Drivability truly is just like a stock turbo. As far as EGTs go my 680hp tune will get up to 1500ish. I don't tow anything super heavy, but with the 7000lb trailers that I do pull it does great.

Honestly, the only thing I didn't like was trying to get it tuned. ATP did the tuning and after a couple of different tunes it drives MUCH better. I do believe that Mark has changed the vane plate in the turbos made after 7/1/15 to make them easier to tune. That being said, I would assume that this potential downside doesn't apply anymore.

All in all I feel like I got a lot of bang for my buck and I like how it's a drop in replacement. If you're looking for a 700hp turbo, give or take, I say go for it.
