A set of 19Ts is basically maxed out at 650whp a single can have as much headroom as you want it or hit any # you want assuming you have the fueling to do so. Just size your turbo correctly for your application. A 6266 for example is larger than you want it you really ONLY want 650whp. Twins are not known for being very reliable and now there are cast top and bottom mounts so why bother?

Out of curiosity where did you come up with the 650whp #?

I hope to be doing the same (as you) next week and I am also wanting the same power level, I am planning to go with a pair of DAW Flow Max+ turbos with all the supporting mods.

You can buy a single turbo for that cost...and DAW is still using stolen warranty language ;) . Remember this is the guy who refused to let me visit his shop when I was going to be in town. Business was/is run out of his shitty condo. Does not balance his turbos himself. Fake balancing sheets, etc. Just another Chinacast 19T. https://www.spoolstreet.com/threads/daw-turbos.5731/

Hello again, I do appreciate your attempts to warn and edify others, but I read through that entire thread and most of it is about a scammer named Nick Olsom, a person who I do not know and will never know. The thread is dated 2019!............ is any of the information relevant anymore? I have been looking around other forums and YouTube and in 2022 all I see about the DAW turbos are GREAT things! you can't ignore Alex the Russian, zero to 60 and others, is it at all possible that they (DAW) have upped their game and evolved into something better bring a better product to market since then? I am aware that a single kit may be comparable in cost and less complex but....... I am RHD here (not in the US) and single under mount kits are not known to fit out of the box, I do not like the top mount set ups and I would like to keep the twin turbo OEM configuration just with more potency, this is why I am leaning this way.

Personally after my experience with trying to get my turbos warrantied by Shawn i couldn't buy from him again. Friends had the same experience along with basically everyone. If you really want to stick to twins i recommend the RB gamefinshers. I've gone single turbo now and haven't looked back since, used reflex to control boost and it all works like oem. Power comes in smooth, tc works like factory, and plus cars stupid fast : )

Alex the Russian aka Glassreflections never came off as smart...he got laughed off the forums. He fucked up his N54 being an idiot and went LS turbo last I heard. IIRC it was just a gutted auto with china twins on PI. Just watch the video of his shop installing the solid metal subframe bushings, it is comical.

Zero to 60...I like the guy's content, generally, but he is now living in his sister's spare bedroom, broke, no savings, no job, got arrested with charges pending I believe, they took his laptop/cameras etc. as evidence, and his car is very likely to get crushed by the police. My point is he didn't make great decisions in his life. Also, I am willing to bet he got deals on many if not all the products he reviewed, which makes me really question his bias. Again, I enjoy his content but I also take it with a grain of salt.

is it at all possible that they (DAW) have upped their game and evolved into something better bring a better product to market since then?
Has VTT improved at all over the years? MMP? Ghassen? AJ Hoti at EMP? The list goes on of shoddy shitty N54 vendors. They started off as shit and still are shit. It's the perfect con in my opinion. The cost of the crap products is too low to bother getting lawyered up. Too hard to start a class action.

Of all of the twin vendors RB seems to have the best rep, and he is not perfect ether. At the end of the day stuff the largest T4 wheels into a T3 housing and spinning them like crazy to make 650whp reliability is always going to be a concern.

Remember with DAW your warranty is void if you don't have an aftermarket exhaust! Because Shawn is an idiot and knows nothing about the n54 platform. Guy is still using stolen warranty language from a UK tuning company on his website, that would take all of 5 minutes to fix if he actually cared about the 'warranty' he provides his customers, or should I say the lack of any warranty. DAW was using fake balancing sheets as well IIRC. After all the horrible things written about DAW and personal experiences given to you still want to go with that company???

If you want to roll the dice buy the 'gen 3' VIV 19Ts on amazon for 1k and throw on the protection plan: 4-Year Auto Accessory Protection Plan for $114.99.

Whatever twins you buy, unless from RB, get them sent out to be balanced and upgrade the wastegate and set the wategates correctly.
