      How well does the HX35 fit the VR6's characteristics?

      Pretty interesting thread on a g6o with an 8v head. 280whp on 24 psi. I still have the stock holset actuator as well so i will be there at some point, and I should see over 300 whp with my 16v head.

      check my build thread, granted it hasnt been updated in a while. You can use another wastegate actuator from another car that has an adjustable rod and go from there. I got mine from a Saab 900 with a t25, and got a metric eyelet rod from ebay.

      I think its set for about 8si. If it doesnt work then tial and screamer pipe ftmfw

      On a second note I just got some extra v-band rings so i can have a nice open exhaust for H20

      I would think similar to a 50 trim on a vr6, maybe a bit over 3 k for spool.

      2400rpm = 1psi 3300rpm = 20psi with 12cm hotside

      I found a user on here by the name of "G60 Scuzz." He ran a hx30 on his bone stock PG corrado and made 285whp @ 24 psi. I think 300 whp for me is no prob, considering that i'm running a 16v and I have the same holset actuator for some shenanigans

      Thats faster than the .63 50 trim my friend had on his vr6. All it could do was 10 psi at 3300 or so.

      Watching the tach, boost and road in a vrt was never easy

      what hx35 do you have 6/7/ or 8 blade compressor ?

      have you tried any other turbo on ur car to compare the differnces ?

      i read they dont come into there efficiency range till past 20psi ??

      Ive read there are different 6/7/8 blade compressors depending on year of the turbo, any specific compressor better than the other?

      All the information regarding compressor efficiency and what blade compressors are the best is all on the first page

      I think it is a 8 blade wheel. Im told that that turbo is good for much more than 15psi but I am pretty sure that I will F#** something up if I run much more than that on a stock motor.

      what happened to usrt quintin.

      Holy **** btw. There is still 10 psi left in that turbo, but i think at 35 psi the head will lift

      Hey all, I hope to be a member of the Holset bandwagon soon. Looking to buy the hx35 that's in the classifieds right now. hx35 with an 18cm compressor housing. going on a 12v.

      any advice for starting out?


      This is a fantastic thread, btw. Thanks so much for all the info posted up.

      2.5" v-band out
      3" v-band hot side

      if that helps at all...

      It's what, 6 lb/min difference between a 7blade and 8blade - ignoring all the vgt ones?

      that's what they say...but see my 8blade measured 56mm inducer 82mm exducer... the 7blade measured 54mm inducer and 76.2mm exducer...so i bet the flow is about equal.

      BTW are you coming to h2o???
