    Its funny you ask that. Stage 1 has befallen the same wait as the stage 2's right now because we are waiting on the flappers to come in. Well a stage one pre order customer was in dire need and decided to forgo the upgraded SS flappers, and just run the risk of rattle in the future after we explained we could not guarantee they would not rattle without replacement. He understood so we built him a set and shipped them today. Since our Original stage 1 beta lost his car due to a WW meth kit fire. This customer has become out Stage 1 beta. We are hoping he gets them installed and tuned asap so we can see some numbers. I will keep you guys posted.

    @VargasTurboTech Tony, is it possible to convert these from journal bearing turbos to ball bearing turbos?

    Presumably because ball bearing turbos are more robust and are not susceptible to the oiling issues.

    However, they are larger and I strongly suspect that there is not enough space for them in Tony's application.

    Yes it was not for the spool, it was because they can withstand MUCH MUCH higher thrust loads and you would be able to run a oil restrictor essentially eliminating the oiling issues. This was why I was looking into it.

    I guess I meant for Stage 1/stock frame turbos. For a higher HP goal I could definitely see it.

    It would benefit stock turbos as much as bigger turbos. This is why I am offering the upgraded thrust option on stock and stage 1 turbos. Any turbo will benefit from increased thrust load resistance.
