    no clue about that one, to get a good turbo your gona spend at least 700 bucks, i would stick to the big name brands or you will regret it later

    No you don't have to spend that much......and IHI/Borg Warner is a name brand


    And that turbo isn't too bad, just the 4 bolt exhaust side is kind of weird and may be hard to find a flange.

    Contact a distributor who sells a/c compatible turbo manifolds. Keep in mind, I did this with my kit from Full-Race, and I ended up removing it anyway. If you plan on making serious power you can kiss your p/s goodbye, I've blown the p/s belt off twice on the dyno upwards of 500whp and yes, it sucked big-time. :(

    As far as a turbo, I personally like Turbonetics and Precision. The 60-1 is my personal fav', but I am growing on the precision sc61. If your pockets arent deep I would suggest getting a setup from Peakboost. Great product, quality.

    the only power I am looking at for now is at least 200 or so..the more the better but I don't see me going anywhere over the high 200's if I get that

    just get a used t3 60/63 and rebuild it. Cheap, efficient and plenty capable of 200 hp.
