Revisiting single vs twins


Recommended Posts

Curious to know what others think of this data point, this is supposed to be a more modern twin turbo setup for the RB26 vs a GTX3582:

"More info Twins vs Single. 4WD mustang dyno, 92 octane, similar weather condtions, Step 2 V-Cam, 272 exhaust cam on both, both running metal cats.

Blue run are the DR500 twins
Orange run is GTX 35/82

Again this is just more info for everyone. Each of you will have your own opinions on what setup is better. Its coming to my attention that when we post up data, that we have collected, and speak highly of our results its because we are in love with what we do! Its unfortunate that it has come across as being competetive and that is not our intent. The information is there for you to use, only if it applies to what you want to accomplish with your GTR.

And yes we have watched the Motive video."

Looks like the turbos are made by Spectrum Motorsports in 42R configuration: https://www.spectrummotorsportssolutions.com/products/r32-r33-r34-rb26-smr600

Still alot of variables to affect results between 2 different vehicles. 

Shame it kind of wasn't a direct comparison on the same engine. 

Thanks for sharing ?

It's also a shame it's a shop comparing their turbos to others..........

 

Based on this post the extra 5psi on their twins gained nothing up top https://m.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=3537861622909572&id=136477713047997&set=a.1284279384934485&refid=13&__tn__=%2B%3Dp...

The man is on the hunt for data! Lol

Its very hard to believe unfortunately as my experience driving the whole garden variety of twins on literally every capacity engine has been VERY different to what these guys are pushing

I've been wondering how they've been doing it too, they tend to get results that others don't.

they are selling twins.....

 

 

above is my amazing work overlaying the 2 graphs. it seems pretty pointless but i did it!!

 

I dont think a shop positng photos of a dyno monitor is really providing data. Heaps more info is needed for proper comparison otherwise it is alll just lines on a page.

oh and for that crazy work above i matched the powev figure and x axis (sort of), the boost axis didnt match but doesnt really matter.

 

 

DATA!

They also posted a twins with V-Cam off and the gtx with V-cam on and they were almost identical... seems fishy... perhaps the gtx cars v-cam if fooked?

It doesn't look like they are testing each turbo to their potential.

Both are tested at 25 PSI, where as they should run whatever boost is required for the specific turbo to make all it's power it can, that might effect the midrange somewhat.

Tuned by the marketing team maybe?

kind of irrelevant when they're not claiming the twins produce more power, just that the power is on earlier and so more enjoyable to drive

Which is a dumb comparison. A smaller single will do that. Their own data seems to show that their twins are all in a that power, extra 4 or 5 psi made no difference to peak. Give the gtx35 an extra 5 psi and see what happens....

Not a great comparison point because it's VCAM step 2 vs step 1 but they did have an EFR7163 VCAM step 1 comparison:

image.thumb.png.d6d54eebc5b243489589e2bd718aa8cf.png

"The Black run is a Step 2 V-Cam with a GTX 35/82
The Blue run is a Step 1 V-Cam with a EFR 7163
The Orange run is NON V-Cam with our DR500s


These runs were all done in 4wd with 92 octane in similar weather conditions. I tried to grab an average run from each turbo setup as not be to be misleading."

Also seems like people like the G25-660 for big power which is surprising to me:

    • So….. I’ve replaced all the coils and made sure I have a spark by fitting a spark plug to one of the new coils and cranking the engine. I’ve ensured I have fuel by removing what I assume is the ‘return to tank’ fuel line and cranking the engine. So I have a spark and fuel and the car still won’t run. Any ideas? may be time to get an auto electrician out! 
    • EFI Solutions aka Taarks have a great kit just for that. Better to have facts/data before making a decision. https://www.efisolutions.com.au/exhaust-pressure-sensor-pulse-damper-emap
    • I'm not sure why you removed the sound deadener???  Don't bother with DIY remedies... this is how you can do it properly. For the lightly stained areas, just stick to a fine grade wet sand paper....and then paint over once the stain is gone. For the worst areas...especially the pitted ones...you just need to sand the rust in the localised spot working down from a heavier grit to medium grit wet sandpaper, which will get most of the rust off. It's just localised rust from the spare wheel touching the boot. Don't go to town on sanding the whole boot...not needed! Try to avoid sanding the seam sealer etc (obviously) After the rust spots are down to bare metal - use a fine brush dipped in "RUST DEOXIDISER"...and carefully apply this to the little rust areas. It's important the chemical you use is DEOXIDISER. After applying that, let it sit for a while and obviously wipe off with prepsol before it dries, and repeat 3-4 times. If you go to a panel shop they will probably be able to sell you some - as the trade products are a shitload stronger than retail products. After deoxidising the rust, scuff the surrounding paint with red scotch brite....& then you are ready to apply etch primer and then paint the matte gray colour on. Mask up the surrounding area using tape & paper..... as you don't need to paint the whole boot, just blend it in and keep the repair as small as possible. Spray can paint or spray gun depending on your level of expertise will be fine. Probably will cost you about $100-$150 in materials.  
    • Interesting. The 30/900 looks right on paper but weather it gives me enough headroom is the question. I dont have a pressure sensor in the exhaust manifold so I won't know if I have a restriction unfortunately.
    • It depends if your current turbine is a restriction or not, if it is go up to the 35, it’s it’s not then stick the 30. Also the g30 turbine wheel will flow more then your gt30 one either way you go the compressor wheel is going walk away from your current turbo
