What Is better for The Goat Turbo Or a blower, and which is cheaper or better bang for the buck.
Here is a Twin Turbo from APS, My choice would be a maggie,I'm glad this topic got brought up... I've been talking to a guy at a speed shopt about what is better. He said he's leary of puting any kind of forced induction on an engine w/ the LS2's high compression ratio. He recommened a Procharger over anything else if I decided to go that way, but said he could get me about 500 rwhp naturally aspirated.
Aside from STS, are there any other turbo set ups available?
Find another shop. Times have changed, engine controls have gotten better, etc. if they still think that, they are stuck in the stone age . There are several people running boosted LS2's and quite a few of us running 10 psi +. Yes, it is *slightly* harder to tune than boosting a low compression motor, but find a boost compression calculator and you will see that even 10 psi on an 10.9:1 motor is 18.31:1- lower overall static compression than the say 21 psi used on a low compression 8.5:1 turbo motor- 20.64:1 at sea level. Check out this link and play around with some numbers- http://www.rbracing-rsr.com/compression.htm , pretty nice tool I have used with several turbo motors just playing around. Reliability is all in the intercooling and tune.I'm glad this topic got brought up... I've been talking to a guy at a speed shopt about what is better.
