2008 WRX GT3071R Dyno Test and Tune

Besides building a fast and cool looking 2008 WRX, we had a goal to showcase a turbo that I think should be the most popular for the normal guy thinking of a turbo kit for his 2.5L Turbo motor. The GT3071R!  This turbo gets overlooked quite often.  It easily makes 350WHP on an STI, and on race fuel/Water injection 400WHP can also be had easily.  The GT3076R (the more popular turbo) is also good for these numbers, but can easily […Continue Reading…]
