order a 485 to have room to grow later.. because here in canada its expensive to get customs turbo from USA.. change rates,Shipping,Customs and duties fees.. that is why i think to order the 485 and not to have to pay all this again later if i order a 480 now..

BUT. it is really worth it to get the 485.. bigger is not always better sometimes..

I ran a standard s480 from HTT for like 5yrs. It was called as a model a "super Dave". It was cast 8 blade comp and had the 5.5" cover. Went to a s485 with a different comp cover and it was a pretty major change.

in a compound setup? with the same turbine size and turbine housing size?
how is the ''lag'' between the 480 and the 485? little difference or no difference? tanks!

Yes in compounds and both with the 96/1.32 housing. Other things were changed at the same time but it's undeniable the new 485 and cover is a whole lot more potent than the old cast 80.

With a 12mm pump I don't see any reason to go past a box 80. 485 is 1150-1300hp worth of air.
