    They are quite the sight for sure! I don’t regret mine for an instant!

    Couple them with a dual feed intake and the noises will get you all hot and bothered.

    Oh they did... On the exhaust and intake side... I LOVE how my setup sounds...

    Under load with the new intake the GH turbos sound similar to when Mel Gibson turns on his supercharger in MadMax...

    You actually hear the turbos spinning up and down throw the intake very clearly..

    The exhaust sounds really really good with the EPP catted DP, Corsa, and upgraded turbos.. Matt reworked the exhaust side of the turbos quite a bit to free up the exhaust side so it lets more sound through...

    You won’t be disappointed...

    Wonder if the corsa helped the sound along too with the turbos?

    I’m sure, it opened the exhaust more.

    Car is running well and the sounds are wonderful. Not pulling as hard as I would have expected but going to get a log to Matt after putting a few miles on it to see if something can be done if there isn't any improvement. I can't access E85 consistently so can only run a gas tune.

    Bigger turbos need more fuel and octane

    Certainly Matt should send you a revised tune for the TU. I was advised from my tuner AJP Turbo not to drive around much after TU and certainly not to get on it UNTIL we started tune revisions. Basically I drove it slow and curious home from the shop. If not meth or e30 you'll be missing out for sure on additional power, and if you don't have an upgraded HPFP.

    But as far as turbos are concerened, you're basically done. These hogs will be on a tight leash with the stock motor/trans. With that said it's hard to say how much power you (can) gain with these turbos as they are too powerful to put on full blast.
