 manifold and a vband downpipe.

    On your 6262 turbo, do you have the higher psi wastegate actuator?

    Also your are talking about the Sound Performance bolt on 6262 Precision Turbo correct? There is a bolt on v-band adapter plate for it for about $100 if you are looking to change the exhaust down pipe.
