I was talking about power. The spool is less of an issue for me because I personally think that most spool too fast. Constantly in boost while cruising.

I easily stay in vacuum for 90% of my daily driving. Also, there is no tendency for this turbo to unintentially lightswitch into boost - its very proportional to throttle position.

I would rather spool a little slower and make more power out the top. My 2.4 has plenty of grunt for down low drivability and once it comes into boost it is a whole different animal. Although rolling on it in 5th gear an whooping people is fun on the highway. It also does mountains with ease. If the stock Turbo didn't spool so stupid fast we could have gotten cruise control! Hahaha.

2.4L is another story. You're a good candidate for the FP single scroll Green or Red, especially if you are looking for top-end power.

Since I'm near at the front of the queue for one, I'll definitely pick it up, study it, and then if I decide I don't want to install it, I'm sure I can sell it for exactly what I paid for it.

I wish. Between ER's schedule and mine, the first opening is two weeks from today.

That's crazy spoolup for the 3b on a 2.0 ltr , I hit 33 psi by like 4700-4800 rpm which is probably better for me since I'm still running a stock block/ internals. At what rpm did you start your pull, like 3000 rpm? Also would the e85 help spool up a little?

I hit the throttle at 2500 rpm. I think the difference is MIVEC+S2 vs no MIVEC+S3. The S2s are amazing for getting into boost at lower rpms.
