I ordered the Stage 1. After talking to Adrian about it we decided, that for my use, the stage 1 with the new billet wheel is the way to go. Now I'm just anxiously waiting for it to get here.

According to what Adrian told me when I ordered mine, the price listed on his website for the Stage 1 w/billet wheel is high. It's actually cheaper than the $1175 they have it listed for. Now don't quote me on this because I ordered mine 3 weeks ago so things could have changed.

I have actually talked to him on 3 different occasions the last 3 weeks. Once I had to leave a message but he called back in about an hour. The other 2 times he answered. Now I didn't call any this past week tho.

I would be very surprised if I saw more than 550hp with either a Hybrid or Stage 1 (cast wheel). I think ~500-525hp (+/- 5hp) is a more realistic expectation of these turbos with a 155-175cc injector.

I optimistically disagree. I've got almost 15-20k on this set up, excluding the Atlas 80 and no issues.

You've been a tremendous help. Thanks again.

Wow, that's much higher than I was expecting and far surpasses my goals. What other mods are you thinking about being combined with the Stage 1 cast to achieve a number like that?

I'm not sure all the differences between the hybrid and the stage 1, but I'm going with what he recommended. I am excited, if it has no more lag than stock and pushes a bit more air, that works fine for me. Unless your going with much bigger injectors or a really hot tune, the stage 1 can flow plenty of air I imagine. I can't wait to get my turbo back.

Does anybody get the cast wheel? Seems like everyone goes for the billet.

The Stage 1 will only allow you to build over 500hp if you get larger than stock injectors and even then you might not make it. Of course that Atlas 80 will help. I think you'll end up in the 460-480hp range.

Seeing as my goal was 325 I'm good with that.
