All the numbers are 93 Except the last few pulls, 355whp 93 on a e blend with the same setup it made 368whp. Remember this is on the Base turbo option on our kit, changing from a cast wheel to a billet wheel will net even further gains.

Thank you for clarifying! Looking forward to placing my pre order on the 3rd.

Hell yeah Prl! Always coming in on top as always!;) Can’t wait to see what’s achievable with the new set up at the drag strip. :drive: Another solid kit.

Very interested in this. If the upgrade over the RS is not too pricey, it seems like a no brainier.
I think it will be significantly more expensive but likely still worth it for some. Regardless, awesome results from the “baseline” turbo option!

Should be interesting to see. If it's less than a $500 price increase, and it significantly reduces the turbo lag and/or increases the slope of the power curve at the top end, I'd definitely do it.

All that said, I'm admittedly wondering about our head gaskets. I'd imagine that with our tiny cylinders and the huge increase in air volumes, there might be a potential for problems down the toad from increased cylinder pressure. I'd love to get my hands on this now, but I'll probably wait to see how some of the early adopters do.

Wonder what the gains would be on 91 octane since that's all I can get around me

will the base turbo be too much power for the fx350 to handle? @PRL Motorsports
I'm obviously not PRL, but I will chime in. I think the 350 will be fine, take a look at the torque levels. This turbo gets rid of some of the borderline unwanted high torque ability from our stock turbos and trades it for lots of usable horsepower up top.

What part of OK are you in? If you have E85 near you, you can mix it to get 93 octane. On an empty tank, put in 2 gallons of E85, and the fill the rest of the way up with 91 100% gas. This will net you roughly 93.3 octane, and about 13% ethanol (we can handle up to about 15% ethanol with no problems).
