Great video, Tom! I have to say, I kinda thought the HTA68 was coming. I'm going to go ahead and predict a cutout of some sort on the exhaust side of things...

An unrelated question that I'm not sure you can even answer in public; do you get any kickbacks from the guys you mention in your videos (ECMtuning, Forced Performance, Detective Coating)?




Thank you and I'm glad you enjoyed it! A good old 20g or one of the other Garrett based FP turbos sure were tempting, but I wanted as stock appearing as possible, so the 68HTA was the best choice. Regarding working with ECMTuning, Forced Performance and Detective Coating, they do support my video efforts in various ways. I really just love working with straight up, good companies though and their work and track record speak for themselves. I just hope I can help give them some more exposure and show off their work in a unique way. I would use their products and display them in the exact same way even if they didn't offer to help out a bit. I have had offers from other places but have passed because they weren't products/etc. that I'd be willing to use or suggest that my friends use. Hope that helps explain things a bit.

Have you seen these? click

Pretty neat, will probably pick one of these up when the time comes. Transparentdsm has one of these on his car, says you can touch the blanket after driving your car hard.

I love watching your videos, and I agree the compressor wheel looks insane. Would you mind putting a few tears in the dash so you can show us how to fix that haha.

Loving the vids Tom, definitely an inspiration for my own build. On a side note, I was perusing your site and saw you did a write up for our last dyno day, def need another one. Maybe after your street sleeper is tuned up?

Thank you Dan and I'm glad to hear that! Yeah, our DSM/Mitsu crew is hard to wrangle around here. If someone were to spend the time organizing and planning something, folks would definitely attend. We have a Facebook page but it is pretty quiet these days. Probably best just to attend a general shop dyno day and then invite Mitsu folks to that. As for running my car, I've been to a few dyno days and they aren't really productive other than getting a quick hp/tq number, as they are quick to get the cars in and out. I would want to spend time data logging and tinkering with my tune.

Hi everyone,

Here's the latest update, where we bolt on all of the new turbo goodies and take care of a few small maintenance items while we're in there. Thanks for checking it out as always!

Great vid, Tom. The 14B really looks like a dwarf next to the 68HTA. Perhaps an Evo 8 intercooler next? I'm assuming you have to stick with the stock piping to meet the stock appearing criteria you've set. I think I'm going this route myself, so I'm curious to see if that's how you are thinking as well. Although, I'm not sure if that intercooler would support a 68HTA?

On a side note, where do you get all of your new OEM Mitsubishi parts?

I never realized the 68HTA was such a worked over turbo. I thought it was just a different compressor wheel and machined compressor housing. FP's own stock appearing turbine housing? NICE. I guess I've been under a rock.

I need to pull my 3052 off and send it to FP for an HTA upgrade.

I was under the assumption the 68HTA was mated to a TDO5H turbine wheel for the longest time. It's actually significantly bigger. After you put the 68's large turbine wheel in the FP 8cm housing, it's easy to see how they get 51LB per minute out of this little turbo.

Thank you, glad you enjoyed it! I agree that the 68HTA packs a good bit of heat in that unsuspecting package. As for the intercooler, I'm doing a bit of experimenting to keep things stock appearing. I hope it all works well, making stuff appear stock is hard. Regarding the OEM parts, I get them from the usual vendors like JNZ, etc.

I agree Mark! In the past I appreciated the 68HTA from a distance, but the more I researched it, the more I understood how much it offered given the frame. Regarding your 3052, from everything I've heard, the HTA upgrade is definitely a worthwhile one.
