I knew nothing about turbos a year ago. Decided to put a toy together for the street and managed to read enough between those 3 websites to be dangerous. Vsracing has some decent info about the turbos they sell. If you want compressor maps you have to go look for a garret that’s close to the size you’re looking for, nobody else really publishes anything.

Yellowbullet can be a little high level at times but more accurate information than anywhere. On Facebook the lsx swap group and sloppy mechanics group can be resourceful. I'm still on my learning curve tune wise. But know enough to get into trouble and break my 6 second cherry too. I have been close to getting the 200 mph one taken care of too. And our slower bracket dragster will probably have a smaller turbo on it as well.
A little secret that has been surprisingly hard for me to get my head around: If you don't try to rotate the earth, and keep boost down to less than 14 lbs, a turbo combo can be reliable and repeatable. Go figure. LOL. But when you start leaning on them, things tend to break. Whoda thought?!

Lil brother is having same issue. He run a VR6 with big turbo,Been running 4.70 range,when he listens to the car. His first time running that quick he was about 10 lbs down on starting line and made wuickest pass. Then not listening to car or his older brother he goes and throws more at it,not run just lot of unhappy car. Then he sets it back very soft on leave,again car hauls. He tried more boost car not happy. Seems obvious, but guess its hard for any of us to feel we are leaving performance on table.
