Your best bet is to contact Rob Beck. Email him.

He is usually quick to respond so hopefully he will get back to you. Here is some more info for you from another forum. This post is over a year old so stats are obviously different.


TD03's-

RB OEMs: 10T cast compressor. Basically OEM turbos that will make OEM power (ie. sub 425whp). Production began 10/2016. Over 110 sets sold including the DIY CHRA kits. 0% failure rate since intro.

RB OEM Billets: 10T billet compressor. Basically OEM turbos with a billet compressor to make a tiny bit more power, hardly worth mentioning but not much cost increase either so worth it to some. Production began 10/2016. Approximately 20 sets sold including the DIY CHRA kits. 0% failure rate since intro.

RB Ones: 14T billet compressor. Basically the next real power improvement that is significant enough to mention. Carries power/boost to redline. Stage 1+ setup. Recommend for 425-475whp. Have seen them make 518whp to date at 22psi. Production began 2/2017. Approximately 45 sets sold since intro and one unit returned to customer/installer error.

RB Twos: 15T billet compressor. Basically the normal Stage 2 setup used across the world by most vendors. In beta test with 6 sets sold since 10/2017 with a 0% failure rate to date. Recommended for 475-525whp, we are sure will make significantly more. Planned for production in the next few months if all remains 0% failure rate. Have seen go 11.0 ET thus far. Extreme budget/performance setup at a sub $2,000 price point.

I'd prob go RB 1's. The less the turbos have to work to get to that power level the better off the turbo will be for the long run. You'd probably be pushing the oem billets kind of hard to run 430-460 so that will shorten the life of them.
