    new tuner here.
    am planning on complete system rebuild. (engine, exhaust, fuel) what types of turbo would you guys reccommend for around 350hp? does the ball-bearing design really improve lag?

    i'm new at this. i'm going for an elegant driver, not impressive dyno charts. i need something with as little lag as possible with a high level of safety and versatility. (it also needs to be good in the rain 'cause i'm from seattle) building the block so i don't blow it, and the head for safety at high rev's. i know i also want some type of computer to handle all of this so as my knowledge grows i can tinker with the system. am looking for driving impressions/experiences and general setup ideas.

    well if u dont wanna lag much a 14b turbo from a DSM works super! But if you wanna go bigger and more HP, we have had some luck with the Garrett Gt35r turbo! good luck! do some research and see what fits ur personal needs

    lag... is something to worry about in 1st gear at the drag strip.

    so long as you have a propperly geared tranny, you can stay in boost-range between shifts on a pretty large turbo.

    a 14b is worthless on a built motor. it's barely good for any power on a stock d-series.

    on a b16, i'd go with a t3/t04e .63 a/r, 57/63
