I am hoping to get some pictures, and feedback to make sure we do not have to make any changes, if we do we will implement those, and the RHD GC's will be ready for public consumption. This means GC lites, GC's, and GC+ will all fit RHD as these are modular all using the same housing. Almost there guys!
More good news for RHD market. Thanks guys.

Looks like Nizpro will be the first with 500KW in Australia, Simon emailed me last night that they made the equivalent of 684WHP at 27 psi with our GC turbos, and their tranny upgrade. Safe to say the GC's are doing what their name suggests, and changing the game...

RR700 have proved to be the highest reading modded stock frames with publicly released figures of 435rwkw (583hp), then add another 12-15% for dynojets, approximately. These are Kents turbos and they are going well.

As per my previous post the next 6 months will see big platform change here in Oz as our motors have started to give under the high HP loads. Lots of cars in workshops being rebuilt.
Are all these RB turbos referred to the "classic" RB's? My understanding is that the RB Next Gen turbos are significantly more reliable?

Before you make false claims and start leading people on, I'd like to point out that Simon said that the 684hp is what it would read if it was on a US dyno, which would be 510kw. He didn't say that's his actual number.

Unfortunately, we don't use high reading US dynos in Australia and our dynos read on average 15% less. If this is the case, then the figure would only be 433kw. I am the person mentioned previously who made 435kw. Naturally, 15% isn't a definite number and can vary a lot.

This all speculative and the only thing we need to see is proof on an Aussie dyno that has numbers past 500kw.

Regardless, I think the turbos will go way past 435kw, but probably not 500kw. Either way, these GCs look like they'll be the go to turbos for those chasing bif numbers and fast times, along with the Nizpro tranny upgrade. Already have my name down for one, can't wait!

Not to start the old dyno argument again -but what dyno do you guys use? Might be helpful for those that are unfamiliar with your practices if they differ significantly from ours.

Most of the big dyno numbers are from the same workshop Advan Performance in Sydney here Chris. It's a Dynodynamics dyno which as far as we understand reads 15% or so lower than Dynojet. Would be great to understand the actual difference back to back on same car so we can compare apples for apples.

Most tuners here use a Dyno dynamics or a mainline dyno. The mainlines read even less than DD but they are a great dyno for tuning.

no dynojets in sydney at all? i found one in perth, only one in WA as well as far as i could tell. there are a lot of bike dynojets around, if you contact the dynojet distributor in australia they might tell you where the automotive ones are located.

Guys,

Had to delete the last give posts. I don't want this site to turn in to a crap-fest. Take the personal stuff to email, facebook, or somewhere else. On this site please act professional or at least pretend to be. If you want to talk **** about a competitor that's your business but do it in a classy way.
