ive had this turbo for about 5000miles now. i put it in when my car when it hit the 10,000mile marker!

the turbo inlet is ported out for a bit more air flow. i have ran it with my utec at 17psi daily driven. ive been to the drag strip once with this turbo on. in denver colorado, ran a 13.2, 18psi... but still was running rich, so definately room for more potential.

i live in bay area. any more questions or pix, email me at [email protected]

or call 4085823002

550$ OBO

with that utec can you take your revs up higher or are you keeping them at the stock redline? and what made you pick the utec over the vishnu one?

my friend is running utec and a hks fcd(fuel cut defenser), and he told me he redlines at just about 8000rpm without fuelcutting! i heard good things bout the fcd.

but i myself, is sort of a beginner on realllly tuning the utec. i just tuned the fuel and timing for now. im also using an open loop boost type(electronic boost controls), so i havent messed with the boost map. in my opinion bringing up the redline isnt that great of a move... u cann do it with the utec, but i think whatever the engine sets at(7000rpm), i wouldnt wanna push it u know!? unless massive internal mods are done...

are u talking bout the vishnu unichip or the xede?

yeah i was talking about the unichip. but that fuel cut defenser thing. i have heard good things about that, how it gets ride of boost spiking, and keeps things on the level. they talked about that fuel cut in the new import tuner on a dsm. is that thing really worth the money because that was the frist i have ever heard about that.

i also have a unichip for sale hehe!! yaa unichip is nothing compared to utec. pretty much simple answer for why chose utec: user tunable haha! andd i dunno howww far u can go with the unichip on tuning wise... but i do reme there was a really big difference when i put in the unichip! that was a while ago.. haha

ya from what my freind says, he loves the fcd. its only around $150.. im gonna get that later on for sure, i think its worth it. cuz rex's are known to fuel cut! at least mine does..

what have u done to ure car?

i got my car right when it came out in 2001, and jumped right into mods. so from my experiences, ive changed from a lot of different parts, and learned the hard way haha! not like now, u can basically find anything.

the unichip is probably the most cost affective part for ure car. its instant power. i mean u should start out slow, play with ure car. cuz i cant just tell u get the utec... u gotta learn about the car first. utec will run at its best with upgraded turbo, inj and fuel pump in my opinion.
