Nice to know. I know the guys that built my turbo in my sig manufacture alot of the BW units alot of the racers and dealers sell/use. Might want to contact them as well. I would like to see what Mike from AWD motorsports has to say about his back to back tests where he blew 3 of them back to back to back.

I don't believe that...

I not knocking BW, they are good turbos...We just did a Hot Rod car with an S374. I've have seen more than a few cars switch from a GT4294R to a S372 and the S372 spools slower. I can't imagine the S374 spooling any faster. Im not saying its a bad thing, they are quite a bit bigger than the 4294's...It should be expected.

Well, I think I have heard wind of this... Do you know what his oil line setup was? I have heard (don't know if it was him or not... or who it was really) that someone toasted a good couple of them because they tried running the oil feed off of the head. The BWs need something like 60psi (at redline IIRC) - they need to be a -4 off of the oil filter housing or something with high enough pressure. Running them off of Evo heads will not provide them enough oil. Also, FWIW my cousin is putting a BW on his 9 now (as in.. it's mocked and they're working on the charge piping & o2), so I'm sure some in progress pictures will show up and such. The kid who put it together was mentioning possibly putting together some more kits (complete) for people if they wanted.
