Re: advice on turbos

depending on miles etc Id be tempted to play it safe and swap like for like,
when you add in the remap costs for the gains IMO its a bit of a stretch.

Re: advice on turbos

I'm wanting low end power around 3100rpm and quick spool but not dying off to much high end. I'm heading more towards a vf23.

Re: advice on turbos

sc32 is prob about right then, based on a td04, anything bigger will push the spool up higher.
