It hasn't been mentioned in a long time, but the gt2876r was considered a mismatched wheel. Does the gtx suffer the same issue, and will the factory surge compressor housing help? I've read some promising reviews of the gtx2867r, just wondering about the gtx2871r.

Ryan Flynnr ran one in his, but hasn't been active here in a long while. He is local to me so I could text him or something if you want. You can try sending a pm his name is flynnr

isnt that what rodgerabbit or whatever runs on his pag parts setup?

Pretty sure Flynnr ran a FP HTA 2871r, so maybe similar comparison.

That would be correct, but I'm sure its damn near the same thing

Yep GTX2867r with Tial SS Vband Housing. Driving it does not feel like a mismatch. Tons of Torque and spool is good on stock hardware Its not a top end dyno queen thats for sure but I love the drivability.

Same size wheels but the wheels are completely different, the GTX full blade won't spool up nearly as quick as the HTA 6/6 blade but both should make the same amount of peak hp.

I bought Ryan's turbo from him, it ran amazingly until it blew.

Mike, do you think the billet 71r wheel will surge like the 76 wheel? Why didn't the hta wheel surge?

That I don't know. I know people that have ran the HTA2868 complained about surge when not running a anti-surge compressor housing. Does the GTX2876 surge on the 1.8t even though it has a anti-surge compressor housing?
