best upgraded twins for $1700 budget

Tried to make a bottom ST from stock manifold after my turbos blew, didn't work out. Before I buy OEM replacements from FCPeuro what are the best options for twins under $1700? looking to make about 600whp if that's possible on this budget. also if anyone is interested in a brand new 6266 pm me.

RB might have some mild upgrades at that price.

RB Two Plusís, little bit more than $1700, but Rob offers discounts for paying cash and bundle options. Email him for the best price.

Pure 600s might be an option, have made the numbers you are looking at with supporting mods. Stage 2 hiflow if you have the coin.

Probably RB 1's - they probably won't go over 475 HP though.

You'd have to spend around $2350 on his RB 2 plus set up. I know he gives a discount of about $300.00, if you pay with cash. I think they are good for 575 hp

Why would the 1s only be good for that? Not good to quote inaccurate numbers.

Maybe at the wheels on pump. But you can wring 475 out of stock turbos, you'll get more max effort out of rb1

Lol okay. Yes it's on his website, but he also lists 400whp for stock turbos. So clearly, underrating.

Any stage 2, will get you in the 525whp on pump, providing your maintenance is on point. Adding fuel will only make that number rise.

Rob does underrate his turbos. He states you can make quite a bit more power with them, but these are the ranges he recommends for longevity.

Most turbo companies underrate their turbo for warranty reasons. They know a lot of people will push for that advertised whp limit
