i got my info from this forum + if the turbo is water cooled + twin scroll with a twin scroll manifold configuration it should be good IF everything else is up to snuff!!! time will tell so bring on the beta testers!!!
The same ones who are testing the 8 spd that's been out since 2014 MY? You do realize this engine family has been in the Aflas for a couple years now right?i got my info from this forum + if the turbo is water cooled + twin scroll with a twin scroll manifold configuration it should be good IF everything else is up to snuff!!! time will tell so bring on the beta testers!!!
If your using it for daily drive and on weekends going off-road in Cal which engine do you favorI’m not pro/anti any particular choice, but the whole picture needs to be stated, not just the condensed “this is all good” “that is all bad”, or that any one solution will be good for every aspect. There will be some areas where each will excel and where all will have failings.
I’m not against any of the option, and only pro the one option that will likely never be offered, the HEMI, but the info needs to be balanced.
While, I’m not interested in the turbo for my use although the forced air is great for altitude, but I will make the effort to share info like possible turbo candidate on page 1 to help others who can benefit from that info, so that people who haven’t thought of this stuff before can see the bigger picture.
And yes, if incorrect I’ll admit it. Case in point the info from AllPar and others regarding the base engine and the Hurricaine.
I am having same trouble v6 vs 2.0 turbo help live in Cal use it as daily drive plus weekends off-road . Which engine have to get by May diesel not option . Which engine would I be happier with . Which engine will out perform the otherI'm having trouble accepting the Hurricane psychologically because it's only 2.0 L and only has 4 cylinders.
I mean, it's bad enough having to accept a 3.6 L and only 6 cylinders.
Something deep inside of me says that a car isn't a car unless it has a 5.0L V8 (and then you can add your electric motors, turbos and superchargers to that).
Depends on what type of off-roading. Trails that you are constantly moving over, like logging trails, etc. then the 2.0T will likely be fine and probably a better choice, also if you are cresting the Sierra Nevadas in California then the turbo will help maintain some power, and if stuck in traffic a lot as your daily driver then the BSG and small displacement may add up to a few bucks (though if you’re comparing MT 3.6 to Auto 2.0T then that’s a bit more bucks than just the 2.0T).If your using it for daily drive and on weekends going off-road in Cal which engine do you favor
So inform us then. Post the proper turbo model with full specs.You're spreading misinformation. This turbo is not at all what is on this engine. Major OEMs don't just buy off the shelf consumer turbos. It is specific to this application. And as I said above, It's a twin scroll water cooled turbo nothing like what you shared
Hi, would you also happen to know if this turbo comes with a ball bearing and an internal wastegate?You're spreading misinformation. This turbo is not at all what is on this engine.

Prodigy Performance will be working on some options for this 2.0L Turbo. Larger turbo, tune, etc... Stay tuned.That turbo does sound about right. Disappointing. That’s about as small and cheap as it gets. Oh well! Would be nice to see a twin-scroll or ball bearing turbo for quick spool and low end torque. Of course there will always be aftermarket turbo options. That being said, this engine will still probably be an ecu flash away from 50hp.
