Looking for max power in a stock location turbo? Look no further. Meet the Steam STX 76 XL turbocharger. It is spec’ed off the GTX3076R compressor wheel capable of 500+ WHP. The 3″ anti-surge compressor housing custom machined for this turbo. It is compact, while increasing spool up time. On the hot side, we have a 9-blade low-inertia TD06H turbine and new 10 cm² turbine housing. With 30% reduced turbine mass, it can both spool up faster and increase flow.
Stay tuned to see what our buddies at FNP Tuning can do with it!
Introducing the Steam STX 71 with stock Lecgacy GT and WRX 08-14. There aren’t as many options out there for the LGT guys, and none come to mind that make make STX 71 power. Our customers have been asking us for a while, when will you make a STX 71 for in stock LGT fitment?
Well, here it is!
This turbo has the same 11-blade GTX3071R spec billet compressor wheel and TD06SL2 9-blade turbine as our STI model, but now with housings and lines for stock LGT fitment.
We are looking forward to the first LGT or WRX 08-14 guys to make 400-450 whp with a stock style turbo.
We make two different kinds of turbos here at SteamSpeed. The first is a journal bearing based turbo (gold colored water lines in pictures) and the other is a genuine Garrett (Japan) ball bearing based turbo (silver colored water lines in pictures).
I thought I’d make a post with pictures of the two together so that those interested could easily compare their fitment. Both turbos are factory location turbos and will install with little modification necessary.
The Steam STX 71 (gold water lines) is capable of up to about 450whp on E85 and we’ve seen the STX 20G-R (silver water lines) pull over 375whp on 91 octane. Both are balanced on Schenck CHRA balancers, the best available, for extended durability.
You know that we are always looking to provide products to our customers that really perform. Our turbochargers are cutting edge, and we are proud to announce that we have a TGV spacer, that is also a thermal barrier, and, requires no liquid gasket.

A couple months ago, some of you may recall that we announced we were working on a new prototype turbocharger. Below you will see that turbocharger; the Steam STX 76 – a journal bearing 76mm turbocharger mated to a lightweight 9-blade turbine wheel. We will keep you posted when we have dyno results.
