High Tech Turbo is also a good choice for turbos. Heard good from their new Stainless Steel exhaust housings.

What do the SS housings have over the regular steel housings?

They are thinker and retain heat better which is supposed to help efficiency and help them spool sooner. They also come in a 13cm size for the 71mm turbine wheel.


And the best part is.............They turn crazy colors when subjected to heat :sly:


Heres the ad http://www.htturbo.com/StainlessSteel.doc

i love my industrial injection silver bullet, its an awsome turbo with everything ive got it will still clear the smoke up to a haze at WOT. it also keeps egts in check havnt seen them over 1500*, one thing though you will need a minimum of head studs because even with the boost elbow open all the way and a boost leak i can still peg my 60 PSI boost gauge! but its a awsome turbo and would recomend it!

First of all, head studs are not required for 60psi or less. A marine head gasket, o-ringed head, and factory bolts will hold just fine. Second, I do not doubt you have a good turbo, but I would love to see what your drive pressures are at 60psi. I am sure they are not good.

That being said I have been running a 62/13/71 HTT stainless turbo for going on a year now. I was one of the first ones in the country to receive one as a beta tester and I have been nothing but pleased with it. The dual port wastegate works awesome. It is set to come open at 42psi and I can only blow enough past it to make 44psi. It is fully adjustable though and can be changed, although 42-44psi is right in the sweet spot of it's map. The turbo spools quick for having a 71mm wheel, yet keeps everything nice and cool. I highly recommend one myself.

Love my HTT 64/14. Have thought about trying the SS 13 housing, though. I readjusted my 'gates to 38psi before I installed it. Haven't pushed past it yet.

That turbo combination is interesting. It should be keeping those EGT's lower and your hp should ideally be well over 500hp, if your getting max boost and 1500*?!? The silver bullet is a 66/73/14 and is capable of nearly 900hp as a single, its a rather large turbo, I wonder if that turbo is to big :shrug: Any ideas about this one?

Don't know. Was rebuilt right before the 71 series came out. Never asked Paul. Spool up isn't any worse than the PDR HX40 I had before.

i have no clue? i was expecting more HP. anyways i was just letting him no it was a good turbo, and if he wanted a big single it would be a good choice. How would i check the drive pressure???

You have to plumb a pressure gauge into the exhaust manifold. Some copper tubing works good because it won't melt. Pressures can get pretty high so I'd make sure the gauge can read 100psi
