Postby Pharo » Mon Oct 21, 2019 2:23 pm

Hi all , thinking of an upgrading turbo for my GSR.

Im upgrading the fuel system to support flex tune also

I have seen some good numbers from these turbos online but im trying to compare to other turbos like gt pumps 712 or blouch 2.0. So i want people experiences/suggestions. Still hunting.

Not sure tbh with fuel lines, breif chat with my tuner and spoke about injectors and pump.

I told my tuner i wanted to upgrade turbo,manifold and cams and thinking about e85 afterwards but he suggested do it all at once as it turns out cheaper. But my main preference was turbo and other upgrades.

What do you suggest ?

Do what you can afford. If you have to do it in steps then do so. It's nice to have a ton of HP and a rocketship of a car, however the road speed limit still apply to us all.
If you go E85 the wiring to the pump will also need to be upgraded. The OEM wiring harness will let you down. You won't be able to get enough current/amp thru the wiring.
Have a chat to Merlin.Tuning@gmail.com and pick his brain

GTP712 probably the best turbo to run with an 18 or 22 psi Turbosmart actuator and ID1300 injectors with AEM300 fuel pump.
