Turbo Advice needed.
Car: 99 GT.
Presently: Vortech V2 SQ supercharged. Patriot Stage 3 heads with 288 cams. Cobra crank, manley H beams, and Diamond 19cc pistons. Reichard Racing Aluminum Intake manifold, 90MM throttle body, SCT MAS, 42lbs injectors, cobra fuel pump and boost-a-pump, yadda yadda yadda....
I want to switch to a single turbo setup. Basically my questions are, whats a good turbo to use for the 500-600 hp range? Whats a good wastegate to go with?
and I found a set of turbo headers, Y pipe and down pipe. But I found it odd that, what appears to be the wastegate flange, is located all the way on the bottom of the Y pipe just after where the passenger manifold bolts to the Y pipe. The pipeing continues and then meets with the driver side and goes 2 into 1 and you then would fabricate whatever flange you need to use. Is this ok? I would think the wastegate could not regulate efficiently having only one exhaust bank that it MAINLY releases pressure from??? I am sure it effects the driver side to an extent, but I would figure not much seeing as the exhaust runs in one direction basically. Well anyways whatever input anyone has to offer is appreciate.
