Thats definitely a lot of power for the mods done. Its a pretty big turbo though. Might be a bit laggy.

I would love to see the torque curve, that will tell when it spools.

I looked at the dyno and it seems as if it doesn't have a bit of bottom end power. ehh, PASS!

low end power is overrated, unless your at the drag strip. i would much prefer medium and up to high power over real low torque, its much more versatile and streetable to have power over 4000.... I dont know about any of you guys, but i dont go around launching hard from stops all the time, but i DO gun it from a rolling start several times a day

Ditto. The car can put down sufficient torque without boost, then when it hits boost.....

I'm like this too but what if you have to wait to 3-4k for the turbo to reach full boost?
A friend of mine has a gt40ed qv30dek maxima that reaches full boost just over 3k. The lag is pretty noticeable and zzp'* turbo is bigger. Granted the 3.8 does have more displacement but the T66 probably spools later.

I guess It does really all come down when and how you want your power to come in.
I do like mid/top end but I'm not sure I like power comming on real fast at a certian rpm.

also take note. If the power comes a bit later that just means less stress on all the transmission parts. Which could be an important factor for those who do not have a rebuilt 4g tranny to drive with.
