Most of us have had our turbo kits for some time now and have done a little research on what cams, exhaust, injectors, etc to run. Some people who have just come to the turbo side will ask questions about what to expect from a turbo kit. We give them answers, help them out a little or point them in the right direction, but unfortunately guys like justin feel as though he knows it all. Bringing his blower theories over here, challenging peoples credibilty with boderline insults to those who try to help one another or just putting info out about their builds. I will not post in your threads justin even when i KNOW i can help, because if the answer is not to your liking all you will continue to do is what you already do

So because you have had your turbo kit for a long time that means you know it all?
Is that how it works?
I do not claim to know it all at all, however when I do say something, I pretty much always have some facts to back it up.
You got all butt hurt because I mentioned running a mac flow path muffler because a blower guy was making 40-50 rwhp more with it over a straight through magnaflow.
I understand that turbo and blower cars are different but engines are not....engines will make more power the faster it can get air in and out so if that muffler was flowing enough exhaust to pick up power on a blower setup, I strongly doubt that it would lose power on a turbo setup, especially a mild one like mine.
However I will let you know that I did go with your advice and go with a hooker maxflow, straight through muffler.
When did I ever challenge anyone's credibility or insult anyone?
I asked for some information which he posted very promptly to show his kit was effective although I believe my 67 still spooled a good bit faster which is to be expected, his kit mad amazing power and looks top notch.
He claimed that a 76mm turbo on 8 psi would be better than a 67mm on 10 psi which I dont agree with and apparantly is not true, at least according to the test 5.0 magazine did.
Before I read that article I would have though the 76mm would make more power than a 67mm up top but then I did some more research and learned about compressor maps and realized that is not always the case.
Im not here to step on anyones toes or hurt anyones feelings but this is a free country and if you cant handle someone having a different opinion than you, you probably shouldn't be here
As far as you not posting in my threads, Im sorry to hear that, I dont mean to be an ass, I know I come off like one sometimes but that is not my intention.
Everyone seems to have a different opinion on something so I like to hear peoples opinions and throw other things that I have read/heard into the mix, It doesnt mean I dont believe you or value your opinion.
Like I said, I did end up with a straight through muffler like you recommended.
