Mid frame 67mm-to 70mm turbos are nicest for a pure streeter. And in this day and age im sure you can make enough power to run low 9's with something in that range easily

I actually would think you can run high 8s' with someone as smart as Justin in your corner with a turbo that size, if that was your overall goal , and still be a fun streeter

Daz is on the money, they're a lot more forgiving too. Ie - you can get away with a slightly larger plenum, or a lower stall, or no headwork, or a glide and it's still streetable. But if you go a large turbo, large plenum, large stall.. it's a hard combo to get right, and then it's likely to be pretty laggy too.

My corolla runs a $500 China GT42, been pushing over 20psi for about 18 months and about 28psi for past 12 months, still good so far lol....




I have a Proboost 42R for the VL, It did do a few passes on a mates 8 sec Gemini and (obviously) is still good

Pity grant at proboost only does the gtx3582 and t04z, be great if he could build the Z he does but with a GT37 turbine and not a old P trim, be a great budget turbo.
Id buy one in a second if it was around his current turbo prices
cheers

Never heard of a GTW38

Is that bigger than a GT35, and what does the W mean?

Caught up in garrets marketing hey? The larger gtw are just a old t04z style
Center sections by the looks. T04z p trim turbine..which dates back to the 70's

Just a fancy t04z..950hp is absolute fairy tales for this turbo.
as for latest tech..pure marketing there. Theyd use a new turbine
And design a different style comp wheel if it was" latest tech"

Proboost is a old p trim..with a gtx copy 67mm front wheel
Those comp wheels are proven for 850hp ish.And are a new design with extended tips..
Be closer then you think
id use neither.
Cheers

Something with a turbine not trapped in the 70's

GTx4088/ Pt6466-6870 /Borg warner sxe 69
be a few hybrids around the joint id try aswell

Honestly Garrett can go **** themselves over selling **** covered with chocalate witht the large gtw 38 range ..what a mob of ****s..


Noticed how you dont see any reviews on them..been out a while..americans see the p trim rear and run..lots of lag there, big heavy outdated turbine,
the p trim was the bread and butter turbine for them on a 6cyl ...20 yrs ago..lol
cheers

Hi, nice car - thanks for sharing.

Was this the car that sat on car sales for a while (maybe 3-4 years ago)?

Cheers
