    If I get the 67's I will always come up with "My turbo's can make more power, but my transmission would explode"

    ....


    Than the transmission explodes.

    @dzenno@ProTUNING Freaks at which one of these kits does an upgraded clutch become required assuming the car never sees a track or drag strip?

    move your honeymoons to tortola... I stayed at a wonderful cabana 10 steps from ocean... airfare plus resort was 3500 and was gorgous, u could leave resort, and travel to many local islands like virgin gorda, st john, anegada , st Thomas, etc rented a car and drove all over it was perfect, all said and done with eating like kings and just me drinking bc she pregnant it was all under 4500 didn't hold back one bit... maybe that can save you money lol

    Why? I just installed an aftermarket clutch and the drivetrain feels much more solid now, power is definitely being transferred better. I now know my stock clutch was slipping when I thought it wasn't and I'm only tune + meth.

    That is along the lines I'm thinking as well..still need to do some number crunching..

    One thing to keep in mind is this dyno you guys are looking at doesn't have some of the spool changes we've tested on the street which help spool...those will be incorporated with the next dyno session when we go down to California

    Car only has 6k miles on it and 3 years of warranty. Trying to balance $ spent vs. power added vs. closer to stock than not. Would love 450wtq from 3k to 7k rpms, to save the clutch.

    That's kinda misleading. The stock clutch has been known to handle over 450 torque. You could target that flat on these to 7000rpm and peak 600hp on the stock clutch, although you're leaving power on the table. If you drive it right it wouldn't even wear it any faster.

    Pulled the trigger and switched from stage 2's to stage 3's!!! Going for the gt28rs setup ,unless I change my mind. I'm pretty sure my 6at wouldn't want anymore power than those on pump. But they still leave me with headroom after a legit tranny upgrade comes along....(posted this a min ago in the 572hp thread thinking I was in this one oops)

    Lol! I got my stock clutch to clip on the dyno with stock turbos.

    IMO, clutch and LSD are a must before even going here.
    Change is constant

    550 BHP (crank) can be done on the Stage 2s easily & since they're offering RB like performance, you can expect to the OEM bits (6AT/Axles/etc) to hold together under the power

    "analysis paralysis"

    basically it should come down to two choices,

    the "disco potato" for the "road course" warriors or AT crew

    and the gtx 2867 for the drag strip "dyno queen" crew.

    I don't think i really agree with this. Sure, the bigger turbos will have more lag but as long as you are paying attention and keep it in the right gear it shouldn't be a big issue. If you've ever rode in a ~800whp car you'll quickly realise that any lag is quickly replaced by "HHOOOOOOOOLLLLLYYY SHIIIIIIIIIIIIIITTT!!!!"

    there's still no proof of the ST having faster spool than the 63r's...

    I just looked at the dynos showing that. Are you saying the spool could be enhanced a lot? How?

    Pricing looks a lot better than I was expecting. I'm not in a position to pull the trigger just yet (unfortunately) but this is definitely firmly on the radar now. Can't wait for there to be a solid automatic transmission upgrade.

    what dynos?

    the only apples to apples (ish) one showed identical spool

    the only single dyno showing faster spool was running waaaay more timing down low on meth and all sorts of shenanigans.. which equates to faster spool lol

    more aggressive tune = more power down low = more combustion event volume = faster spool.

    nope, the 'disco potato' (GT2860) is supposed to have slower spool than a GTX2860 by design, and the 2867 is supposedly barely slower than the 60, so... no.
