    so, now that i realize im getting more money then i thought i had, its time to start planning on my turbo kit, i hope it will be complete and tuned within 2 months MAX

    now what kind of turbo do i need? my motor was built to handle 25psi, now thats larger than a t3/t4 isnt it?

    b16a cable swap(origionaly)
    JG Engine Dynamics Gen II Block
    Eagle Rods
    JE 10.5:1 Pistions
    Total Seal Rings
    Clutch Masters 7.5lb Flywheel
    Clutch Masters 6 Pluck Racing clutch
    Unorthodox Under drive pully
    MSD Sport Compact Ignition System
    Spoon Racing thermostat
    Spoon B-Series oil pump
    New b16 distributor
    New Valve seals
    New Stainless Steel Valves

    what do you think about that motor?
    how much psi would be a realistic number if you dont think 25 is?

    and what size of a turbo-thats my main question

    psi has not much to do with size.

    small turbos can hit 20 no problem
    t3/t4s can hit 30
    t66's can hit 40

    its not the point...

    i think a POWER LEVEL GOAL is a realistic number, and to choose a turbo that fits the application from there.

    having a psi as a goal is like running in circles to try to not get dizzy :bash:
