No aftermarket or hybrid turbos company for our cars will disclose that information to you for obvious reasons.

Sales this year have been quite strong, and we're having trouble keeping them in stock. We're expecting quite a large shipment in 2-3 weeks.

There are rules about vendors posting in each others threads or posts about each other, so you prob won't see them post here, although if those vendors want to post their wheel specs in this thread (just specs) it's fine with me.

I currently use TTE 740+ .. 98ron + meth 100% 726bhp crank 2bar .. I'm thinking of gc or gc + .. what real difference in lag is there spool .. and transient respone? I don't know what specs my turbos have, there is no way to find it. Thanks

Can't speak to TTE as we're unfamiliar with their wheels, but the difference between GC and GC+ is a few hundred RPM in spool and a little extra lag b/c of the larger compressor. For most stock motor goals, regular GC's are all the turbo you'll need. The responsiveness is fairly close to stock, these are really fun turbos to drive, no lag monsters. Remember, dynos do not show lag!

Their wheels are massive looks almost too big (20g ?) to be well rounded, the exhaust is a td04HL 9 blades commonly found.




Edit :For reference : Vargas ones the black is the 58mm and the yellow is the 63 mm you can compare with the chra diameter.

Not sure what you mean, those are the industry standard sizing numbers. They use extended tip technology, other than that blade tech details are proprietary.

Sorry, that was my question .. if I could compare your escape wheel to TD04HL's ..

And what is your thought about the GC or GC+ option.. waht diference around 2 bar pressure?

If there is any opinion of people who used the 2 models in the same vehicle, or their personal experience. Thank you

GC+ flows more, GC spools a few hundred rpm earlier and has a little less lag. Stock motor usually people get GC's.

We tested some TD04HL/20G GC's about 3 years ago. What a truly a terrible combination it was. On the dyno we saw an extra 500RPM of lag with no noticeable gain in power. My guess is, they decided to offer that combination without doing any testing before releasing it.
