    IMO no the vxr turbo unit itself cant take more than 300bhp anyway. would personally go for a gt28 and a custom tubilar manifold.

    This man speaks sense.

    Also more than 300hp in a fwd car is a waste of time except for willy waving. Fit a vxr an be done with it!

    I wont be running it at 360bhp
    same thing with VXR turbos danny they are good for 240bhp ish but as soon as you up the boost on them you get a shorter life span
    lile all things in like
    do you have a Sri Turbo ??
    I will be running this turbo at around 270bhp ish
    from what works turbo guy said its a lot better then the other turbo on the car bigger insides an no play

    Not strictly true if they've done a decent hybrid on it.

    Yes a red one i have an hybrid VXR on mine running with bigger internals bearing ETC.. running around around 300bhp and its gone to an early grave by the looks to much boost. So im just going to get a GT28 made up and then i hopefully wont blow any more turbos.

    You've been sniffing too much glue

    Not all power is about boost
