Default It never ends! (turbo time)

The search for more power continues. Well it's not really a search for more power. But I'm hoping to gain some more hp and trq. Over the winter I'll be doing a turbo build. The ysi made some great numbers with the converter unlocked. But I'm tired of replacing the belt on the damn thing already. I'm going to piece the kit together. I'll be going with a precision turbo 7675, cgfab hot side, Thinking about getting a custom downpipe that exits out of the bumper (still debating on that). I don't know what wastegate or bov I'm going to go with. This is where you guy come in. What are you turbo's guys using?

ahh another blower guy seeing the light. I believe my bovs and wastegates are turbo smart but I would have to double check since they came with the kit I bought a word of advice stay as far away from the turbosmart boost controller as possible it is the biggest pos out there and takes a rocket scientists to figure out

tc and kerns would have made very similar numbers if they had the same trans. But kerns just uses quite a bit less boost lol
