    So im doing a LS block with a B16 head, 8.5 compression pistons and the head has skunk 2 internals... stock b16 cams and valves that raise the compression .3 over normal.

    Just so im clear what im being told.. you can go wtih a bigger turbo and put less psi into the block and get same results as going with a smaller turbo and boosting more? correct? Im not sleeving the block so this is why im asking. i want to be around 350bhp boosting 10 to 12 psi...

    so i need help choosing a turbo. anyone able to give advice?:huh:

    What you really should be asking yourself is: Where do you want the car to make power?

    With an 8.8:1 static CR, that thing isn't going to be very quick out of boost.

    If I were you, I'd go with something like a Garret 60-1 because it would spool quick and still make that power goal.

    Garret T-25 dual ball-bearing. Spools fast, gives you good low-end power, and boosts up to 15 psi. It's about $400-500 if I remember right but I could be wrong.

    if you want to make some good power and still have some street drivability then get a GT3076r. spools good and makes a butt load of power.

    I second the 60-1. The t25 will not make the power you seem to be looking for, but can be had from old dsm's for less then $100 used.

    run a CP 9.0:1 or a 9.5:1 if you want to keep some low end torque
