Tomei ARMS M-7760 Bolt-On Turbo
PM For One Time Intro Pricing​

Tomei sent us the entire US allotment of their M-7760 turbos. Thats right we have them all. Tomei wants us to get these turbos out and get them on as many different cars as possible so we are offering the three we have left at a very special price. This price is only good for these three after they are gone thats it!

There is a catch though, we are going to select the car very carefully. We are looking for an assortment of cars to have them on. Please post pictures and a full mod list and we will make a decision on who's lucky enough to get them. We are also looking to use your car for advertisements so we will need several high resolution pictures and dyno graphs for before and after. So its kinda like a little contest and the only requirements are that you have a car.

The ARMS-M7760 turbocharger was chosen because its size and dimension allows it to be swapped out in place of the stock turbo placement. Increasing turbocharger size usually hinders throttle response, however we have avoided this issue without sacrificing this aspect. This was made possible by carefully selecting the most ideal combination of components. As usual Tomei's kit includes all factory gaskets and necessary hardware. A bigger turbo without the lag, what more could you want?

Can you give an idea of what other turbos this unit is similar to in terms of power output and spool?

IE, "it spools like a xxx but has the top end of a yyy"

It spools a little later than a vf39 and is good for 22lbs to redline.

So it's good for about 30 crank hp more than a vf34 on a 2.0?

Looks like a sweet turbo but I'm not sure about that "largest turbo you can fit in the stock location thing" :)

Taking what you've said, and what's said on Tomei's site:
"The ARMS M7760 is the largest bolt-on turbo possible that the engineers can fit into the limited space of the EJ engine. Despite the size, the internals of the turbocharger speaks other wise; extracting the most and finest efficiency from its design."

This should be competitive with something like a FP Green, but judging from this: and you saying it can push 22lbs to redline...

I'd say you're probably better off getting a coated 18g and saving the JDM bling surcharge fee. Just like the Greddy turbo kits available, they're not bad setups at all, there are just much better options out there, the only reason I could see someone wanting this, besides cheap intro prices (if they exist), is just to be "JDM" and "different".
