    If they are balanced properly they are pretty good assuming your not running them hard.
    Problem is getting once thats been built correctly.

    Thanks

    How do we know if they are balanced well.

    What in your opinion is hard? 14 to 15psi okay?

    How do the kinugawa turbos rate these days?

    Generally I hear that they arenít bad enough to be a massive liability.

    Both my brother and I have been running Mamba turbos on 13BT landcruisers for several years, other than them recommending some stupid sizes, no actual issues in service.
    Don't worry, thats just the self-preservation instinct, in my experience you can safely ignore it.

    Doctor Diesel Tuned it .

    Heaps more power!. Way better response than the factory HT18.
    Though turbo diesel tuning is all about the fuel and pre boost fuel is loaded up it always goes better.

    Im running 23 psi now. Factory Ht18 was running 15 if that.

    Spins the 36 inch much easier now too and the fuel consumption is the same!

    One happy camper. $1100 turbo plus bits and bobs of intake piping.

    Glad it went well for you, I need to pull my finger out and swap in the 12 blade (currently 9 blade) turbine wheel into mine.

    pretty much like going to a smaller exhaust housing, so more shaft RPM for a given volume of flow but also more restrictive.

    Am I likely to be disappointed upgrading my ht18 if I am only planning on running 12-15psi? Td42ti

    I promise you its way better than the ht18 in all aspects. quicker response, more boost, at same boost better power, Run way more boost.

    Apparently my model can run 30 psi all day everyday if I had the 12mm pump.

    I am spinning the 35 inch tyres and steel wheels up the hills on highway with a car full load and aircon easier.

    Before HT18 turbo and 15psi I had to keep dropping gears until honestly I was on 2nd gear smoking away holding on. Was so embarrassing.

    I get about 13-14L per 100km. Closer to 13 highway and closer to 14 light town duty always taking it easy 1,200-2,300 rpm. Everything is bone stock including tyre size. Light weight ute with alloy tray and bullbar.

    It feels like it's got a narrow power band from about 1,600 to 2,500 rpm. Super lazy below 1,600. Cold it's a bit more lively down low so it must have pretty retarded injection timing for NOx once it's warm I reckon. I feel like intercepting the temp signal to the pump control module.

    It the turbo is direct swap I'll seriously consider it. I've seen 16g and 18g discussed. What would be the go for a more mild setup?
