Are the FrankenTurbos better than the RS4/RS6/GT500 turbos from VAST?

Better than the RS4? Yes. Quicker spool and more top end. Better than RS6's? Debateable. FT's have more bottom end but RS6's flow more up top. RS6's cost twice as much though. GT's? Not much of a comparison, they will make more power at the expense of lag - but you should build the engine to capitalize on them (and make 30+ psi).

I think FT's hit the perfect sweet spot in terms of street performance for someone who doesn't want to build the engine.

Thanks, I really appreciate the input. I bought a S4 recently and basically am planning on mirroring the build on nogaroblue. If you've upgraded to the FT's its good to know, thanks.
