    I think the only reason they arent released yet is only due to the consistency of availability.

    They get them in batches i think. And consistancy per batch is the issue.

    So when will this be hitting the track?

    And how fast do you expect your 3076HTA to spool with the ts t4?

    The car will hit PIR this spring as mentioned. Feel free to look at the attached Dyno graph from a few posts ago, and make a judgment on spool for yourself, the lower graph is boost.

    ^Haha thanks Mike!

    I bet you would treat her good... :DROFL Im not so sure my wife would mind either! My red headed mistress and my red headed wife do not get along... :nono:

    Thank you for the compliment! Honestly you would drive up, see her in person and laugh at me, she sat for so long the hood baked and needs recleared and the front bumper saw one too many winters in Montana. I gotta do some major body and paint stuffs to her before anyone would really take her!

    More to come!

    Were you ever able to get a log? I'm curious to know what kind of airflow you're seeing. Just need to see rpm, timing, map, wideband, speed, and airflow ideally. I'm also wondering if you're not able to gain more power with more boost because of a turbine restriction.

    There's been a lot of discussion on the EVO forums that even on the standard 3076, the turbine wheel is a bit small for the compressor (not much bigger than a TD05H). Going to a higher flowing HTA/GTX wheel is only going to exacerbate the problem. A few people have posted results going to the 3576 (35r turbine, which is bigger than a TD06H). and seeing the same spool with more power through the whole range. On a stroker, it seems like an HTA3576 would be ideal for your setup. Also, consider that on the FP HTA Red, they use a clipped TD06H wheel.

    So far all of my logs have shown me spinning as soon as I try to hit full boost. Ill try and do some logs friday and post them up if the weather is decent. I understand what you are saying on the turbine being too small on a stroker, however, Buschur was able to put down 600 awhp with a 2.3L Evo 8 on a smaller undivided turbine housing on a HTA3076 so I am assuming that in my case this is not the issue.

    I do know it was spinning on the dyno so the numbers are slightly skewed as it is and there is also some concern that the cams that I purchased on the 'for sale' forums may not have been as advertised. No one can deny or confirm what went into the head when it was put together so until I pop the cover and look / replace them with new cams, we wont be able say. Sure would be crazy to find out I have stock cams in there... :confused::hmm:

    I would also like to explore the hta3576 sometime in the distant future but by then we will have turbos who instantly spool up so it wont matter! ROFL

    ^This all sounds extremely prick-ish as I read it over again and I swear the intent is only to provide details and info on the discussion, thanks for posting up Steve93Talon. Your thoughts do not fall on deaf ears, its just a matter of getting the current modlist under control and finding the time/funds to move on to some different parts to experiment.

    *Enclosed is a taste of one of my 'spinning' logs... just a snipet for you, lmk what you think.

    Great build, always great to see another pdx local on a Forum, we should meet up some time.

    Know of any cheap fenders?

    ^^ Thanks man, it will not be abandon, I will be back with more as soon as I get through this next couple months of hell with the business proposal and hopefully starting the transition into the desk I hope it brings.

    ^There is a 2g in the yard at Foster and 120th, I bet you could get those cheap, Im not 100% sure what shape they are in but it might be worth a look! Im down to hang out and shoot the sh**, let me know when and Ill get a couple of the guys I know together at the same time!
