Thanks

Yes i like the turbo, is a great piece, barely no lag, just about like stock turbos, and makes incredible power, its pretty much the one of the cheapest Turbo kits available in the market right now, i drive all around town and everywhere with that turbo... :)

Jesus - I respect the huge #'s you put down, however - I had a T88 and would bet that the T78 isn't that much different. Basically, there is NO WAY a T78 spools anywhere near the stock twins. While a T78 may hit hard at 4k or less - the time it takes a big T-78/88 to get up to those rpms is substantial. Very apparent when racing...

Jay: So you are doubting about my honest opinion ? you can see my dyno sheet anytime in the MKIV site, on my car i have full boost around 4,400 rpms, if you see basically when you have stock twins and full power its around 4,000-4,500 rpms. T 88 is a HUGE difference from a T 78, the T 88 flows 23% more air than the T 78, bottom line is the T 78 is perfect for the street anyday anytime. :)

My car is a 6spd, however im thinking of getting an auto, and installing a T 78 as well, i would use a 4K stall converter. :)

No...I'm with you on your full boost at 4400rpm - my point was that the stock twins can get to 4400rpms, much faster than a T78 can. It's not a question of when full boost hits....just how long it takes to get to the same # of rpms!

Either way....I agree that the T78 is proven turbo. Good luck on your new T78/Automatic Supra!!
