Hi All,

I have a new turbo going in the car today, and will be posting my experience with tuning, driveability, and performance results in this thread.

Tuning will be via Eurodyne Maestro, courtesy of Frank Mabo.

Performance measurements will be provided via Dragy.

Driveability... just my opinions.

I'll answer any questions, but keep in mind I am just a consumer. Ed @ EQT has an account on here, so I would expect him to chime in at some point.

Here is a link to EQT's turbo:

Thanks for your attention - looking forward to sharing some results!

I'll be keeping up with this thread. Trying to narrow down between EQT, Tomioka, or IS38F. Let us know how it goes, we're looking forward to it.

Ed would have to answer that.

I made it home on the new turbo... So far so good. There is more lag than the is38, but not a ton. Might be able to work it out with tuning.

More to come...

I'll assume this uses an upgraded bearing, but did they use a larger diameter shaft like the Tomioka as well? I will be ordering a turbo upgrade in a week or 2 and this puts another player in the game. Damn you.
