Anyone familiar with the Cavalli turbos?


Recommended Posts

I just spoke with them and from reading about the turbo it seems like a really nice turbo! They said it is slightly larger than an 18g turto and around 20 psi should flow 45lbs and make around 330whp or so on 93 pump gas but hit full boost by about 3100-3200.

Fairly pricey. I might carry their brand so I would get a discount but might wait to see some installed dyno's to see how they perform.

 

What do you guys think of them?

Yeah they seem really nice! Expensive turbo but if it really does spool up as fast as a 16g as they claimed it would be really nice! Fully rebuildable is nice as well as all made in the US with only best quality parts it seems.

 

They did say that after market oil lines with this turbo may be an issue. You would possibly have to install a restrictor to limit the oil pressure going into the turbo I guess due to being ball bearing and not journal bearing. The IPT oil line kit might have enough restrictions but they said if it smokes right off the bat then you need a restrictor pill of some sort to restrict the oil pressure into the turbo.

I have experience with a stage 1 turbo for a 08 WRX.

 

It's been a shaky road, but their customer service is second to none on getting the issues resolved. (most other stock location turbo companies would have said take a hike with the first issue)

CNC aluminum CHRA is very interesting, wonder it can warp though.

 

As for restrictor, it looks like a 1/8 npt .035" restrictor should do the trick. I ran one of the ATP AN -4 to 1/8npt ones on my ball bearing Garrett's, even though it wasn't a must due to built in restrictor. Made it it easier to connect SS braided oil lines and provided and extra piece of mind.
