Default Turbo selection

Hey guys i figure since there is a lot of people running lots of different setups here I would ask maybe some to chime in. I am looking to replace my turbo with an 1.5XTR but i know there might be some "better" suggestions out there. Basically this car is my daily driver and track rat, it needs to make some serious low end jam. I am open to options but it cannot be laggy. I was 1 click from confirming payments for the 1.5XTR(yes i know its not sub 4k spool) but got cold feet and figure I would ask for input before it was writen in stone.

Needs: 410tq at the wheels capable with low end grunt (sub 4k? dare i say?)

But you need a lot more than just a turbo to fully support it.

For faster spool and not as much holding power in the high RPMs go with a 1.5xtr with a 8 cm hotside.

I have a friend running a rotated full race efr 7163 ewg v-band. I believe he said full spool by 3700-3800rpm. I like the specs so much I'm strongly leaning into getting this turbo. Although for me probably stock location with the full race stock location kit.
Check out the specs

BorgWarner EFR 7163 Turbo - Full-Race.com

just something else to consider

GTX3067-R works exceptionally well on our setup... Spools similar to OEM and makes ~400whp on 93 pump. Very fun street and Auto-X setup.

Boost plot...

You can get a drop in, with an OEM style hotside. It will not perform as well as what you're seeing here since the OEM style hotside, but it is "drop-in".

This plot comes off our Spoolinator kit that uses a V-Band Tial hotside, which is really the heart of the kit and why it performs as well as it does IMO.

I went with the 2.5 Xtr, also have killerB header/up/ewg w/ swaintech coating. I was worried about spool but now that I have it I'm glad I went with the 2.5. I have the 2.5" inlet and 10cm. It spools so fast that I think I could have went with even a bigger turbo and be satisfied. I'm sure the headers/up/ewg from killer B helps alot.
