    Anyone Running A GT3071?

    Is anyone running a gt3071?

    Im thinking about a gt3071 with a .86 A/R in a t25 housing with internal WG

    What rpm do they kick in and what rpm do they hit full boost?

    Thanks
    Lee

    Yeah your right, Thats why i going for the 3071.

    Not as good low down as a 28 but doesnt have to be reved as high as a 76.

    Hmm wonder if owens do a gt3071HTA? would rev just as quick as a 28 then

    Already in talks mate.

    But the guy who knows them is on holiday.

    Also ive heard a few stories about the 2876 not being a good turbo for 4 cylinder motors as there a unbalanced turbo and ment to be for v6's, v8's were only 3/4 cylinders feed the turbine but the compressor feeds all 6/8 cylinders.
