Good. That's way better than a gasser.

Rad. Did you pick that up recently or is it some secret project we've never been privy to? Pics? I've secretly always wanted a '55 2-door, since I was like 10 years old. I guess the secret is out.

I'll throw some pictures up, its been on the works for a long time, well not really been worked on. I bought it back in 2011 as a roller for 500 bucks. It's really straight, no cancer rust. It's getting hopefully a big bore lt5 with a 6speed, it's sitting on a brand new chassis with c4 suspension as well. Right now it's just sitting in storage waiting. It's a father son deal so we are just trying to get all of our own projects done so we can tear into it

I'm thinking about putting the China 78/75 on the car, Dyno running it and running it on the track. Then swapping on the Garrett on. The wheel size on the intake and exhaust wheels are nearly identical. What I want to do is a buget vs bucks up and see if the extra cost is worth it. I think it will be interesting to see the difference

My guess if the Garrett is a GT/GTX, you may not as as much a peak difference number as feel it in response on the street.

It's a GTX4202R, with a 102mm compressor wheel, and 82mm turbine (both major diameters). Would need to keep in mind wheel sizes and turbine A/R to make it a meaningful comparison.

What are the compressor exducer and turbine inducer of the China 78/75?

The chinaboi is 102/82 as well. However, undivided housing, and the physical size of the housings is much much smaller

Should mention the China one is a billet wheeled turbo as well. Also I am going to test open down pipe and full exhaust. Same boost levels

The billet 7875 from Vren at VS Racing is almost untouchable for $ per HP. He has the QC on those units dialed in big time. I predict you will sell the Garret 42 to put some money back in your pocket as there wont be a worth while difference.

The Garrett is the turbo that is going to end up on the car in the long run. I love the vs turbos and have them on both cars right now. I do feel like the Garrett will do better across the board. But we will see!

FAKE NEWS. The fact that it's billet doesn't matter as much as the geometry of the wheel and its blades.

If you can post some photos of that wheel it might be interesting to compare to the GTX design.

I'll take some pictures, the Garrett looks designed for function. The China dog looks more bling orientated

I wouldn't say fake news really. It being billet allows more precise and like you said different and better wheel designs. The billet wheels almost always make more power because of design changes they make from the cast versions.

I get your point though. It being billet, if of the EXACT same design as the cast unit, has no real effect on performance.

You know he is an engineer for Garrett, right?
