Soo i've gotten back in a silvia finally, and i've just bought an s14, car is intended for only drift / rare weekends.
gt3540, built bottom end, mild cams, injectors, ecu etc.
Problem is the car atm is on a run in tune and f**k me its laggy.

Question is, has anyone tried drifting on a 3540 (or a huge comparable turbo)?

Basically i have two options,
a) retune on 3540, go spastic on suspension
B) sell 3540, buy a 2871r/3071r, retune and leave suspension for now.

What suspension mods has the car already got?
Coilovers, castor rods, lsd?

Rip that shit out and put in a GTX3067R .63. There's nothing worse than lag like that.

A skilled driver could overcome the lag but if your starting out it well hold you back

currently, it has a unknown spring and shock combo and a shimmed diff.

I dont have a proper dyno sheet as the car is only running on the run in tune.
I was just thinking instead of wasting $500 on a tune just for a dyno sheet saying it makes 300rwkw of unusable power. I would be better off spending that money on a 2871r.

If its got a 3540 on there now then I'm going to assume that is high mounted on a t3 flange manifold..
Just go 3071 or 3076 .63 rear and enjoy driving a responsive setup.. GTX is just a waste of money..
Or even a Precision 5558.. roughly the same responce as 3076 but will make more power..

you will need to lift the limiter upto 8500 and run a short final drive 4.34 or higher, I found it harder after putting the TD06 on, you just have to go faster to keep it up on boost and get use to clutch kicks on slower corners.

The biggest issue I have is when it is raining, you need to go fast to stay on boost but you dont have enough grip to go fast, so you end up going slower and smashing the limiter

GTX certainly isn't a waste of money. Theory AND results have proven. I dunno why ppl still buy new GT2871Rs. Is it that ppl dig up old threads from 2006 or something?

If U already have a T3 manifold, the GTX3067R (67, not 76) with a .63 turbine housing would be rediculously responsive and still should make about 290kw at the wheels. That'd be my pick from the Garrett lineup for an SR20 drift turbo. A mate of mine has a GTX3576R which is sort of like the GTX3067R's 'big brother' on a 1J and it's awesome. It's just as responsive as the old GT3071R and makes a fair bit more power on lower boost.
