Recommended Turbo for ~ 500hp

Hi guys,

Can anyone recommend a good Turbo that will serve about ~ 500+ horsepower ?

Cheers.

Re: Recommended Turbo for ~ 500hp

for 500+ turbo your easiest route would be a GARRETT GT40. not cheap but can do 700bhp.

Ive been described as a vault of usless random knowledge.

Ill take it as a complement i think.............

Re: Recommended Turbo for ~ 500hp

Yep, Dazza's right...My AU XR6 is running a GT40 (rated at 600hp, might be 700hp but I'm not fussed), set at 10psi and already making 270rwkw at 4800rpm (9psi) as the injectors could not pump out any more fuel to bring the power curve up any further (bigger injectors going in soon plus a retune).
