Hi guys,

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

Cheers.

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

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).

I have a GT30 700hp turbo producing 330rwkw. It spools up slightly faster than the larger GT40, not sure about the cost difference.

Cheers for the info guys.

If I told you what sort of engine it was for you would all probably end up chasing me down the street with pitch forks and stakes !

If a turbo makes 500hp ona certain motor it will do it on another.So within reason if you make 270 rwkw on a six you will on a 5 Ltr but maybe at lower rpm..Its all about cfm more than boost....
