I'm a bit surprised at this really. Given that the Garrett T3's have a longer spool-up time that the Mitsubishi TE-05's, how it is really a problem when coupled with a T37 auto trans? Isn't the fact that the transmission will shift gear by itself and maintain an almost continuous power output from the engine to the wheels which also keeps engine revs within a tighter range better for keeping a turbo spooled and operating efficiently?
