Stage 2 should be mine after new years!! Super excited for this.

Gotta give props to vargas for being so professional and being actually up to date, in which almost no1 is nowadays.

Stage 3 looks amazing. Those might hold a candle to a 6262 on higher boost levels. Reminds me of the b5 s4's out there with bi gt28rs. If it could in any way fit, bi gt2871's would smoke the current single options.....

Tony,

Will the stage 2's and 3's come with the whole WG assembly or just flapper/arm? I want a bolt-on option!

Thx

These are GTX2863's and are rated to about 425 HP each. A GT28171R is only rated to 400HP each. So these turbos flow more than a GT2871R and spool quicker. The best thing about this series is you keep the same outside package but have 3-4 options for wheels which give you a choice of being rated at 600 HP with instant spool, all the way up to 950 HP with about the same spool as a 2871R (claimed). I will be offering all 4 options with the kit at different prices. Check out ATPturbo.com its a good site to compare the different turbos Garrett offers as well as Garretts site.

stage 1 and 2 are. Stage 2 is comparable to the likes of RB turbos where the turbine is also upgraded and not just clipped. along with upgraded wg flapper/rod.

stage 3 are fully upgraded disco potatoes, if you will. they require new manifolds etc.

this year is going to be epic for the n54 platform. and i know it's probably just rubbing salt in the wound, but HPF still, after almost 4 years (maybe even or more, correct me if i'm wrong), still can't produce a working single. if only there was a face palm of the year award...

I did bother reading about stage 1 as well that I believe you didn't. Tony says they are ready and available i.e. not in development and I'm interested in if they have been dynoed already.

Having stg 2 or 3 ready this quick is impossible.
