    By proven performance are you referring to peak hp numbers? What specific models are you comparing?

    I disagree, approaching 500 whp and beyond trades off too much. In the ballpark of 400 whp is a better street car on U.S. roads.

    That's entirely subjective. Ive done the 400whp street car for the better part of 10 years.... The 500+whp street car is just a different flavor of fun.

    ^Well, That certainly depends on a lot of factors..

    Being an owner of 300, 400 and 500whp cars I have to say the 500 will definitely run out of road quick but:

    I wouldn't worry about that, or worry about steel main caps either for a 500whp/600chp motor.

    Cool dude. It's been sitting in my garage for 10 yrs, lol.
    Never used.
    I'm near certain that it is kkk. Let me double check the flange.

    This.

    I have had multiple 300 whp, 350whp, 420whp cars. The 420whp was a load of fun. But like most cars got a little bit boring after a while.

    If I lived in Colorado I would tune my car to 420whp too, mr. funny man.

    Thanks for the info. I have been reading that the stock mains were pretty strong. Is it the rods that are the weaker link?

    780's done right will crack your block......unless you are only running them at 80% potential..........you will learn.....the hard and $$$ way.

    What's needed to have a build 'done right' with the 780's?

    Rods aren't a 'weak link', they are a supporting mod

    I'd like to see some more info on this. Sounds like you had a failure or know of one?
    If this was a common issue, I think there would be more information on this topic considering the age of the platform at this point?
    Certainly a worn out cap or cap reinstalled improperly could make something bad happen, but that's true for any part of the motor I guess..

    I do know of at least 2 shop-owner 'no expense spared' 770 builds where the stock caps were used.

    Stock rods are the weak link of a stock block. They should probably be the first thing upgraded if you're looking for more than 475wtq. There are plenty of car making 500+ whp on stock block with the torque curve tuned to be later and more liniar

    Ordered a set of the TTE600's today from USP. Should be a few weeks. I'll post some pics when they are received.

    if you can afford id honestly go TTE780+ there just are no downside really but offer great power advantage and can give better driverbilty over TTE600 with more torque in lower RPM


    Good example is below:

    Boost log kindly shared by Kemal Mocke

    Direct comparison of a rs4 b5 2.7 (9.0-1 CR) on stock RS6 turbos vs TTE780

    Same engine, same road, same near conditions and same fuel.

    As you see it backs up my telling all spool is great and not laggy at all. Reinforces why we dropped TTE700..

    What inlets are the best to use with the TTE's?
