    HPF offers great support and supports the community and industry better than just about anyone with their informative threads. They continually do great documentation of all their work, pretty much better than anyone .

    That said, there are other vendors who pay more here so don't think HPF has some kind of special treatment. I just really appreciate what they do.

    what i meant by ultimate 54 turbo setup is powerband. high comp built motor @18/17psi high boost map is what i've always wanted and what i initially asked hpf for before the low comp 2.5 build.

    id like to see someone try to use sport mode on a sucker like that!
    So the big turbo doesn't affect throttle response time at all?

    its relatively small... the 6766. you could go smaller but then youd suffer up top. if people think a stage 2 is sluggish they should try a 6266.
    anyway, you get all the throttle response of a NA s54 (becuause its at stock comp) plus the 6766 when it comes online. every increase per pound of pressure is felt waaaay more in the high comp s54.

    i put alot of thought into what i wanted after completing stage 2. 18-17psi on that 67mm is what i thought would be wet dream material for a street car.

    id think a 6768 would be better for a low comp s54 to insure you don't fall off up top.

    first off these are the new turbos they have been testing different from the older stage 2 kit, and anyone that thinks 700 hp on stock internals is not impressive is a dummy! I doubt it is a ticking time bomb either HPF does extensive R&D with a warranty no way it is a dud!

    I agree with you, this is how I would build it.

    I think so because stock internals can't stand so high pressure.
    Pistons are to weak for 15psi and iff pistons give up there will be increase pressure via vacum breather and oil leakage.
