II stage 1 VGT

Last week I installed my II stage 1 Vgt.

Here is somewhat of a comparison on a stage 1 with stock injectors.

At 70mph with cruise on there is no difference at all temps are all the same, the difference
seems to come when its under load I noticed a 50* drop in Egts when pulling hills with cruise on

At WOT it seems to have a little more pull off the line, but the biggest gain has been
the drop in EGTs at WOT.
With the stock turbo I could easily peg my 1600* pyro on a W/o run to 80mph, it used to hit 1600 and then
once it shifted to o/d it would drop back down to about 1400*.

Last night I never saw above 1450* and once in o/d it dropped back down to 1300-1350*

I also found out that a boot blowing off can make you wet yourself.....lol.

How is the response of the Stage 1 from a stop compared to stock? Overall driving impressions?

It seems to spool a little faster than my stock turbo did and it seems to react quicker to pedal changes....but really I am most happy with the EGT drop....
It seem to be a really good "plug and play" unit...I am happy that I chose to swap my stock one out.
At this point I really dont see anything negative about this turbo (other than the installation).

I can easily say I would recomend this turbo over a stock reman....
