We're back!

If you haven't noticed already, we have been offline for a few weeks after our server failed catastrophically. Fortunately, that is now behind us and we were able to recover all data, except for one day of posts. We took this opportunity to migrate to a new server and upgrade all of our software and systems. After much painstaking work, this process is finally complete. Many thanks must go to forum founder Steyr for coming out of retirement to help make this happen and thanks of course to forum users for their patience and support.

We are excited to announce that we are now running on the latest version of phpBB forum software which means better performance, security and many enhanced features. We have also implemented a number of extra modifications to offer you an even better user experience.

Read all about the changes HERE and let us know if you experience any issues.

Enjoy and long live AusRotary!

I know the Dysons are using a massive precision promod turbo on their billet semi pp R100, but that's hardly a comparison to a street application. They have great results.

At the time i was looking at EFRs on the interwebs, it seemed all the skyline people were making big noises how the 6262? or whatever the equivalent size to 8374 is, was making more power and spooling earlier than efr, and there were dyno graphs and youtube videos and all. I dont know if that turbo just works better on RB26 and 25's than EFR or if its all bullshit, because it seems unlikely anything should be able to out-spool an efr with a turbine wheel with half the mass of anything else, all things being equal.

Ok it seems all the controversy on various forums i encountered were based on this guy's one back to back of an EFR8374 1.05ewg vs a precision 6266 CEA (billet) with single scroll .83. The precision has a bigger compressor, I think the turbines are similar size, but the housings are like two sizes different. Not really apples and apples. Also the dyno doesnt show what transient response is like.

I have a Bridgeport rew with a 6266. It comes on early and provides good clean boost from 3.5. I can't comment on how it compares to other turbos unfortunately but 5k kms into build its been faltless.
