The vane allows it to vary the apparent housing size. IIRC .88 a/r is the large size. Gwoody can answer it better, I had this conversation with them and I forget.

Also known as a "twin scroll" turbo. MHI has a setup like this...

It doesnt really change the size, just the airflow around the turbine wheel IIRC.

Hence why I said "apparent" Lots of work has been done on the optimization of the vein design. I have seen the turbo in action and it is very impressive. Rivals a small set of twins in performance.

Are you sure about the terminology of the twin scroll? Do you have a link describing it. My definition of a twin scroll is basically a divided housing, but I have been mistaken before.

Mitsubishi runs a "twin scroll" turbo on the EVO X last I looked. Not 100% positive...

Those two morons almost cost me a phone when I tried to slap the taste out of their mouths for being so stupid.

The name of the show is actually Motorhead garage. These guys used to be Two Guys Garage.
I don't care for some television shows either but evidently some folks do or they wouldn't still be on the air making millions of dollars per year!!!!!!!

See the link below for an article in Diesel Progress magazine on the Switchblade Turbo.

Does not look like it has anything in common with those twin scroll/diverter valve set ups. More like a different take on a VGT style charger. What sizes are these available in?

I have had some questions regarding the operation of the Switchblade Turbo. "How does it work?" Click on the link for a video with a cut a way view of how the blade directs the exhaust flow into the turbine wheel.

I really like this design. It looks like it would direct the air better than a vgt or vnt.
