Wow, certainly not your typical location but certainly something I like. I assume they have some history in or around the ever growing OEM industry in northern AL to central TN.

Anyway, they are not too far from Decatur, AL which I travel to occasionally; Huntsville more often. And not too far from Barber in Birmingham!!!

Pretty much and only about 3 hours away. I know the roads that way and when heading through Rome, GA, can make for a very nice drive.

Anyway, we have many industrial customers in that area and know the region well. The south is rising.

Y upgrade this tiny snail? The td03 hot side is going to be the biggest restriction. What you need is new manifolds w/ aftermarket bolt-on options, ie:Garret, turbonetics, etc. Imo you would need some heavy porting to make a comp wheel swap efficient, let alone a turbine swap(if its even possible to port a turbo properly with the exhaust manifold attached to the turbine housing) MHI made these turbos to be responsive and efficient with the compressor housing and a light T series wheel. Altering the turbo would throw off this dynamic. There are a lot of if's but if it is possible i think a 16T and a Td04L would keep the low end response(as well as to be expected) and move the powerband to the right.

However it still wouldn't be as efficient at getting some equal length tubular 304SS manifolds with a couple of GT2860 series bolted to them. Or for that matter a single GT35 would do just fine as well.

ur missing the point....
we are not looking for a max effort set up. we want to retain the stock turbos for simplicity and reliabilty reasons. hey for the guy that wants to run procede V2 and a set of massage turbo, itll be awesome.
