    So is it looking like anyone looking for a turbo upgrade, but not looking to go the PRL turbo kit route should steer clear of this for now?

    Can you just post your concerns then? I ordered one with their group buy and wondering if I should cancel before it's too late.

    They said they did... but no evidence of any graphs for low testing and power output for the COMP Turbo has been provided:hmm:

    I don't want to de-rail the thread, but if Comp's turbo ends up being a flop, is the W1 worth it?

    The W1 is a great option as is. There are lots of benefits to it being a new turbocharger from the ground up, as opposed to an upgraded OEM turbo. Sure the cost is higher, but benefits are there.

    So what’s the deal with their turbo? Is the compressor wheel too big and the stock turbine wheel too small to spool this turbo? How come no dyno results on how it performed? And since you got to tune it would you recommend this turbo over the 27won w1 turbo? I’m sure everyone wants to know the questions I’ve asked.

    I wonder why lol? Still waiting for your results on the Comp Turbo as Franco hasn't posted about it yet.
