It's a TD04. It's ####ing tiny. It's also fairly expensive to do and hard to fit in there without going with a rotated mount turbo. 15 to 30hp on what turbo??? Surely not a TD04

Ok to run.... Yes
Necessary... No

You will still have a gain, but not what you would see on a bigger turbo.

The info on TurboXS's website does not list specifics on the turbo used for their information.

And expensive! You're underestimating how costly it is because existing piping needs to be changed.

Since reading through this I have been trying to readup about preferences and the pros and cons. It seems like a decent setup, especially with helping hold boost and all. But like stated everyone say how loud it is. Is there a way to not have it as loud possiby?

**Sorry for jacking the thread**

Well Mosc, I'm sure you have heard THIS before.... It's not the size that counts !Laugh!

Wonder if anyone has tried it on a td04. I will be going w/the 18g or 20g anyways next year possibly. So.......

He was running one of the TurboXS EWG kits. I will have to try to track down what the actual gain was. Sorry I forgot to mention that he did this on a TD04.

Yes.It can just be pipe back into the downpipe.I think some companies might already make a kit that comes with a modified downpipe.I know I have seeen them on alot of the rotated kits.Alot of states/counties/townships will not allow you running a straight pipe of the wastegate,especially if you are required to have catalytic convertors/emmisions.You won't pass state inspection in those areas and the cops can/will issue tickets.

you can put the EWG on ANY turbo you want....but the bigger it is...the bigger the advantages are...on my td04 it helped with spool and helped hold boost. on my 20g....i cant really compare to IWG since the EWG was already there...but it holds whatever boost i want all the way to redline...and yes its illegal to have on the car here in Texas, as it will fail state inspection had i of not fixed all the CEL's with enginuity. and i def dont go WOT when im next to a cop...it is basically an exhaust dump if u need to know how loud it is....people roll up their windows when i drive next to them :-D

Thanks for that input Dumdum. I plan on eventually running an 18G or 20G, just would like to get the most out of my setup. I will keep searching and reading.

So does my $12 GM boost solenoid. The advantages are definatly with the bigger turbos but you can't compare to the stock solenoid setup when there are much cheaper alternatives that do the same.Any 3 port solenoid with a good tune will allow for much quicker spoolup and better boost control.
