    Does the FP3052 use the "Ballistic Concepts Ball Bearing CHRA from Garrett"? The FP website lists this centersection as the exception for getting oil from the oil filter housing. I'm sure that FP knows its stuff, I just can't find any info on why the FP3052 needs its oil feed from the head instead of the oil filter housing.

    One more for you FP guys, what are the benefits of that divided compressor intake housing. Those four cutouts that DSMJim refers to.

    Ball bearing turbochargers should not be subjected to oil pressure above 60psi. OIl pressure at the filter housing can exceed 100psi.

    The cutouts in the compressor housing are surge ports.

    That looks really sweet JDM. Hey what track is open till february? It can't be Budds creek, cause next week is the last week. By the way, did you go to the shootout yesterday?

    Yeah, spent some time surfing and found that a bit later. Thanks anyway! :D

    Would the 3052 be a good turbo for a 2.4L hybrid or would it be a smarter choice to go with the 3065?

    I know there both awesome turbos and the 65 is obviously bigger, but worth it on the 2.4L in a street car?

    No problemo. :D

    Might want to ask that one to FP directly...

    All you're going to get here is opinion, I'll bet. These turbos are pretty new, I don't think anyone but FP could really compare them based on actual experience.

    Makes sense. This is just speculation, so I wouldn't want to waste FPs time. OMG

    Awesome thread though, very informative. :thumb:

    GreenBelt,
    Exactly also im sure most use or have used the same type of hacked up g@yness I used for an oil return line in the past. In addition to how well the 40MM tial clears the power steering pump bracket. take a look at how well the braided oil return line fits also. Now we just have to get her towed down to extreme to have the d/p cut and flanged, and its all done.

    do you plan on running an air filter on that, or just straight turbo sucking in birds ?

    Go on WRX websights and youll see pleanty of birds being sucked into the hoods scoop and being plastered on their top-mount IC's. In all reality, a bird wouldnt be able to fly under the car and into the turbo :rolleyes: I believe Ananda lists in his profile he purchased a 4" CAI from Dejon Tool.
