If stage 2 gives you 400whp than I wouldn't spend my money as this is close to fbo plus custom tune on stock turbo unless 400whp is untuned and without any other bolt ons.

stock twins power curve falls once in the upper rpm's. these upgraded turbos will still give you faster spool, bigger power power curve (although unsure until jp dynos his car), and upgraded wastegates.

on pump gas with stage 1 turbos I made 385awhp on a low reading mustang dyno (around 420-430awhp on a dynojet). so I would hope for/expect more than that with these new turbos

Meth gave me 60hp/tq over 93 alone. E85 was about the same gap from 93.

I was working back from your comment about being happy with 475 whp with meth, to which I deducted 50-75whp for non meth. So from your reaction, meth will surely get you over 500 whp...

not Vargas, I've been running other "stage 1" style turbos for a couple years. I posted the results long ago

Ah, my bad. I was about to say, v1 would be damn good at 385awhp on a mustang. Cheers.

Shop called earlier, they need a couple more parts that they hadn't anticipated. I'm having them do all sorts of random maintenance things while the car is under the knife, the parts are related to that. I should have my car back by Wednesday at the latest (depends on if the parts are in stock locally).

Can you post what parts you are referring to so we can all get a sense for what we may have to or want to do while its being done.
Thanks

I told them to basically fix anything they find, even if it's non-turbo-install-related. My car has a lot of miles on it now, so i'm using this install as a big overall maintenance type of thing as well - just so everything goes smoothly when i get the car back

I can't remember JP, are you a track guy? I know you will get the car on a dyno but any plans to hit the dragstrip this spring to see how the car runs after this overhaul?

Good luck with the updates, hopefully you get the car back sooner rather than later.

I know one of the things was a vac canisters: one of the nipples had a crack. Also something to do with the valve cover. Once I get the car back and know everything I'll do a full writeup. it sounds like they'll be done wednesday due to the parts not coming in today
