    The turbo is a TD05H-18G. Blouch confirms it. HOWEVER, it is a custom 18G. Instead of using the TD06 housing with the 18G wheel like the standard 18G, it uses the TD05 housing. The result (when combined with PnP) is very fast spool at the expense of slightly less power up top. Still, Blouch says I should expect 330-340whp from this (with supporting mods).

    I'm actually quite happy with that. This turbo is like the predecessor to the 16GXT: Fast spool, good top end. The the billet wheel on the 16GXT is much more efficient though.

    A lot actually. I have to pull my sparkplugs and check my gap. I'm going to perform another compression test, though Hill says it's unlikely low compression since I'm not consuming oil or coolant. We're looking for hidden power here. It could be a boost leak, leaky BPV, etc. I'm using a custom stock BPV built by Donkey, so I doubt that it's leaking. I'm going to have to go over each component carefully, looking for leaks.

    I like your methodical approach. I just sort of threw parts in the general direction of my engine bay loaded up an OTS tune and hoped for the best. So far it's working out ok, but I'm sure I'm not getting the most from the mods.

    Well, I ordered a GrimmSpeed MBC from Kronos. Hill and I decided it would be the best to move forward with a hybrid boost control scheme. I'm still boost spiking in 5th gear, since I am in higher-load cells at that speed. Changing the WGDC to dial out the boost spike will leave me with slower boost response in lower load cells (i.e. 2nd, 3rd gear). By switching to the hybrid boost control, I retain the dynamic boost control of the 3-port and also set the MBC to 21 PSI to eliminate the boost spike. Best of both worlds.
