Ptuning can we get an update on the number of deposits made? Any cheaper journal bearing turbo alternatives for those on a budget?

I've read so much good about the GTX3576 that I want it, but also don't want to be forced to run 18psi on a stock motor. Although if that's ok when running E85, then maybe it will be fine.
Creep happens because of WG placement, its position was chosen to make the package work in the S2000 engine bay. You can reduce creep by creating a restriction in the exhaust. PTuning offers a solution with the restriction discs. Otherwise you can go with a smaller exhaust housing, but power higher in the rpm will suffer. You can also choose to have a restrictive catback (stock has been proven to work). Recirculating the wastegate should technically create MORE creep due to it being more restrictive than a open dump.

Here is my recommendation for anybody who wants to buy a ptuning kit. Buy the kit with the gtx3076 gen 2 paired the the TiAL 0.82 exhaust housing and deal with lower 400s being your lowest power level. Don't worry about creep.

DO NOT try the GTX3576.

Any feedback for other mods for tracking? Wondering if 255s will be enough or if that much power will overpower the tires.

@Ptuning will you ever be testing the GTX3576 on your turbo kit at all?

sticky 255s are ok but you might want wider.

I recommend numerical display gauges for oil temp, oil pressure, coolant temp. Rain h8r VC mod, oil pan baffle, th motorsports spec fx350 clutch (encapsulated clutch springs and will hold 400+wtrq).
to name a few items...

So far we only have (5) turbo kit deposits collected, but we decided to have the production on the manifolds started already! No journal bearing turbo options are currently offered yet.

We just haven't had the opportunity to have one in house for tuning yet and our s2000 is still in pieces. We've seen best results with the GTX3076 with the .82 exhaust housing. I know we've shipped out a few kits previously with the GTX3576 though, but we didn't perform the tuning so we don't have dyno graphs to provide.
