    If the sensor connections were swapped the car would throw codes right away when you start it up. Do you get these 2 codes immediately or under certain driving conditions?

    You sure it's not caused by parameters in the com port settings ?

    2x 6258s and 1 downpipe and you're already approaching the price of existing stage 3s. Then you've got install/fabrication costs, manifold, brackets, custom oil and water lines, some sort of inlet/ filter, custom outlets and the list goes on. Not to mention space constraints... You really sure you want to place that bet lol

    A Mustang GT making 775 rear wheel horsepower on E85 courtesy of a Procharger at 14 psi is nothing to take lightly. Unless you happen to have an Arrow 9.0 liter stroked Gen V Dodge Viper V10 that also has upgraded heads and an aftermarket camshaft. The Viper is just brutal. It just takes off instantly and that is what you get with 9.0 liters of American muscle. A Procharger just will not offer that same instant throttle response and builds its torque toward redline. Just incredible how quick this naturally aspirated Viper is. The Viper is on NT05R tires and also has American Racing Headers, an underdrive pulley, and a titanium catback exhaust.

    Ok but will this fit in the same space? Regarding stuffing cartridges into housings they weren't meant to go into isn't that where they make they most of their money? Why would it be in their interest to stop doing this or providing a better alternative?

    The thing is...nothing you have mentioned is that big of a deal. Every platform that I can think of has to deal with pretty much these same issues. The biggest reason that I would want to go this route is that you will not be relying on some small company to properly stuff a cartridge into a housing they werent meant to go in. Not to mention, running two BW EFR 6258 would be beastly, they have almost insta-spool. Also, the turbo incorporates a "bov" and very good wastegates so no more having to worry about wastegate rattles, surging from improper bov setups, etc. I am willing to bet money that you could produce something and have a price point that is very close to cost of some of the existing "stage 3" turbos or single turbos.

    Last year as part of our alignment with industry standards we queried for all of the overseas cast wastegate offerings to offer as a "base" wastegate upgrade offering. This was a necessary cost cutting measure as our internal wastegates are 100% CNC'd out of USA high quality high heat anti-wear matched stainless steels which is NOT a cheap process even on our own equipment as it takes a lot of machine time. Anyway we found three offerings at that time and ordered them all and then categorized them to overall design including wastegate lever bushing to interface rod length and width along with clearance specs between all of the moving parts. The end result was that this wastegate solution was our least favorite while the first and second were very close to one another. This wastegate solution is not the version of wastegates any of competitors have used to the best of my knowledge, alongside this we have gotten several of them back installed in cores worn very badly over a short period of time (many are buying them as a DIY "fix" on Ebay). Ultimately the units we selected were still not up to our acceptance levels so we still make our own custom Bushing and Flapper to tighten up the clearances to what we feel are more ideal. Since the bushing and flapper are solely lathe operations and we are "only" using USA SS304, this isn't TOO costly of an addition and we feel it is for the best when it comes to WG longevity so we do it. So in short even the best units needed some help. Agree that an actual true Stage 3 Twin setup (ie. CP-e Atmosphere, VTT Stage 3) is going to be costly. However based on todays standards of stages- a setup like that should be considered maybe 4, 5, or 6... we are certain more of these options may come in time but the costs will never be what most consumers would hope.

    Yes, I believe that most of this has been resolved. Just waiting for BT cable specifics, it will decrease the read/write speed to almost a few min...

    Pretty good performance here although we expect more out of the car based on some acceleration videos posted. A 12.3 @ 115 in the 1/4 mile is respectable but this was done during the summer and the vehicle should be capable of breaking into the 11's with the all wheel drive. The owner mentioned a shifting issue: Maybe the quickest way to get it down the strip is to hit the shifts manually? We'll get a better idea as more owners take delivery but it is odd to hear about a shifting issue like this that was not present in the video linked in the beginning of the article.

    I'd presume because it would likely require: 1. New oil and water lines 2. New Inlets 3. New outlets 4. New downpipes Before someone gets their panties in a twist on the inlets and outlets because there are aftermarket versions - they all fit stock or hybrids - it's not an aftermarket "only" affair. Same with outlets - the silicone outlets fit both stock and hybrids - so a much larger market exists. The exhaust is probably the big sticking point though - all of these aftermarket castings retain the stock downpipe style, thus allowing use of aftermarket stock frame downpipes. Plus, how big do you want to go? Once you reach a certain point, you will impact spool, and you'd be better off with a single. I could be wrong (lord knows it wouldn't be the first time) but I think the key reason the hybrid twins spool so much faster is that they are what people in the "old days" would call "properly sized". Too many people slap on a 900+ HP capable single turbo and jump up and down when they make 650 whp. Sorry - your turbo is sized wrong. It started when the Honda guys would strap an SC61 to a 1.8L and run 10 psi. Did it make good power? Sure - but that turbo isn't even INTO its efficiency island at that low of a PR. MMPs are a 19T compressor in the stock turbine, and let's say GCs are a full TD04-19T turbo (maybe even larger?). The TD04-19T flows 550-600cfm, so 38 - 40lb/min. Two of them is 80lb/min - so 800whp. What did VTT make? 850ish maxed out? -Properly sized turbos...

    Shipping, taxes, duty, not being able to find bits. It's not ideal. Plus if something is problematic you can be up shit creek.

    Are they the "same" as the GCs though? The Zage website only lists a 15T compressor wheel, and I think the GC Lites are a 16T. VTT doesn't have any specific info on their page as to the GCs (or I missed it). While everyone is so hung up on the turbine housing and what the metallurgy is, I'd rather know the details and differences in the CHRA that each vendor uses.

    I guess I thought they were pairing some big aftermarket twins. I'm not sure what the deal is.
