Where are you from, man?Hi, also planning a turbo upgrade in the near future and still waiting (2months now) for prl to ship their fmic and a catted dp. Already installed prl cai with race maf, typer retrofit clutch from eman and some minor mods from acuity tanabe etc... currently running tsp1... bit jerky on start but great stft/ltft and k.control
I still think it's too thick. Some user here got oil pressure sensor problems with 5w30n on stock configuration. Perhaps a good 0w30 could be enough?Now that I am done with the bolt-ons, I am also looking for a drop-in turbo.
I am doing something like 30000km a year, I commute 100km a day for work and go on roadtrips on my vacation. All branded aftermarket parts are high quality and reliable but I havent read about anyone who puts a lot of km on their car with an upgraded turbo.
I almost bought the MHI drop-in when I first saw it but then the 10w-40 oil viscocity put me off. I do not understand with such a thick oil is necessary when the Type-R runs a TD04 on 0w-20. Yes, different engines but the turbo temperatures are comparable. I do honestly believe that if you do frequent oil changes, such a thick oil isnt mandatory. I run Mobil 1 ESP 0w-30 and I guess that switching to 5w-30 should be fine for turbo longevity.
The W1 is a great choice but I have no idea how reliable they are after say 150000km. 27WON also suggests 5w-30 which makes perfect sense.
Question is, W1 or MHI running on 5w-30?....
You could buy the flywheel only and get the clutch kit locally! I will PM you about this, I am interested!Yes, purchased it from imwtuned, Derek Robinson was really helpful, communication rated 5*, managed to slightly bypass the customs total price approx 1700-1800€ for the clutch+customs( cant remember the exact price) + 300€ for the install.
And yes it is really that good as others say, stock feel, no chatter and holds the power
