    turbo variables

    for some reason i never knew that there was more variables to performance from forced induction besides psi, for instance i didnt know a bigger turbo will make more power than a smaller one at the same psi??!! i feel kinda stupid but this is an Epiphany to me, and i know this might be a little off topic but you guys are my friends so i feel comfortable askin u guys but would any one mind explaining these variables to me?

    Yep, enjoy your builds around here qwkgto.

    OP, call up a turbo sponsor on Tech. They will inform you on the basics better then most internet posters, myself included.
