How much boost?

What made you choose the T60R over the T50R besides more topend?

20PSI I believe.

The T50R is limited to 400whp and even that is pushing it. The T60R should be able to do 400-450whp without any problem. I like top-end, I don't like loosing steam which is why I went with the T60R (beautiful turbo, I held it in my hands before the installed it).

When AMR puts the FMIC in, the package should really be complete and absolutely do a solid 400whp on 93 pump.

Very cool. Since the T60R is considered "bolt-in" I'd assume it has the same exhaust discharge flange as the stock vf48 and should therefore fit a downpipe made to fit with the stock turbo?

I bet you could probably put down 400whp now on most dynos...I thought AMRs dyno read low...?

I believe I had this discussion with Al at AMR. I'm pretty sure the answer is yes (I'm not 100% on the flange since the T60R exhausting housing I would assume is bigger) but I DO know their down-pipes can accommodate other exhausts than their own easily - I would assume if you bought a T60R you could use a third-party down-pipe as well. I would double-check with AutoMaster (PM them).

When they said bolt-on I was more thinking that it would bolt-on and not have to modify the oil/water connectors etc. when installing, it pretty much looks stock from the pic - you got to love the red!

Oh my god yes. The Dyno Dynamics is the LOWEST reading dyno in the industry. PERIOD. Google it, you will get tons of hits. I bet on a Mustang or Dynojet I could do 400whp easily. I figure I'm about 500 to the fly (but that might be pushing it, not sure). I think with the FMIC, I will be 400whp on the their dyno which will definitely be over 500 at the fly.

Very nice pictures. Keep them coming!

The T50R and T60R are bolt-on turbochargers. They will fit any downpipe and/or up-pipe available on the market. Complete bolt-on.

How's the spool up on the t60?
Spool is almost immediate (if I cruise at 3500 and hit it, it spools up very quickly, power is super smooth), lag on the other hand is certainly there (as expected with a 60 trim). At about 3300rpms at WOT you hear it start to spool and then BAM, it hits, and I mean hard all the way to redline.

Wow very cool. Now that you have had it a little while are you still happy with AMR? What do you think the longevity on your stock motor is going to be cranking out all the HP.? I am a bit worried about cast vs forged slugs. Your car is the bomb! Thanks

Cheers,

Larry
