Why I picked the GT35R for my RX-7 over the stock twin turb
I cover the basics of turbochargers in
simple terms to explain why I chose the GT35R over T04Z or T78 or T88 etc.
It's all about air flow. Sure there are technologies that make the turbo more efficient in more applications but
the turbo is most efficient in an area
known as the compressor map.
Exhaust back pressure plays a huge
part when dealing with quick spool small turbos.
Large turbos deal with spool up and lag
I chose the GT35r for near stock spool up with more efficient 400 hp
