Optional T51R Mod:
Optional T51R Mod is where we plug and then CNC machine the inlet of the compressor housing to amplify the turbo whine and whistle. Keep in mind this modification is done after the order is placed and typically ads a week or two before the order is shipped. However, sometimes it can take longer and maybe even up to 4 weeks. If you have ordered other finishing options like ceramic or polishing, it may add additional time on top of the typical 2-3 weeks before your order ships. Because of the labor intensive work and machine time needed, there can be delays beyond what we quote. We do take special care to every order to prepare for shipping and want to make sure you get the highest quality parts and service. We are confident that the quality you receive is worth the wait. We appreciate your patience while we work.

I purchased this turbo about 7 years after I rebuild my engine. I run it on a 7.3 idi in an 85 F250. Over the years I have tried many turbos ranging from a t04b to an s366. I settled on an s360 for about 3 years, but it was notably laggy, and I could only ever get 13-15 psi from it and egt would be great while cruising, but it would get fairly warm in any sort of load condition.
With this S257SXE I can easily hit 20 psi even in lower rpm, and the lag is non existent. Egt are pretty much never an issue with this setup. I would reccomend it for anyone looking for a turbo for one of these engines in a stock to mildly modified setup.
Great turbo and customer service also highly recommended the t51r mod!
Shipping was quick and product was as described. Customer service was excellent and polite when they notified me that the original turbo I had ordered was no longer available and offered me this as an alternative. Turbo itself is of good quality and works perfectly.
AGP turbo technician support thanks for making choose this turbo is tons of fun the quick spool is awesome
I still don’t have this installed but the price and quality is top notch. The V band inlet housing is very nice and the staff were great at sorting out details with me
