Are you absolutely sure about this? I am going to hold you to this.
i htink @LilToTo17 is right actually. lol. but do let us know your findings when and if you find a si turbo + inlet. didn't think the inlet would be slightly different either

Oh..ok. Ya'll are talking about the Si turbo inlet itself. Got it! I was talking about the Si turbocharger itself vs the Non-Si turbocharger. The inlets are fairly cheap brand new ($100) so used, it should be able to be gotten for much cheaper. So...was just reaching out for one as well.

BTW: I've had several offers in Facebook and am finalizing a deal on one of them this afternoon. Thanks everyone/anyone that has reached out to me here in PMs and such. It's been appreciated. If anything changed, I'll post back in here that I'm continuing to look.

That's not what a 'little birdie' told me. Which is the reason why I'm going this route. :hmm:

Gains everywhere! Very little extra torque. Nice hp gain....and all at the cost of what you can get a used Si turbo for.

No powerband moving to the far right. No compromises! No negatives! Power holds up top in the rev range for longer.

I know it's only +32whp for $300-$500. No sense doing that when I can pay $1500+ for +42whp right? :( I'm an idiot! :banghead:


And I'm STILL dying for a bigger TIP (That's what she said). :p

I intend too. Whether it's good or not. Will see how all this goes. I honestly don't care about dyno plots anymore but it is a great tool to use. Real world results though.....oh baby. It crushes some hearts and souls. I like that. :rofl:

The dyno plots are real. I didn't just randomly decide on this. Just showing some peeps how this all came about.

Not necessarily! I can't dyno, only street tune. Different $$$. Also, 27Won is $1600 (just checked). So an additional $400 on top of that would be $2,000+ or so? I'm not a baller. I'm a poor guy that don't know shi*. So I have to scuffle for scraps and make due with what I can. So I'll settle for the Si turbo. I'll work my way up to your status when I retire hopefully. :D

Not one to talk.....I just do and post up #'s.

BTW: What have you ran in the 1/4 with your 27Won setup? Convince me to get One. <~~~Pun Intended! :drive: On street tires! Not drag slicks! I don't go to work and grocery store with drag slicks.
