It was great all around. I could run 75+ in 5th and maintain it up reasonably long grades in west Texas. On relatively flat ground I could hold speed in 6th. It would keep speed in 6th with some extra throttle, but the EGTs would get up around 1300 pretty quickly, so I usually downshifted to 5th for any grade.

What are the benefits of the "highflow" vanes" that are offered with this turbo?

About the only thing I know about turbos is they force air in the engine but I just spent like 30 mins on YouTube watching videos of this thing. Damn it sounds whicked!
