Re: turbo combinations

well so you have more than spam to look at here's an answer, what does your engine redline at? because a smaller turbine will be able to spin up the compressor easier at lower engine RPM, so if you have a higher redline, use a larger turbine, lower redline (like for economy cars) keep the entire turbo small, and increase the compressor slightly if more power is desired, that's what i usually do when i mess with turbo's

Re: turbo combinations

So do you want a small turbo to feel like a big turbo and spool up really slowly? No.

And do you want a giant, heavy turbo to barely provide any boost? No.

You should usually hit "Performance" for a pre-selection. It provides a good template, Then you can give the turbo more or less size depending your preference.
