A T78 doesn't spool quite as bad as PHR's graph.. but not as good as Jesus' graph either. Remember Jesus and Angel like to dyno in 5th which helps their spool by a good 3-400 RPM's....

i agree.. but the power curve looks the same.. PHR makes it look like the t78 makes power for 100 rpm...
looks like a marketing ploy to me.

One reason, In my opinion, I wouldn't buy an SP turbo kit, over HKS, HKS products have the highest quality workmanship.

You can as long as you get a "V" band welded on the downpipe of the T04R turbo, and then of course you'd have to do the same to the T04R turbo too. Unless it's an option or it has changed, the T04R kit comes with a "4 bolt" flange mating the turbo to the downpipe. The SP turbo kit is a "V" band style.

i thought the Quality of the SP kit was top notch.. but personaly i will end up going Greddy owing to cost.. $3800 VS 5400ish for the SP kit.

As a reminder, the SP kit includes a full length DP. With the Greddy kit you will need to purchase the HKS or Blitz or similar midpipe for about $170-190.
The SP kit comes with the ceramic coatings included. To have my Greddy kit cereamic coated I just paid $500.
The SP kit includes the HKS Racing Type 2 BOV which MVP sells for $427, plus I believe the SP kit comes with a flange welded in place to accomodate the BOV . So if you can't weld your own flange on you can add that cost to the Greddy kit as well.

Re: Re: Re: which turbo spools quicker greddy t78 or hks to4r

really?
is that why SP warrantys there turbos for one year and hks how long ?????(read below)
Turbochargers and wastegates, which are warranted for one hundred twenty (120) days from original purchase.

hks warranty =2months guess they dont stand behind there highest quality & workmanship that much ;)

thats why i went with an sp turbo great warranty !

And dont forget a polished turbo compressor housing, powder coated IC piping, and K&N filters for the breather and IAC motor.

The HKS racing BOV is $500 retail!! not 200. Then add for the flange and welding. Dont forget ceramic coating, polishing, and all the little filters. Its not fair to say 4200 vs 5400 unless you are comparing the same things. That is like saying a corolla is $100,000 less than a Mercedes but they both get you from point A to point B

No doubt it sounds like a great deal.

I can understand that there are alot of American tuners making up "their own" kits because HK$ customer service has sucked for so long. HK$ Japan doesnt seem to be interested in the american market. Shit, HK$ USA wont even sponsor my site... what does that tell you. Sounds to me like the SP kit is just a bunch of HK$ parts anyways..... but you get stateside support =)

What kind of manifold do you use with your kits Larry?

I would like to note that with a simple adapter I can fit a t51r on my to4r kit =)
Lets just hope that the new HK$ USA website is the first step to better their services to the American market.

I love the performance of HK$ but it seems to me that SP has a great product and customer support, I hope to see more SP Supra's as members on my site.

take care,
nils
