You know.....it's really a dang good turbo. However, if you don't "think" during the build, you're screwed. Build a dang turbo for "400HP"..... that's what they've done. Who in their right mind would pay good money for a 400-450 HP turbo when there is one sitting under the hood? Heck, we have seen MORE HP out of an IHI than BD so far. I think they released it wayyyy too soon. MUCH MORE R&D should have been done. Well, actually just a little would have helped a ton.
