    You expecting easy 11s when tuned with this turbo?
    Can't see why not, the last (non beams) 3SGTE motor did 11s often with a GT3071

    Wouldnt surprise me if it did a 10.

    After fitting the GTX3071 T3 0.64 and running 25psi (on 98) for a little while, I dropped it back to 22psi with more advance and now take it to 8000 (doesnt seem to drop off in power!)
    I drilled and tapped the head with a 3SGTE style bolt pattern. Unfortunately unless you can get a TTE WRC gasket, I had to make my own (which eventually burned out)
    A mate is going to draw the gasket up in cad and I will get a bulk amount made properly.

    Its definitely a weapon and very reliable! (Still selling the car tho)

    UPDATE:-
    A valve retainer groove chewed out after not long. Apparently the stock springs do not light high boost and revs. I fitted F1944P and F1945P Ferrea valves, double valve springs, titanium retainers etc. Dropped the rev limit to 7500 as power dropped off above that. Made 360hp at wheels on 20psi with 98 fuel and 7500rpm. Sold the car.

    UPDATE:-
    New owner just chewed out the buckets on the exhaust side!! Cam is chewed too. One bucket snapped. No one can work out why. Springs did not bind (5mm more lift left in them), stock cams, stock cam wheel and cam timing. Valves have not hit pistons, all intake buckets are fine! Cam journals are fine (so not an oil problem). A good head shop is trying to work out wtf happened and how to fix it.
