Thread: FP 71HTA turbo

    FP 71HTA turbo

    I have a new Evo 9 FP 71HTA supercore turbo I bought in 2018 that I planned on installing, I will not be doing that any longer and plan on putting my car back to stock. Is it worth holding onto the new turbo in case the stock turbo dies? the car currently has 180,000 miles and is going from a duel 91/e85 tune to stock tune.
    I am not sure if I would be able to pass a smog check with the upgraded turbo or will it work with a stock tune?
    Thank you.

    I did not swap my turbos when I had my 2 Evos before.

    I had a stage 1 tune on my X and it passed smog.

    Thanks, that's what I thought because it's pretty much a replacement. Just not sure if the stock tune could work with it.

    Yeah, I had an Injen intake and AMS exhaust with a tune.

    The only thing I did was took off the AP and the cable and brought it to smog, had a CARB sticker for for the intake and it went through fine.

    The 71HTA is an awesome little turbo, been very happy with mine. You could cruise around off boost and be ok but I wouldn’t go smashing around at WOT without retuning.

    They are worth good money these days, so if you are not interested in the performance It might make more sense to sell it and grab another stock turbo.
