    I want to boost a b18b. I only want to run about 6-10psi. I am not sure what turbo i should get. I want something that spools fast but keeps boost in the high rpm range. I will take any suggestions. Also if you have had a bad experience with one turbo please tell me about it so that it doesn't happen to me. And one more thing, is a block guard worth the money, where can i get one, and is it hard to install.

    Thanks for all the help. :rolleyes:

    Are you looking for a turbo KIT, or just a turbo itself?

    What are your HP goals?

    When do you want it to spool by?

    How much money are you willing to spend?

    And finally,

    HOW FAST ARE YOU WILLING TO PAY?

    I don't want to spend a bunch. I would like to get it new. Oh and i am talking about the turbo itself not a kit. I would like to hit like 220hp. Or better yet i would like to beat a highly modified gsr n/a and a gti vr6. I want it to spool at about 2000rpms or less.

    Thanks for the help

    straight t3, 16g, etc- those sizes are your best bet.

    t3 is a garett/turbonetics farm breed

    you can find block guards anywhere
    importparts, optauto, etc...
    does it work, who knows. i've heard both sides, neither really proving a point either way.

    you won't find a new 16g i dont think. i dunno... look around
