Pac Performance recommends the RBR550 turbo for my 92EBII fairmont

Hey members:

I emailed Pac Performanc about turbo setups, about what they recommend and the prices involved. They replied with the RBR550 ($2200), a 48mm wastegate ($800), and an air cleaner ($85) ??? i dunno.

Anyhow- just want to see what you guys think, and if anyone could explain what the RBR 550 is like, and its capabilities, that would be great.

If you don't already have a turbo? the only thing I don't see on the list ia a custom manifold etc to suit.

The RBR I believe stands for Reynham Brothers Racing or whatever their last name is. I therefore assume the turbo is a custom to their specs. I would also assume that the 550 would stand for 550hp.

The first question is, how much power do you want and what type of driveability.

FYI you should be able to get a Garret T66 for about $2000 at the worst new if you shop around. This turbo will support upto 500rwhp with OK boost response.

A T66 is just a bigger T04, same family...
Check for extra $$ a water cooled housing and ball bearing makes the extra $$ worth it..Consider a T3540...b/b and water cooled...

Re: Pac Performance recommends the RBR550 turbo for my 92EBII fairmont

I am going to run a 60-1 on my setup with goals of boost by ~2200rpm and ~280rwhp on 10psi on a stock block. From what I understand the T66 will spool about 500rpm later with potential for 550rwhp if you can go over 20psi. The 60-1 maxes out at ~500rwhp in my setup.

Ball Bearing centre is supposed to be able to give the same boost response with the next larger sized compressor wheel. Also they can virtually run on a dribble of oil. I know of a drag motor that was only supplying 20psi oil pressure and the turbos were fine.
