Lets see some of the original buyer chime in. Kind of sucks hearing of some one with the new and improved when some of us have been waiting for 2 months for this to work the way it should.
Ok Aaron, so how should the turbo work since you are the expert here?? I'm not covering the past. I can tell you that the Hybrid has a compressor wheel in it that is both lighter and has larger blades in it to grab more air than the Stage 2 does, furthermore compressor housing size has little to no impact on the airflow potential of the wheel. So with those two facts in place, this turbo has no choice but to spool quicker than the Stage 2 and at worst should be only nominally slower than the stock turbo (fancy way of saying that the user wont be able to notice). Now we can argue about this all day because I wasn't there to experience your truck first hand. Neither was I able to verify the setup of the motor or anything else for that matter (not calling you a liar or anything just saying that there are A LOT of variables that have to be considered here). Lastly, the mod that Adrian does was NOT required to get adequate performance from his turbos. I made over 600hp with a stock turbo tune, which means that the turbo naturally produced 44psi of boost because the back pressure was kept within the range that the ECM liked and this was without the mod. The mod was simply done to get just a LITTLE bit more performance out of the turbo to get all that is available. Bottom line here is that folks are in deed having good experiences with the Hybrid and that is all that matters. Like I said, I can't explain why you experienced what you did, but I know that this turbo has the potential for greatness just as much as my truck has the potential for 600+hp. So call BS all you want and think what you will, but just as you think the first rep was deserved, I think it is important that the rep I made was also deserved. For all I know, you could have been expecting more from the turbo than was possible. Also, you are being worked with to get you a turbo that will meet your expectations, which is more than you can say about any other turbo seller.
