I would think the manufacturer assumes you have some form of boost controller

A lot of broken parts does not make you a racer; it makes you a slow learner.

Bob Dole assumes nothing.




True or false. I can run a slightly tighter convertor than spec'd by the turbo manufacturer with a larger turbo if I use a boost controller like an RJC unit.If true...why?



Well, if I were Bob Dole answering this question, seeing as we all love to speak in the third-person, I'll be a dude playing another dude pretending to be another dude..


So Bob Dole thinks that the boost controller of that nature would have minimal affect on the converter's responsiveness
.


If you went from a stock WG setup and then went to a twin scroll 4 bolt setup with dual external wg's running Co2...I'd say that THAT would have an affect on the responsiveness of the turbo, allowing you to run a slightly tighter converter.

Probably false. The MBC holding the wastegate fully closed might help during the spoolup stage, but the converter has to slip enough to get the turbo started spinning in the first place.

Would the Comp Turbo Technology CT3S Turbo 60 62 be a good upgrade from a ta49 ? Also could I take the 3 bolt housing from the ta49 and bolt it to the comp turbo ?
