    nearly every turbo on the market will push 15psi.

    internal gate = gate on the turbo
    external gate= gate on the manifold somewhere
    no gate = your going to blow up.

    dry = no water lines
    liquid cooled = hooks into your radiator/cooling system

    turbo + reliability = good tuning, and not skimping on fuel management parts.

    read the 3 stickies at the top of this forum. they will help.
