Yes Sir!



All BETA units have the upgraded bearings.

Thanks just saw it. For some reason I saw 393hp not 29

All BETA units have upgraded bearings. Only the first prototypes did not and those will be swapped out as needed.
Good to know!

Don’t worry I was also testing a BETA turbo. Remember I said it was only on the car for a few days.

Everyone has the upgraded bearings. Unless you got your turbo back in June and it has prototype stamped on it.

Good question. They generally are beneficial but what size to use? A t25 or t28?
I would go with ceramic coat and the stock heat shield. We saw IAT increases from just a blanket and no heat shield on the FK8s.

@Rott3n_SI how do you like the turbo? Did you have the W1 previously?
I like it so far first opportunity to tune is in January so I gotta wait a few weeks kinda bummed but it is what it is. Yeah I had the W1 can’t really compare much cuz I’m still on a base map for the rv6 but rn peak boost is only 24 psi but when it hits that turbo sounds like it’s moving mad air lol once I get tuned I’ll let y’all know I might switch to an etune just to get it tuned sooner

Awesome, can't wait to hear. I don't think I'll have mine installed until mid January, then will e-tune.
