Can anyone tell me some of the differences between a PT52 and the PT61? I am trying to decide on which turbo to go with but dont know any of the differences between the 2! I am aiming for approx 500rwhp. Any info or comparisons would be much appreciated.

Thankx

The PT61 has a 61mm GT series compressor wheel, and P-trim exhaust wheel.

The PT52 has a 60-1 compressor wheel, and a T350 exhaust wheel.

so if i were to run this turbo on a stock auto tranny, with a barebones kit...just enough to run a turbo....would it still be too much for the tranny. how low can you keep the boost? can you boost only to 5psi or so?

Just FYI guys, my SP built auto tranny and torque converter are for sale. I'm changing to a GM tranny. This trans still works flawlessly, converter stalls to ~3500 with the big turbo, 3800 with the SP63. It was $4100 for the pair new. Will sell for 1/2 of that.

It seems to vary a bit. I ran 12 psi on my stock auto for some time, but Kyle can't seem to run even 6psi on his without it slipping. I suppose the condition of the tranny is the culprit.
