  1. .92s seem to get better response on a 2.6L, so I don't know if the 1.05 is doing it right tbh Mick
  2. Thanks to everyone who took some time to respond. I'm currently leaning towards an 8374 .92 with it's gate welded shut and a downpipe solution that will allow me to change to a 1.05 by adding a small extender later. I'll report back when it all goes down. Cheers
  3. Yeah they do look pretty good for what they are, but I'd rather avoid all the boost control issues with IWG. If I'm going through this whole 'upgrade from low mount twins' exercise (ecu/balancer/crank trigger/manifold/turbo/lines/downpipe/etc) it seems wasteful to not do EWG, gates and the piping fabrication at the same time, rather than have to do it all again when I go stroker in the future.
  4. I'd love to see some data, bit thin on the ground I've seen the results you got with your IWG .92, looks solid. Unsure about 1.05 rear of the EWG
  5. Re the Precisions- .84 or 1.05 a/r ?
  6. I'm not at all surprised at your response Yeah 98 for now. E85 sometime in the future.. Good advice thanks mate. I did read your EFR thread comments about the 7670 Haha I'm sure that's exactly how it goes. I have been considering it for sure. Just wondering if I'm better off with the 7670 for a boost in response now, (and live with reduced total power) then moving to an 8374 when i eventually go 2.8.
  7. Where do these fit in the Garrett pecking order? Better than GTX? different?
  8. Thanks for pointing that out Lithium. I averaged that figure from anecdotal comments, from the EFR threads here and elsewhere. Can I ask about your experience or knowledge of cars with either 7670s or 8374s on stock capacity RBs? , you seem to be fairly involved with car dev in NZ
  9. Yeah sorry, didn't really make it clear I'm not running E85- fuel system upgrade is another phase for the future. My N1s would be similar to 7s I guess, so I could live with similar performance. From the EFR threads I read several positive comments re pre-spool transient response
  10. Hi SAU, happy NY to you all. I'm looking into a power upgrade for my 32gtr, educating myself on options. I've done a fair bit of reading on SAU and elsewhere, and now I'm hoping to get some advice about turbo selection from experienced folk here. Currently running: Mild 2.6L with forged pistons and rods, fresh mild ported head, oem cams, adj. cam gears, JUN oil pump, extended sump, oem cold side, N1 turbos. With supporting mods this is good for a modest 281kw at the wheels on 98. Goal: 380-400kw at the wheels, with a nice wide torque band and response that is no worse than current, and preferably better. This is a regularly driven street car that will see the odd squirt here and there, cheeky track days etc. Some considerations: I think I'd rather go EWG and get the manifold + wg + bov stuff done, in preparation for an engine refresh inc stroker upgrade in future. Some of the thoughts/suggestions so far: EFR7670 ewg 1.05 - highly responsive but limited to around 350-360kw on 2.6Ls? EFR8374 ewg 1.05 - good power but better suited to 2.8L? GTX3576R GEN II 1.06 Thanks in advance!

    Yes forgot to include that, 32 GTR
  12. The bushes on my Noltec FUCAs are looking pretty mangled. I'm thinking that if the GKtech (currently $296) are superior, perhaps I should get a set rather than replace the Noltec bushes with a set from whiteline (~$160). Thoughts? Are the Noltecs worth keeping?
  13. shodan

    Well this is very helpful, now I know where to get a replacement set for my Noltecs. Cheers! SAU is a gold mine sometimes...
  14. Need some semi-decent tyres for vic rwc- got any to offload?

    No longer required, found one.
