    Careful now, very careful. If anyone is not aware 90% of the steam line up is simply rebranded Zage units if you do not believe me I can easily prove it. The N55 they are testing is nothing more than the JB version of the EXACT same turbo we have an exclusive one which is the BB version. Meaning we have DIRECT, and intimate knowledge of this product. This is our first time working with Zage again after the wheel debacle, and it honestly has not been much better. The N55 as it comes from them, has a problem, that they did literally nothing to solve it for us. We have worked on our own, and solved it. Every N55 unit we get from them is completely disassembled and undertakes a 3-hour procedure to make it usable. Also, they tried to sell us their own branded BB CHRA's we polietely said thanks, but no thanks. We ONLY use genuine Garrett CHRA's in the units we sell, and any BB unit we ever sell has genuine Garrett BB parts in it. We have found ANY aftermarket Garrett BB CHRA's, or Ball Bearing rebuild kits to be completely hit or miss. Sometimes they wont even balance out on the high speed, and you have to toss them in the trash. We tried a few brands and ALWAYS come back to Genuine Garrett. So if whoever is posting for Steam really wants to challenge that I know nothing about the unit they are selling. He can go ahead, but I will disprove in very quickly, and easily. They do not have the BB version because we have the exclusive on them. Again something I can easily prove. This offering is the ONLY VTT offering that is not cast by us directly, which is why our logos are not cast into the housings. ANY I MEAN ANY turbo manufacturer that states they are manufacturing turbos, and do not have a logo DIRECTLY cast into the housings is lying. They are simply buying ready-made parts, and adding their name to them. This includes Laser, CNC logo, etc, etc. YOU DO NOT EVER go through the trouble of casting a product and not having your logo cast into them. In this day, and age of copy cat everything, this ensures the product you paid to have designed, and molds opened for, etc, is at least more difficult to rip off. As for the turbo shown in this post. I can promise you they will not get it working if they install it as it came from Zage, and my guess is they are emailing Zage right after reading this to ask them what we are doing, well we purposely did not share it with Zage, we simply asked for a discount on the units, and we fix it ourselves. Either way, good luck deflecting that we know nothing about the Zage unit you are testing/selling, and saying we know nothing about...

    Hey, guys. It has been a while since we posted. Yes, we are in the middle of testing and validation of all new N55 turbos, so we aren't a doing full announcement quite yet. I would like to point out, that Tony doesn't work with us on any turbo products, so Tony doesn't have any direct knowledge as to our products, process, or manufacturing. Any thing he says in this post is just a guess on his part, and should be considered as FUD or misinformation. His goal here is to cast his competitors in a negative light so that his products seem better. Therefore, taken anything he says about our products with a huge grain of salt. That should go without saying, but I hope that people are not tricked by his misinformation.

    Note drop in geometric CR to 9.3. Single cooling system now instead of stratified on B58. Anyone know in which vehicle the B58B30TU engine (upon which the S58B30T0 is based) is installed?

    Got to love claims. Over 10 years now in this platform and have seen at least 10 turbo vendors appear with tons of those claims, most every one tends to fade out once customers start to put together the pieces within some few'ish number of years. Most of these guys just read what others are doing, attempt or claim to do the same thing (or usually "do it better" somehow with less experience/equipment/knowledge); but ultimately still do a half ass job to cut costs as cheaper price tags and big claims is what's most important to garner consumer attention to make the quick sales. While the years will weed them out, a new sprout always seems to pop up right in their place. With that here is your new blossom, do with it as you will. Rob

    Well nowadays the internet is flushed with "ebay" and "chinese" turbos, a potential customer doesn't know the difference anymore... Also some big turbo builder don't give away the full specs of components so it's very hard to fully compare full units... On their site (dynamicautowerx) they at least say they are fully balanced, but hey also ebay/china turbos claim they are balanced. KEY FEATURES TD04L 9 Blade Ultra Flow Inconel Turbine Wheel (30% More Blade Surface Area Than The 11 & 12 Blade Wheel) 17.5T 6x6 Billet Compressor Wheel With Extended Tip Technology Oem Wastegate Actuators with Updated Thicker Rod, Billet End Link & Upgraded Billet Wastegate Pivot Arm Assembly Upgraded Dual Oil Port Thrust Assembly Machined From Copper Bar Upgraded Thrust Collar & Spacer (14mm vs 10mm) Component Balanced, Dynamic Balanced Than Vsr Balanced Using a State Of The Art Balancing Machine, Avg 0.5mg Or Less Upgraded Staggered Turbine Rings Upgraded 2" Compressor Cover Inlets (2" Silicone Inlets Required) No Cores Needed Tune Required! 3 Year Limited Warranty For me it's just finding the difference to spend 1k on full chinese or around 2k for let's say half chinese a difficult one to judge if you don't know the FULL turbo characteristics and components...

    Faulty PCV's can generate a lot of stupid issues (including giant clouds of smoke). I however also had oil consumption (1L/2000km) and i thought this was relative to the smoking. When i went RB external, the smoking stopped, however the oil consumption didn't. I still have a light smoke on some occasions, but this is only when the car is cold and i have no kitty's. At this point most people hope it's still something in the PCV (or something else), but it's pretty obvious my turbo's needed replacing. 80k miles on them and running pretty hard on them, it's a good opportunity for me to upgrade to PS2's ;) Good luck

    A very interesting comparison here by Magnuson of three Eaton TVS based superchargers on the C6 Corvette Z06 LT4 motor. The motor comes from the factory with a small TVS1740 blower and you get to see on 91 octane pump fuel just how much more power the bigger blowers provide. Bigger is not always better but in this case with the TVS blowers on the LT4 it happens to be and shows GM made a mistake with the tiny TVS1740. If you look down low in the rev range the superchargers offer similar torque but the difference in flow capability really shows as the motor is revved out and the bigger blowers can supply more air to the motor: The TVS2650 is just the way to go for the LT4 and now you know why the LT5 comes from the factory with it. The TVS2650 with a retune and higher boost thanks to methanol injection managed to easily eclipse 800 horsepower to the wheels still on the same 91 octane pump fuel: Magnuson feels the TVS2650 is good for roughly 1200 rear wheel horsepower which one could argue is even mathematically conservative on the LT4 platform. Magnuson goes into further details in the video below:

    Have a Gen 5 direct injected small block V8 from General Motors? Need direct injection fuel injectors capable of higher flow? Well, Xtreme-DI just announced they have injectors for the LT1, LT4, LT5, L86, and L83 V8's that are capable of 45% more flow than stock. Announcement: This is great for those upgrading their direct injection fuel system and fuel pumps to be capable of handling far more fuel than factory injectors can flow. XDI again delivers an aftermarket solution for those with modern direct fuel injection system.
