let's talk small turbo

Post by jonciukas on Fri May 23, 2008 12:10 pm

Soon I'll be in need of a turbo it seems so opinions on best ones with a decent power curve that start spooling at 2500-3000rpm range?
so far T61 came in my view and whole t3/t4 hybrid setups, anything else major that I would be missing at this point?

I'm not looking for a huge setup hense the low spooling range need power in mid to higher range 6.1k redline; running on stock internals on a 4cyl 2AZ-FE if anyone's familiar.

Opinions and anything else welcome.

Yep '06, scion's have the same engine as well as all the new 4cyl camry's

It's fwd so if I do it like I said I'm not looking for huge numbers as it won't really do well at the strip no matter what.
plus right now it's a/t and if I want it to handle more than mid 200's I will need a manual so if I will build anything eventually I will start with a manual tranny but then again there's not that big of a point to go that far a fwd with 400-500hp won't do much good haha

Toyota racing released the factory spec supercharger for scions that you can buy....gets you in the 200's. However I have heard its not that great considering the price...

Yeah it's not a lot of power and fitment would be off under the hood; would probably need to shift things around. If doing custom might as well go for turbo: more options to upgrade later turbo and internals.

Well....not necessarily true. A nice supercharger can give you a very smooth, solid power band. The second you start up the car, your supercharger is spinning so there is no drastic kick in the ass when it finally hits (assuming you have a proper tune...).
Overall though, you can get more power from a Turbo...but you aren't looking at huge numbers

well with a turbo you have more ability to upgrade as well, if in the end for some reason I decide to built the engine I can upgrade the turbo and have more power that's another advantage, but anyways in terms of turbos anything else I should look at?

Still not sure I agree, but the T61 sounds pretty good to me.
