Well its finally coming to looing into a turbo upgrade. Love the loo of twins but not the stories of lag I'm a speed racer baby from light to light for me. So I wanna stay as far from theb ottle as I can I'm aware of all the trics and mods to lower lag not ap roblem what it comes down to me is the turbos themselves. Notice turbos heh. Looing into a twin setup for street the 3037 to big and crazy for street, 2835 is nice but a bit laggy from my readings and usually needs some help. Well as I have been looing I found again the Blitz K3T which is based on a KKK turbo. They are rated at like 400hp each. A twin setup would probably be nice for the street to play around with. I was quoted 500-700 based on engine tuning and other goodies by Blitz-NA. So what do you guys think of the K3T's? Have any advice, info, and or experiences?

ps - they have a K5C that's a little larger, thinking bout maybe that too. And the K3T is basically the size of a T3 or T4 turbo I was told.

thanks guys ;)

Man you've got to do a lot of looking around to find the people who know how to install the blitz shit. R&D for that isnt the biggest in the states, because it's all done mostly for the j-spec Supras and what not. At least so I've heard. And I've also heard they're generally bigger, and thus laggier, than the HKS setups.

So, you're better off with the 2835's. If you have a stick, you can always "drive around" the lag, and they'd be easier to install, since people know how to do such, and THUS, more cost effective as well.

But still expensive! To be honest, you're probably better off with a single. It's up to you entirely.

I would have wuoted you Tyrantb ut the forums are screwed up.

Yea I get what your saying, but it's only $5,700 for the K3T Supra Twin kit while the HKS kit is $8k+. Oh and to put something to rest, there is no custom modifications needed to install this kit that aren't needed or supplied with other parts for the cars. The kit consists of manifold/wastegate/turbos and other accessories. It doesn't include intake or IC piping and other various things like the upper DP or mid-pipe. With alll that said I would believe it to be cheaper than an HKS kit in the end being most other parts would have included with other purchases for my car.

As for the lag I was told the K3T Turbos are the size of about a T3 to a T4. The K5C is probably the competition for the 2835's. Reason I'm bothering you guys for info on this is it's a smaller twin kit that makes good power for street supposidly. Problem is there are no numbers here to go on. Blitz is scarce in the us :(

I tried to answer all the questions up above. Not much work needed but definetly a good shop. This kit is really different than all the others just a bit better I bet. We need someone to break into the twin setups with someothing new and low spooling. Plus look at it like this, they use the K3T (KKK Turbo) on the MR2's that make sick power with proper tuning. So why not slap two on a dawg and see where that get's ya. Built motor, fuel, and all the goodies, plus high revs and expect some low spool time with a twin K3T setup I'm sure you'll see 600hp, with the nice twin polished chrome babies under the hood flying from like to light :eek:

One other thing

Just a side comment, there is a white civi that has a K3T single on a Honda B20B that makes 364rwhp at only 12 psi (to the wheels).


Best run was 11.9

Another thing (sorry)

lol this must look bad, me keep posting on my own thread. BUT!

I found some more info, not sure which KKK turbos RUF uses on their RUF CTR but it makes 520bhp. Also the RUF CTR Sport makes 55bhp I would guess then from what this link says.

http://user.tninet.se/~bjx414c/ruf.htm

The stock turbos are replaced with the well known KKK turbos and double bigger intercoolers. Different race camshafts and a new 3" exhaust is being placed in the middle of the car (nice!). You could also choose the four wheel drive as an option when you order a CTR, highly recommended! It would be impossible to get all the 520 BHP to the ground without it...
Now that the new 996 model is out I bet Ruf is sitting in his living room, trying to figure out how he is going to make the 996 to a even faster car than the 993. The name of the new one is: DTR...

I've heard KKK makes ALL of Blitz's turbos. As Garrett does for HKS.

And I'm 80% sure the K3T is even with the 2835's. I dont remember them being very small at all man.

Well what's the size of the 2835 compared to the 73 or t4? Blitz told me the K3T turbo is about the size of a T3 and T4 Turbo. And that it is smaller than the 2835, makes less power and is meant for the street. You must be thinking of the K5C, but if anyone knows size feel free, I just am saying what I was told.

2835's are pretty laggy I heard, but I was lucky to have been hooked up with 2835 r's. I think they're like 500 more than the 2835's each.
I lined up with a BPU and he got the first jump with the stock turbos, I was glad I was just at his bumper, so he wasn't that far ahead, but by 3rd gear I should've been pulling but I couldn't shift right. On the highways, I haven't been beaten yet.
This could be because I'm really not used to racing, the car isn't tuned yet, and not to mention the horrible feel for the HKS triple disc.

Well I knew that, but thanks. With that being said now I've been looking into other HKS turbos smaller ones. So far I've found stats on:

2530
2535
2540
2540R
2835R

Do you or anyone else know any other turbos and their max hp levels?

See HKS is a good name and they make quality stuff, but I'm still looking for something with less lag and less top end more off the line performance. A good mix of both would be great and ideas welcomed.
