I am going to check today just to make sure that's what I haven.

It's really dependant on what you want from the car TBH. If it's fast response, good useable power, then the Ti OE turbos are perfect. IMO for a road car that is a perfect turbo.

I can't really comment on bigger turbos as I have never driven an Evo with one. However judging by people's graphs and feedback it wouldn't be for me on a road car. If you're looking at using it mainly on track then it's a different story.

I just want something fast and will give me a buzz I will be doing some events and track days but mostly road trips ect. I have had a few big turbo road cars and love them and depending on set up they can work very well on the road.

Crack on then mate , why not? As said not not for me considering the money involved and the ability to use it fully on the road. But I can understand if you're gonna use it on track

The difference between the tme and Mr RS Turbos is marginal, the Mr RS Turbo will give you 420 all day long with great spool and transient response

I think Owens will only do the BB upgrade on a brand new turbo, that's what they said when I enquired about doing it to my 80 series anyway...
