I just purchased one of these Thursday. Should be in Tuesday to replace my stock turbo that's on it way out the door now. Anything I should worry about? Or check before installing? Also can I run this turbo without a tune for just a week?

The one thing I can recommend is a new oil feed line. I lost a stocker about 2 years and had oil flow from the line but it was very restricted by the oil coking in the line. Better be safe then sorry.

Keep the boost below 20psi or so and it might last.

I bought one when they were first available. We just Installed a month ago with a new oil feed line and also installed a 3" downpipe. I have a stage 1 computer for the Pt's. I haven't had any problems; but it doesn't give me any more power then the stock turbo. To be honest it feels like I lost some.
With My stock turbo and the Stage 1; I could barley keep the steering wheel in my hands when I punched it from a stand still. I had almost 18lbs boost.
Now with the bws from agp it feels like a dead horse. I can't get more then 14lbs of boost. To be completely honest I don't have a lot of knowledge when it comes to turbos. So maybe there are other factors involved that I'm missing? I took it in so they could check for vacuum leaks ect.. There were none. Now don't forget I'm an idiot when it comes to this stuff and I'm not a mechanic. I just thought bigger turbo means more power? I am almost at the point where I want to put my stock one back in.
Anyways that's my experience with the AGP bws.
Cheers

Your car is trying to save itself by keeping the boost low. You need more fuel and a tune to use that turbo, you can't just drop it in.

OH, I am a noob when it comes to this stuff Where can I find info on your comment?
I have a Diablo that Skype said he would write me a tune for as soon as I give him some info on the cars doing right now. Take down some numbers.
Then he will write the tune for me for the Diablo
I wasn't even sure if I could use the Diablo on my Stage 1 computer. That's how stupid I am when it comes to this stuff but I am trying to learn on the fly here.
Thanks man!
