    yes i am doing my rebuild right now and want to know what to run on it? i am shooting for a 400-500hp+ build. im going to be running pump gas for now till i get it done and running, then i am going to go to E85? i have did research before i started my build and was going to go with a 20g but now second guessing myself? any help is great. thanks

    i know i will need a 1000cc injector or bigger so help on that will be great also? :thumb:

    Damn near everyone on here is going to tell you to run a Holset because it's the new "cool" thing in the DSM community.

    400-500 HP is a huge window so I would get a little more specific and also what kind of budget are you dealing with? Are you looking to stay with a DSM flange or are you willing to go to a T3 or something else?

    If you "dont get turbos" you're modifying the completely wrong platform.
    Searching is your best friend.

    Use a HY35. Extremely pump gas friendly. You will be able to make it on 93.

    FP3065, FP Red ( new or old) or PTE 6262. I wouldn't run a holset personally.

    I wouldn't run a holset personally. Search a bit before you go with a 6262 or any other journal bearing PTE. I can't recommend forced performance enough as I've had nothing but good experiences with them.

    Can someone explain to me what's wrong with a Holset other than it's "cool"? Hard facts of physical issues with them?

    I mean, perhaps would should pay for massively over priced, slower spooling, sometimes exploding turbochargers instead of running 9's on a junkyard turbo, right?

    OP- My only advice is do research. It would take pages just to explain all your bolt-on options. If your interested in 500hp, look into a Holset. Also look into the supporting mods that it takes to safely handle 500hp.

    Absolutely love my FP3052. Easy 400whp on pump, 500+ on E85. I could have purchased ANY turbo setup when I did my build and I went with the 3052 and have zero regrets.

    I have no personal experience with the journal bearing PTE's, I've heard good and bad things, but I have not one bad thing to say about my PTE ball bearing 6262. Great turbo and could meet or exceed your goals of 500whp in a t3/t4 form.

    I'd hardly call pre-2004 "new".

    Holsets are great turbos if you take the time to feed them an appropriate amount of oil and have a properly sized drain.

    It's the retards who feed them with 100+psi of oil pressure and use a -10an drain line who destroy them and give them a bad name.

    Calm down everyone. Like I said in my first post, everyone is going to recommend a holset. I never said they were bad or inferior in anyway. I simply said that he should research his options before just buying a turbo that people suggest.

    yes. a hx35 will flow 55-60lb/min depending on turbine housing and if it's a 7 or 8 blade. 7 blade being better.

    Sorry but you need to search/read more if you expect to do this build yourself.
    The stuff you're asking has been asked and gone over a million times.
