I have been thinking of getting a turbo here latley and was looking on ATS' website and the A3000 caught my eye, it seems good for me good up to 575HP and great for towing and good spool, has anyone ran one and what was your thoughts on i? What kind of boost #'s?

Thanks guys

Chad:thumbsup

Like ATS says 42psi is about right for that turbo, most aftermarket turbos are in the same 40-45psi range. Any more and the drive pressure starts to cut into your hp

575hp is generous without N20. Possible but it will be hot there. With a common rail I would look into something with atleast a 62mm compressor inducer and 71mm turbine wheel. A CR has no problem daily driving and light towing with 64/71-14s

What I don't like about ATS' turbos is they aren't wastegated. I think every turbo used in a single application should be wastegated. But thats just my opinion.

The A3000 would work good as a secondary in twins and spool awesome. Might work good with your truck now, but once you add some fuel it will be to small

Ive been running one for about six or seven months and havent had any trouble with it. It doesnt put out quite what i want but does ok. i havent seen as much boost since i put in the banks innercooler around 35 to 38 psi. wot. it seems to spool up quick though. just my opion though. Im wanting to get the 5000 and run the twins.:popcorn:

It is a good turbo....fast spool....good low and mid....not much for top end....and definitely not enough once you start to push the fuel to it.....won't keep the egt's down.....I have it in the compound setup and it is perfectly matched with the 5000....dont know if it would support 575 that is pushing it.....maybe 400-425.....but if you are doing light mods it should work well...it would fully support level 5 on an edge....but not level 6.

What did your egt's do after you installed the Banks CAC?
