UPDATE-

The core turbos showed up and much to my surprise they had the 60 mm compressor wheel instead of the 54 mm.

All else being the same what kind of tuning issues may I incur if I upgrade to the 60mm units?

And does that make these cores the gt28 ?

Thanks in advance- Tim H

Basic marketing '101'

Get your message in front of as many eyes as possible.

Not all those reading the engine posts go over to the turbo posts or vice versa.

The readers of either may have valuable and appreciated input - but they have to see the question first.

Others may learn something they did not know they wanted to know.

That and the one post was already locked!

maybe it was locked for advertising type of writing ?! :realmad:

Sometimes your post, or at least all I've read sound like you'r in relation to a turbo company (hence 'spindoctor'..) ?

The Spindoctor moniker comes from my being an AWD Dyno tuner. I have had a Mustang AWD twin eddy 500 for 11 years with over 800 cars across the rollers.

Now back to our regularly scheduled question-

Any info on these 60mm turbos as they apply to the 918 motor would be appreciated as I plan on using them instead of the OEM units.

Any reason not to is what I am most interested in.

Also, I have added the twin air\water charge cooler kit previously.

I always like to finish my posts in case someone was following along-

In the race against the clock it was decided to stick with original compressor wheels. (the 60mm wheels and parts may be found under for sale items shortly)

I rebuilt the left bank turbo with the core turbine wheel had it balanced installed and joy of joys no more smoke.

If anyone is interested I would post pictures of the damaged seal ring groove and maybe video

Thanks - Tim H
