Yeah but it wont last long! the standard actuators would soon go weak and then they will be loosing power.
You can make good power with a healthy standard actuator but it will soon die!  :laugh:

I would be happy with about 240bhp as im not chasing big power, Ideally I am wanting power so a nice torque line is what im looking for anything over 270lbs would be cool.

Looks like im on a hunt for a Fmic then  :smiley:

Bloody expensive things though haha

That's why I'm to replicate the ths one but on the cheap..... Just waitin for some measurements then will write a list and cost of what's needed  :wink:

was getting 192g/s with the k03s on standard actuator, mind you it had a very easy life and only 52k  :grin:

230bhp+ is possible with SMIC although heat soak is bit of an issue and probably would get more torque with a front mount.

Never got any heat soak with my smic on rollers with side mount got to be with size, quality and venting of the unit???? With smic arch MUST be vented properly.

mines doing fine and its been on the car 2yrs. previous owner fitted brand new KKK turbo and had it remaped by R-tech.
i brought a forge actuator and took the car down to rtech hoping they would fit it but after looking at it and having it on the rollers he said the oem one was fine.

What power are you pushing?
I would still personally get one as then you know you won't be loosing boost

Did have a standard SMIC with no other mods than a THS pancake replacement pipe which probably is why after ragging it felt down on power  :grin:

looks fk'in huge for an side mount that Tyrol Sport and no doubt less laggy than a front mount, how tight of a fit is it?

Need to cut out some of trim behind headlamp other than than straight fit, sits a lot lower than standard one being a lot longer. Will give you power output in 2weeks when all is fitted, finished and rollered.  :grin:
