Kinugawa turbo's (kando) comparison.

Recommended Posts

Ok there have been some great results from these cheaper turbos but the sellers need to get their act together.

The info on their websites seems very poor.

 

I found this chart which show a bit more about the turbo's efficiency range.

 

They all seem to claim 350hp-450hp. But surly some will be better suited to the sr20 than others.

My goal is around 240-270kw, Wanting full boost around 4000rpm. (response is more important to me than power)

 

which would be the pick or the bunch, a larger TD05, or smallest TD06?

leaning towards the TD05-20g

TD05-18G will make around 240kW. Its pretty much a T518z

 

I bought a TD06SL2-20G hoping to make around 260-270kW mark.

whats the difference between the td06 and td06sl?

 

Judging by the turbo chart... Not much. Seem to flow roughly the same.

I think the SL has a differnt style compressor wheel with less blades.

I have one of these cores in greddy housings. TD06 20g 8cm on SR with poncams 550s z32. On a mainline dyno it Makes 230kw on 16psi with 550nm and on 19psi it makes 245kw with 620nm on a hell safe tune and stock motor. Built motor and 22psi should see 280 pretty easy I recon

Guessing your injectors were the weakest link there, what the response like?

going to get a retune in a few months with 740cc and change the std exhaust manifold to a tomei expreme and 25psi hopeing for 250rwkw+

From what Ive been reading

 

the SL2 has a different rear wheel, turbine wheel. They changed it to increase response but the TD06H will give you more top end.

 

The compressor wheels are all 20G so they are the same. From reading the TD06SL2 with the Garrett 60-1 wheel will flow more, but I don't know of anyone who has used this.

From looking at this chart and from what jarred was saying that the td05 18g, is the same as a t518z, would it be a good responsive set up?

I'm only chasing 220-240rw but want as much response as possible. Will be with bc stage 2 cams and s15 injectors (at the moment anyway will get bigger injectors for it's full tune)

 

Thanks

Ok So I have narrowed it down to 2 turbos and done some research on both.

 

1) TD06-SL 20g. (350hp-420hp) or 313kw

 

Compressor: 52.5mm / 68 mm

turbine: 54.1 / 61mm

 

2) TD06-SL 18g (300hp-400hp) or 298kw

 

Compressor: 50.3mm / 68mm

Turbine: 54.1mm / 61mm (obviously the same)

 

Only difference being the 2.2mm smaller Inducer on the 18g.

 

I'm amusing the 18g will make slightly less power with more response.

But how minimal do you think the difference would be?

 

any thoughts?

18g will be perfect for you then.

 

Trent from Status tuning just tuned a SR with td06sl2-20g and it made 301rwkw @ 19psi with 264 hks cams

td05 18g is "pretty much a T518z"

get the TD06SL2-20G man, no point going the 18G. It would be more responsive to go the TD05-18G. Just make sure its 8cm² the 10cm² is too big.

Talked me into it Jarryd, 20g it is. Sick of procrastinating. =p

 

How you going with yours? Any fittment issues.

get the SL2 if you want response.

 

Fitted it all up. Fits perfect on the stock manifolds.

 

it was the 20g not the 18, this is the third one of these i have seen first hand crack 300 on less than 20psi, if someone is after a cheap turbo that actually performs these are it.

I am going to do a bit more testing on a few units in the coming months on built enignes to see what they can do on some descent fuel and another 2-5psi

Was that on 98 or E85 Donny?

has there been any confirmation on the difference between the td06 with the -61 garret wheel and the version without it. they are the same price to buy either one that's all.

From the info i gathered, The 20g compressor wheel is tried and tested, seems to have great results when paired with the td06 turbo

The 60-1, on the td06 has not, Maybe this wheel is more suited to a bigger exhaust wheel?

 

anyway there have been people achieving over 300kw with the td06- 20g, so i recon its the pick of the bunch.

I dont wanna steal the thread Luke but what do you reckon would be good for a 1jz?

 

Ive had a look on ebay at the turbos and i think this one might be best suited: Ebay Link

 

Guys lemme know what you think? Would i be better off with the 10cm ex housing or the 12cm one?
