Yes, last weekend I put the walbro 255 intake in there.shavedturbo said:did you upgrade your fuel pump when you did the swap?
93smgturbo said:Its not just a rebuilt turbo. There is alot of machining and research that you are paying for as well. To get the results they did, I imagine they killed 10-15 ct26's AT LEAST to get the results they wanted. Then there is the time and research to get what they got. And then there is the machining each turbo along with the parts and labor you are paying for. If only you ever owned a business or attempted to make a profit on something you made and put time into, you would understand. I also dont want to dog on anybody who sells EMS's or anything, I am actually sticking up for them. You are paying $1500+ for about $10 in metal and $100 in wire plus $200 in sensors or something.(That is just a guess, I have no idea) That is not the point AT ALL. You pay for their months and months, if not years of research and development to bring you what they have. Then there is the stupid hours of phonecalls from people asking things about it and having problems because they are ignorant. Businesses have to take into account that time that they will spend with each product sold as well. The consumer never sees all that goes into these products. If you dont like it, dont buy it.
50-80%?!?! Do you drive around at 140mph all the time? I'm sure I'll be attacked for this statement, but don't blindly jump into buying a ct27 just because a couple of people say so. It is actually $1150 and you get a core trade in after you send your stock ct26 back to them. A ct20b won't necessarily cost $600+ and its performance is very close to that of the ct27. I paid $545 shipped for my ct20b and sold my ct26 for $200, so I basically paid $345 shipped for the ct20b and it has held up very well running 15-16psi daily, and I average 100 miles of driving a day. For the power level you are looking for you might want to find a ct20b for the right price before you jump into the ct27.mr2biker91 said:...Me like. I'm starting to lean towards the ct27 now. Does anyone know about the longevity of this turbo. My car is a daily driver with 40-60miles everyday and 50-80% of that I hit peak boost.
