    uprated LET turbo

    can a LET turbo be uprated? will it be as strong as a uprated vxr unit.

    what power will a uprated LET turbo be able to handle?

    well mine just has 360 bearing system, and is fine with 260hp. im sure it could do slightly more but wouldn't risk it.

    there isnt alot between the 2 turbos really...an upgraded turbo of either variety aslong as the turbo is good to start with should be pretty strong.

    so in your opinions and uprated LET turbo with bearings and seals will handle 300bhp?

    would i need a bigger compressor wheel?

    i would think it would be ok around that i wouldnt push it much further than that tho.
    some people are running 300 ish with std vxr turbos so a bearing and seal job should be more than adequate
