Do you have any more specs on the turbos. A tip gauge and a primary boost gauge will help set the wasgegate.

stick with the 90's, there an awesome all around tip.im a little over 700 with them, and really look into a modded cp3 instead of the Arson,unless you really dont intend to go over 600

not sure what a tip gauge is???

i do not have a primary boost and i need to get one....

and as far as size...i dont have the paperwork in front of me and i cant remember the numbers but the little turbo is something like 62/65/12ss and the big one is 74/76/22 or something like that

well bigger injectors will ultimately be better with them but 90's should do,they spin my set instantly, then again my top charger is smaller then most, but is lethal lol:hehe:.im curious to see how your set up runs:thumbsup:

so far so good.... it spools a little better than stock and pulls harder through the rpm range... and my egts went down like 250 deg. im not all that impressed with the power gains though, i thought it would be better! maybe with some 120's it will be better


p.s. how do you like the tnt tune onthe smarty? whould i consider downloading that?

TIP is the pressure between the cylinders and the secondary turbo. AKA drive pressure. You want drive pressure to be about 1 to 1 with total boost pressure. With those turbos under 700 hp you probably dont need a TIP gauge You shouldnt have any problem with those chargers and 90s. Im with mulisha 90s will get you to your goal and beyond, the wont be near as smokey, and they will get better milage. So unless your hoping for lots more power stick with the 90s.

Your not seeing the performance you had hoped for because you dont have enough fuel. Your stocker was keeping up pretty well. No if you had more fuel before you went to twins from a stock turbo you would be much more impressed. Even my oldschool setup is sweet compaired to a big single or stocker.

Its always good to know but you dont need it. A primary boost gauge is nice to make sure that your not overwrorking the secondary and that they are both within there maps. I suggest the primary boost gauge first, and if you go further with your fueling add the TIP. I like overkill an knowing all that I can about whats going on.

No you should be fine without one. There just another tool for tuning. You dont have to go back to stock to switch to tnt
