Yeah, I understand that. What I don't understand is with approx 80 more hp how could the tq go down by almost 20 ?thats just a genaric map for that turbo that will work for every car, if you were to get a protune with that turbo and supporting mods you would be well above those numbers
Does anybody know ?
It is a fun daily driver . But from what I've heard ,that much torque can break my tranny. So would the 18g set up be less likely to break my tranny even though it has more hp ? Right now I am at cobb stage 2 and the tq # are 340 . The 18g has 322 #tq .These are not dyno #s ,just the #s that are on cobbs website.tshrey pretty much summed it up but basically puny turbo on a 2.5 vs a bigger turbo on a 2.5. Thats why, and like he said, those 340 torque come in early and die early, 18g torque is a much better curve at higher rpm's. But low end torque stage 2 would be a fun daily driver.
I was using my 20g with protune (conservative) for 20k miles before i swapped in my 6speed. I also have an 06 and made sure therewas no harsh launching, smooth upshifts and rev matching downshifts. It might not be the same for other 06 stage 2 users, buti can confidently contribute i was running waaaay more power than stock on my original 5 speed. It was running well up until the day I took it out. The swap was preemptive and I had a buyer for my stock tranny.So ppg gears or sti swap before an 18g setup ?
Oh I'm definately going to hold off on it . I don't have any choice,or money. I just can't stop thinking about doing stuff to the rex. I drive my wife crazy when I talk to her about it. She thinks I'm obssesed :screwy:If you can save money for a tranny swap and do the turbo swap i'd do it and drive it till i bust it but thats just me. If your gonna have trouble saving money for a tranny swap after your upgrade, i'd hold off on it. Based on your other thread, i'd hold off on it.
