Single Turbo? Opinions wanted! UPDATE!!!!

I currently have Rbs and they run great but Ive got the itch...ohoh! So thinking of going vff700 as I can get a decent deal on one. My rbs are putting down 503whp 526tq on 18psi 100% e85 NO METH. So my question is if I do the same with 6262 will my numbers be higher......I am looking to be in the 570-590 range? What do you single turbo guys think or anyone with some knowledge for that matter......lol thanks

Running E85 you will quickly run into fueling issues.

A big difference is you won't need e85. We are doing well over 500 whp on 93 octane alone. I recommend holding off a little though. The game is about to change Unmatched spool is just the beginning...hehe

What did your 500whp dyno baseline at. We have a full custom low pressure system with a fuel cell and sump tank with return line and can't run the e95 blend we use to 500whp without taxing the HPFP.

I'd go with the 6466 over the 62mm. more gain little to none sacrifice. You're goal could be hit with pump 93 alone and a 66mm from the vff900 kit. Full tq happens around 3800-4300

Booo why can't you drive a 1er...your rear turbo won't fit my car


I certainly hope you'll be documenting your single build. Bottom mount?

Hey Guys just to be fair I will go down the list as I was contacted!

JDBRETZ is up first as he contacted me when I was unsure of what I was going to do.
