Our main goal of the R660 RED was to develop a robust and reliable turbocharger. First step to this was ditching the stock sized TD04 format. The TD04 design is popular amongst OE turbochargers for its small compact size and quick response. However trying to squeeze more than 400HP from such a small turbo is difficult to do reliably and comes at the cost of shortened life. In order to achieve our goals we needed to over build and upsize everything.

We built the R660 around a TD05 bearing housing. The TD05 bearing housing is about twice the size of the TD04. This allowed us to use a full sized 8mm ceramic ball bearing for quick spool and increased thrust loads. In order to keep everything cool and reliable. We oversized the coolant passages and used -10AN coolant lines ample cooling.

With a larger TD05 bearing housing we were able to implement a turbine housing with an A/R of 0.81. This significantly reduces the amount of back pressure between the turbo and engine. The solve many issues with unstable boost and overheating.

We are currently looking for BETA testers. Please send us a email with your setup if interested.

More info to come.

@QuasarMotors this might be the opportunity you were looking for, prime beta tester.
I ended up turning it down. Car is going to be under all winter and with track season here ending I don't have much ability to BETA test. Looks like a very promising turbo and hope to hear great feedback from others.

Here are some time slips and dyno from @redstarmotoring. They have been testing and beating on our turbo all summer.

redstarmotoring

For months we been testing the @rv6p Drop in turbo for the FK8 in @batistaman 2021 Type R. It has FBO and with 100octn fuel and Meth it made 562whp and 434tq, right after that we went to the track in the 1/4 mile and made 11.1@129mph using slicks!
