Saying the 80 series was ditched implies it was inferior, which I think is far from the case.

The 80 series has shown time and again that it's more than capable of running 400+ bhp with decent response.

However, the IX MR FQ-360 turbo was designed for a 300 bhp car (the JDM IX MR), so at that power level it makes sense to fit a slightly smaller turbo and benefit from better response times and lower boost threshold.

It would be interesting to see how the IX MR FQ-360 turbo performs at higher boost levels in comparison to the 80 series and in particular the 71 series.

I wouldn't mind betting that both the 71 and 80 series are capable of producing more boost at high rpms than the IX MR FQ-360 turbo.

Sorry ditched was perhaps harsh.

Yeh I think the 80 wins up top , but down low the other is king. Depends where you want the powerband I guess

I can post my recent dyno graphs if you like, I have the OE IX MR FQ360 turbo fitted.

I have a boost graph that shows 1.7 bar tailing off around 6000rpm.

Although of course from the original title that would be great if you could

I guessed it would tail at 6...
