The ETR and the VWR units are both made by turbotechnics. I wonder whether they are actually identical, or maybe the fact that they are offered each paired with a specific tune means they are not. In all cases the vwr is quite a strong unit when paired with its dedicated software or a custom tune. A few cars local to me are running it and it sits just below the tte525 with a better spool

No, the turbo is fine.

Still the possibility of a boost leak.

Interesting info. So the VWR being clipped will have a slower spool than the ETR. Our local tuning shop reported that the VWR spools even better than the TTE470. The ETR must then be a great choice for a daily driver!

Littco do you have any idea how the L450 compares to the VWR, ETR or TTE470 in terms of spool and power? If it spools quicker and is good for 450bhp on conservative boost I might bite the bullet on this one!

It will make 400whp on 28psi on pump gas. It spools fine for a daily. I bet if you ask Hoon nicely he will sell you his.

Soon... going to lean on it a bit first, I'm just way behind because I'm chasing bullshit wastegate issues and oil leaks (from the engine not the turbo).
