Installed a crazy concoction put together by Forced Performance to hopefully keep my evo the perfect backroad monster with a little extra punch up top.September 12, 2019 at 7:02 am #78770UnstableAdrianHD

Ball Bearing is a reliability thing, theoretically it spools faster but it isn't very noticableSeptember 12, 2019 at 7:02 am #78772Jason Moser
Maybe its just me but… I truly enjoy the interaction between a few of my favorite gearheads @7:30. I feel like it is exactly what we've all been looking for in videos from you and others. Thanks for this. Keep up the good work!.September 12, 2019 at 7:02 am #78773No Limit Rc
Should of put the fp black!!September 12, 2019 at 7:02 am #78774lanilm kopo
Adam can you link me your ignition setup. Need this for my 5 big time.September 12, 2019 at 7:02 am #78775Daft Hands
Should have gotten the FP Black. The Green won’t get you close to 500 WHP alone.September 12, 2019 at 7:02 am #78776Andre R Memories
Hopefully im not the only one that loves the vids with Adams dad in it. He is just awesomeSeptember 12, 2019 at 7:02 am #78777mike sloat
dead pixel in the camera starting when he test drives the evo is driving me nutsSeptember 12, 2019 at 7:02 am #78778Its Shaba
Everyone in the Evo community when he says a FP Green is "big": 🙄😂
Evo Auto X guys run FP Reds and that's still small.September 12, 2019 at 7:02 am #78779aola wili
Your dad looked like he was about to pass out when you were driving. That porsche RIPS!!!September 12, 2019 at 7:02 am #78780Blake Campbell
Please do more stuff with your bmw 335iSeptember 12, 2019 at 7:02 am #78781Dat Boosted Ute
Yea i got the Vband downpipe FP green and sold it because it was slower spool than an OEM 9, so i got a custom 9 with TME billet wheelSeptember 12, 2019 at 7:02 am #78782Tj Omg
Look how good he is already , doesn’t even need a seatbeltSeptember 12, 2019 at 7:02 am #78783SiN Loud
Honestly, I love seeing Rudnick, Tommy, and Adam hanging out while they do car stuff together.September 12, 2019 at 7:02 am #78784JayShmurda
His dad looks like Eiski when he rides with Tagami in his 86September 12, 2019 at 7:02 am #78785ShadowOfDeath24
that course is confusing as shit for a first timer man i see why he was so lostSeptember 12, 2019 at 7:02 am #78786Casey Baker
HELL YES AUTO-X!!!!!September 12, 2019 at 7:02 am #78787Abendschein
Street Tires in Autocross are 200TW+ tires, r888's are an R-comp tire.September 12, 2019 at 7:02 am #78788Joe Perucci
DUDE I met Tommy at efi when my sti was getting tuned and he told me "some guy" was talking shit at his shop about bolting on an FP black turbo and making 800whp. Had to have been talking about adam before he decided on the green.September 12, 2019 at 7:02 am #78789Rusty Wells
You suck at copilot Adam I mean really suck at it!!! WTF! Dude you mess up your Dad's run!!!September 12, 2019 at 7:02 am #78790Drew Lambert
i don't want it to be a racecar full tube suspension heim joints …..September 12, 2019 at 7:02 am #78791Matt Souza
Pappa LZ is savage but you tossed him around in the Porsche i felt bad for himSeptember 12, 2019 at 7:02 am #78792Evan
Tommy "can I talk shit" F'YeahSeptember 12, 2019 at 7:02 am #78793RMAGEDN740
Displacement yields more torque. However, individual cylinder displacement determines how it builds. Evo is .5 liter per cylinder, whereas the gtr is .43 per cylinder. Evo builds better torque down low, gtr up high. And obviously turbos add to the amount. And yes, cam profile.September 12, 2019 at 7:02 am #78794JCU

Imagine being a Porsche driver and losing to a Z06 on slicks, lmaoooooSeptember 12, 2019 at 7:02 am #78800Daniel Ward
My buddy has a green on his 2g at only like 20lbs, it fuuuuuckin rips. Good choice well probably see a red soon. And no, you can get the ball bearing option from FP.September 12, 2019 at 7:02 am #78801Sylvester Stillstoned
That porsche takes off like a MONSTER.September 12, 2019 at 7:02 am #78802Chris Topher
Your dad is rad manSeptember 12, 2019 at 7:02 am #78803Turn in Burn
I loved the co-pilot rally style with your dad lol, Stoked about the battle with Godzilla! honestly gonna be a close one..September 12, 2019 at 7:02 am #78804wackomanx
I don't think running a ball bearing turbocharger will start making boost that much quicker versus a journal bearing turbocharger. If you have the time, I found this quite an interesting read.
Better/faster spool with bb over jb is another great misnomer in the turbo community imho and usually a seat of the pants placebo effect. There is also some misconception as to what spool is. The time it takes to start making boost at the manifold, that is really transient response which is generally measured by what rpm you start registering boost at and can be called the boost threshold, then you will have an rpm you achieve desired max boost at, often called full spool. Spool really being time from initial boost to get to desired boost at wot. Most though consider it when boost starts being made, ie my turbo spools up at 3000rpm and full boost 45000rpm.
Many factors to look at but in general no there will be no night and day spool difference especially if the turbo is already spec'd nicely for the engine size. You could expect at most a 100-200 rpm difference tops in boost threshold, ie barely noticeable to no measurable difference going from jb to bb with all other factors equal.
Resistance of the bearings difference is minimal, a couple percent for 360 journal vs angular contact bearings, so all else being the same not much difference in the ability of the mass of the shaft and wheels to accelerate with the same turbine drive pressure.
That said a bb setup is generally mechanically superior to jb in every way. Requires less oil volume and pressure to lube and cool. Less surface area contact so this reduction in friction generates less heat in the bearings which means its more mechanically efficient for optimal acceleration. This also leads to increased stability, as the ball bearings are less likely to deform at higher temps and shaft speeds. A ceramic ball being the best over a steel ball, but steel ball still superior to a 360 journal. To sum it up this leads to bb generally having a longer service life and able to withstand more abuse. It will handle things like surge, stall, shifts, 2-step launches and high pressure ratio/shaft rpm better.September 12, 2019 at 7:02 am #78805Jose Sellas
Adams looked like elitot and his dad looked like E.T. When he was in the basket riding in that seatSeptember 12, 2019 at 7:02 am #78806wackomanx
Odd you have to explain to viewers the reasoning behind going with Forced Performance over a company like Precision or Garret. Their drag car is one nasty DSM.September 12, 2019 at 7:02 am #78807lolDierr
Adam should just stop saying he’s not going to overbuild his cars. We all know it’s gonna happen anyway lolSeptember 12, 2019 at 7:02 am #78808bradford2013 gaming
Where did the turbo S come from?
