So you are saying that CVTs have broken on the dyno when tuned past some torque limit? :) Nope!

Back to the turbo discussion. :p
Looks like we'll never know lol @Myx

Link to TD04 ball bearing? I mean is there any point in upgrading to such a large drop in turbo when there wouldn't be enough airflow to push it? I would think you would need to upgrade the turbo inlet pipe to provide more airflow whether it'll be 27Won's or PRL Inlet or even a custom one.
Lol, cams and a bigger displacement is how you get to spool a bigger turbo like that. An inlet pipe isn’t going to do much in terms of spooling a much bigger turbo

Wanna bet? 27Won's Inlet Pipe will spool a TD04 much easier than a stock si TIP. I mean 27Won did say they are an increase of 17 g/s of flow with W1 turbo and W1 Inlet.

and they still never gave a definitive answer. Just saying. You’re assuming a product that just came out will spool a turbo spec’d for a bigger motor. Meanwhile the folks who made it don’t even know for certain.

If Vincent the owner says it should then it will. I mean they already tested it. If they saw an increase in airflow over stock and W1 turbo. That means a turbo like a TD04 which the Type R has will as well.

Lol okay. Maybe I should have said the inlet pipe Isn’t going to help as much as cams and a bigger displacement. Have you messaged everyone who makes stuff for the 10 th gen?
Pretty much. People want proof and data rather than having questions like yourself.

Of course lol but you also did say an upgraded inlet wouldn't do much to increase spool.

Or making assumptions like yourself lol
How am I making assumptions? It's true and the data is on the 27Won website had you cared to look yourself.
