Default Product Feeler: A Different kind of turbo kit... SPOOLINATOR

Something we are working on and looking for feedback...

This product is great for those that have made incremental upgrades, don't want to spend the bigger bucks for a 'rotated' kit, but have outgrown the OEM turbo's power levels. Uncompromised mid-sized turbo performance in a lower cost package.

These results were obtained using a Garrett GTX3067-R on our shop 2012 STi. We are still undergoing testing, but so far results have been very good.







Two Dyno plots. First from Prime Motorsing's Mustang Dyno, where a strong stage II STi reads ~275whp, and a second street pull using virtual dyno. Based on experience, the car feels like the mustang numbers are 25whp low and the virtual numbers are 25hp too high. It feels like a 355+whp car, but probably not more than 375whp. What is really astonishing is the responsiveness at low RPM. One observation that was made is intake temps were climbing in the upper RPMs likely due to heat soak of the OEM intercooler. Car will be put back on the dyno after the ETS TMIC shows up.





Please feel free to post your questions, comments or concerns.

Thanks!

i may be asking an obvious question, but what is the difference between this and swapping in a larger stock location turbo like a blouch dom2.0xtr? i havent dealt with anything beyond a vf48 swap if you can even call that a real swap haha

It looks to me as if its a pseudo stock location setup they are posting. It looks like its stock location in the idea that the inlet goes under the manifold, but the turbo itself sits back further from the engine a little bit. Just speculation of course, but it looks to be a custom up pipe to better position a larger turbo in the stock location.

The only reason I am not sure on this is because its looks like they are using some of the oem brakets for supports on the up pipe. Not sure....

i am in the middle of mapping out my plan if my engine goes and this might be the ticket. if the turbo is pushed back a bit it would be interesting to see how FMIC kits would work. maybe something Killer B should consider if they havent already

I'm liking what I'm seeing.

I'm currently torn on my future turbo setup, but the power and 300 wtq figure looks to be at the right RPM.

Would you be able to fab up a v-band outlet that worked with the APS turbo back? Maybe with the EWG routed into the exhaust?

Will this work on the GDs?

The OEM location 'turbo kits' use an OEM like housing. They are not performance oriented like a Tial turbine housing and you don't have any choices for which A/R choices for the turbine housing with an OEM style housing. You get what they make and what they make is one size. I am not 100% certain, but I believe this turbo is very similar in flow to the Blouch 2.0

The turbo sits in nearly the same location as stock. Any up-pipe can be used (we used our with our holy header) as this bolts onto the up-pipe's turbo flange. All the OEM brackets are retained, which we always prefer (in any kit) as they are rock solid mounting points.

Kit includes tial housing adapter, downpipe, hardware and ancillary bits (oil feed, drain, etc.) to run a GTX turbo.

Any FMIC, or TMIC, that can be mounted to the OEM turbo will work with this kit. The outlet of the Garrett GTX3067 (or any GTX30) is in the same location as the stock turbo

Not that we couldn't, but that's more custom fab shop territory than production based. We can engineer, design and manufacture almost anything you could need, but the cost would be huge compared with what a fabricator could offer.

So far we've only designed it with a VTA WG, since it is made to work with anyone's up-pipe, rerouting the WG becomes an impossible feat.

Ahh I see it now. So its just adapting the 3 bolt flange to a v band flange so a good exhaust housing can be used for a good stock location turbo. I like it!

Makes sense. I like how this all sounds though. Very promising.

This would be an easy upgrade for everyone who is already EWG. Brilliant if you ask me.

Yes. It sounds easy when you say it like that... but it was a pain in the to make happen

Exactly, why toss the stuff you've already bought! It's a step between an OEM turbo housing setup with lackluster performance, and spending bigger money going rotated. The big question is... with the nice housing is a decent spot, does it meet the performance of rotated? More to come on this one.

Thanks!!
