I read briefly, but i saw stratified announced that they r making a hybrid w Garrett internals and a custom tune package
That would be the safer bet, waiting to see what Strat comes up with.

I'm still a pay to play guy, and rather have a proven turbo manufactured(which hopefully is what strat is doing) then roll the dice on a hybrid.

Guess what happens when the cold side wheel fails? Motor damage. People saving a few bucks initially, are gambling a lot more money with their cars. Just how I look at it.

yea it seems like garrett is making the turbo so its going to be a safer, more reliable turbo, prob around 320whp on 93 octane. it will get slightly less hp than pwnall or turbobay but you get the reliability.

Would be interested to see how it would perform with E85 straight. The stock turbo spins up really quick with it.

I think you may have misread that. They didn't say they are making a hybrid, but that the will be offering the new Garrett drop-in turbo, and bundling it with custom tunes. Saying that they should be able to make mid 300s with ethanol.

If they can make 350 with WMI and essentially stock spool speed, I will be on that band wagon so fast. I wanted a MRX6258 to push 350 and the fastest spool speed but if this is priced in the 1300ish range I'll be the first to buy it.

I have also contemplated a hybrid from TPC, the price is right, would just like to benefit from someone else's experience first, someone else who has more time and money for trial and error :)

They post a lot on IG so I’ll assume they’re a good reputable company?

Any updates on either TPC or this turbobay turbo? Considering sending in the turbo i took off my car and saw today on turbobays website they have a new wheel option for the turbo, says race only but its a 50/52 upgrade. 52mm turbine and 50mm compressor. Wouldnt that be really bad with how our turbos are designed?

I talked to the folks at GPopShop quite extensively about upgrading the turbo in our cars and it can be done but it really depends on what your goals are. If I remember correctly the cost was about $900 and the horsepower would be around 325 with proper tuning and supporting mods. I decided that if I was going to spend half as much as a big turbo kit for 325 hp I might as well pony up another $1000 and be able to get to 400 hp or so. YMMV it really depends on what you're looking for.
