<<Thanks Javad

I think we agree: Allmost anything is better than oe turbo EM :)
Those guys want to make some kind of tube header with modified

Yes, overall, but I still hold that if your goal is 250hp or less, no reason
to mess with the stock manifold, overall its a good design within' that
range, very good in the stock application.

57 trim, not mm, the major diameter of my compressor wheel is 2.95" or about
74mm, the exh. turbine major is 2.559" or about 65mm

Well, I'm looking for about 3-400hp, I don't know if 500 is realistic for a
10v on the street, even 400 is really pushing it.  Currently I'm running
about 14psi, I estimate (gtech pro) about 275-300hp flywheel on 91 octane,
anymore boost kindof pushes the ignition curves, plus, I can barely
accelerate on the street without killing someone or going to jail, not much
acceleration with other people around.

Next month I will be at the track, however, and I'd like to try as much as
20psi with 100 octane, should be interesting.

Likewise, fast Audi's are fun, I'm always open to giving rides to listers
(assuming them come to my house and country  ;)
