Not knocking Kerma but there seems to be LOT of "outs" for denying warranty claims.
From Kerma.com
Quote:
Warranty requirements : Proof of Qualified Professional Installation and Tuning, Boost and EGT Gauges, New Oil Lines , Correct Oil, Oil Analysis Records, Proper Operation and Maintenance. Warranty is 1 year 12,000miles
(Full disclosure)--- I personally try to buy from all the vendors on this site and not pigeon hole myself with using only one vendor. Just saying, so I'm not labeled a Kerma-Basher. I actually bought my nozzles from Kerma and had them balanced also by him( Kerma/DBW). Transaction was smooth and painless.

If I am looking for around 200hp should i go with a small margin of safety with a vnt 17/22 (210hp) or the next turbo up (GT2052V-220hp) to avoid running it close to its max? Didn't know how much that would matter
Someone correct me on this if I am wrong (not that I have to ask, LOL) Just FYI, I think on that side of the pond the HP numbers are estimated crank HP, where we North Americans measure HP at the wheels. So when Darkside's chart shows a VNT17 is good for 200 HP and it is commonly advertised up to 170 here, that is why.

Also, according to that chart a 17 will spool faster than a 17/22, which seems to defy the whole point of the hybrid. GTB1756Vk not spooled until 2,600 RPM? That would seem unnaceptably laggy to me, but that turbo is supposed to be all the rage.

Sounds like nothing more than a 17/22 with a billet wheel with those extended exducer fins on the compressor wheel.

Not sheeple sorry. I'm sick of your 2 cents that doesn't benefit anyone except your ego. S7 is borgwarners answer to the vnt17 nothing more. We all know you have a 17/22... you must feel so proud of yourself. Anything above s7/vnt17 means exponentially more money.

I don't need to stroke my own ego. I'm simply here to lay the facts out, if you don't like it, go cry in the corner. BTW, I don't have a 17/22, not to sure where you dreamed that up. We see people defending the vendor they've purchased parts from all the time, enjoy your time with the herd.

How good of an idea do the 150 hp complete kits from Kerma sound? Anyone used one? Since im trying to get alot of work done in a little amount of time would this kit (with southbend endurance clutch, hot swap for injectors and upgrade to the s7) be a decent idea?\\http://www.kermatdi.com/servlet/Detail?no=8487

I was running compounds, for a total investment of $100.
Be $130 once I get the engine back together, the 140k mile VNT-15's bearings were a bit worn for my tastes.

To the OP ... My recommendation is to go with DLC 1019 nozzles, 11mm fuel pump, stage 2 colt cam and a vnt17. Heck you could even go with just the nozzles and 11mm pump. With the right tune you'd be laughing. Don't go bigger turbo until the hardware is in place to fuel it. Also go 3" turbo back I do t have any dyno results but my car is pretty swift and has the following:

Stage 4.5 Malone tune
Vnt 17
11mm pump
Forge sidemount intercooler fed by 1.8T pancake
DLC 1019 nozzles
Stage 2 colt cam
PD150 manifold
3" Buzzken turbo back
Sachs VR6 clutch (which it slips and needs upgrading)

I probably wouldn't drop the $$$ on a cam until I was exceeding the flow characteristics of the stock ALH head. Along with the cam, you should be doing some headwork to take advantage of it. But that's just a personal opinion.
