You are correct I am the main distributor for Magnum.

A little story:
Masterpower stopped supporting the US aftermarket. They got swamped with their OEM work and simply didnt have time for us. So we got pissed and started our own line of turbos.

They are much better but they do cost a little bit more. Also we have them in ceramic ball bearing as well.

Yes [email protected] is sponsored by ModularTurbo / Magnum

He is running our T76 P trims, we are currently getting ready to let him try out the ball bearing 72's it should get interesting.

thanks for reading,
Rob

You say due to still being rearmount, Is that because of the lag associated with them? I have never done much if any research on rearmounts, but I've heard of the associated 'delay' I guess that is there....

I bet with your rear, tranny and set-up now 10's aren't out of the equation.
