Yeah, Greddy has a nice one too. I beleive Blitz has one.
Blitz makes a SuperCharger. Greddy did make a Turdo but are not developing a SuperCharger as well for more pwer gains. HKS is suppose to come out with a Turbo within the next year.

Intercooler is too small, not properly tuned, not enough bang for the buck. My 2 cents

Unsure of the details i think its still in the works.
I called one of my FI buddies and he said still nothing. He heard that they may had one running, but then it let go. He said it may have been a rod from too much boost.

Funny thing though, when Revhard was talking to me, I was given the impression this set-up was ready to go back in Feb2004. I guess not.

MussBuss...how can you tell the intercooler is too small without knowing anything about the turbo itself or what the boost is that it would be pushing? And besides, other than the high compression on these 1NZ's, you don't even need an intercooler at 7 PSI or less, so it actually might be too big.

I showed these pics to those who tune FI for a living, and even they said that IC is too big, more for show than anything. And they are the "experts" out here.

How's this?

"X's car is a perfect example of what a DSM could potentially be. With well over 450 horsepower to all 4 corners and the looks to back it up, this is a serious street machine. X's car is on pump gas, street tires and is driven on a daily basis. This is an AWD GST, that is not a typo. X's beast started life as a 1995 FWD turbo DSM. We have since converted it to AWD to get better traction on both launches and turns."

I'm confused... sorry, does this mean they are going to make an XB with a DSM (Talon) AWD setup????

Ive heard from a couple other shops that when you add the turbo or a supercharger to the engine within 6 to 8 months it takes a ****

Depends who is tuning it and how hard the person is driving it. I know one turbo set-up that's been running for over a year now. Its made several runs between SoCal and Nor*Cal.

I heard third/fourth hand there's another turbo xB up here, anyone know?

Steve who?

If you're referring to bBist, he drove his xB up here for Import Motion January 2004 after the turbo had been installed for a few months, then he drove it back up AGAIN, for HIN-San Mateo. I know because he drove to my house.

It was only trailered ONCE up here for Scion Night II.

It had a small problem in the beginning because the kit is a one-off. But not that its tuned, he's had no problems.

Its been driven everywhere else, how do I know, becaused I've followed him in my xB.

And no, he does not have the GReddy SC in his xB.

If you want to talk about trailer queens, I guess you're referring to the hot lava w/ the surfboard w/ graphics.
