    I plan on boosting somewhere near 300WHP. It would be a daily driver and I would like it to be very reliable. So therefore I do care about gas mileage.
    I kinda have a setup already tell me what you guys think. Ill have to find it cause I can't name every part.

    hmm im sorta in the same boat here, but im looking to make 200 whp on stock internals, somewhat of a modest goal. you are building this i assume.. since you want it very reliable?

    Well here is my setup I got so far:
    Port and Polished Head
    Skunk2 Valve Train
    ARP Head Studs
    Wiseco Forged Pistons
    Eagle H Beam Rods
    ARP Rod Bolts
    ACL Race Bearings
    Stage 2 Crower Camshaft
    Turbo Kit
    3"Exhaust

    What do you guys think of this setup, im open for suggestions. How much whp would you think is better if its going to be daily driven????

    all of these thigns are goood! and will help your engine stand up to some brutal beatings
    you'll have to be alot more specific about all the different dimiensions fo the turbo to get any idea of how much hp you will attain.

    need to know
    trim
    a/r
    speculated boost pressure
    what altitude you are running the car
    tons of things

    okay is it possible to get 30 or more mpg with 300hp and proper tuning. If I want something with good accel I would want a smaller turbo and if I want something with good speed I would want a bigger turbo correct??? How would I know what kind of turbo specs I would want????

    well you could just get a big enough turbo that you could stay out of boost while daily driving around and still have some pull up top since you can rev it out a bit more with the head work. I personally think the sc61 or the smaller sc34 would be a good choice. The 34 is similar to the t3t4 suggested above.

    you can stay out of boost with any turbo if you just take it easy.

    bigger turbos are better for more horsepower. you need to know the horsepower your looking for and go with a turbo the is efficiant in the hp level and amount of boost your going to run to get to you achieved hp.

    it just takes longer for a turbo to spool the bigger it is. for 300whp go with a gt28rs or a 50 trim will get you to your goals.
