    your BOV doesnt bolt to your manifold, your wastegate does....

    look through BLAAST PERFORMANCE - CUSTOM TURBO CHARGING, they sell quality rebuilds at a nice price. look at the compressor maps to find one that suits your needs.

    id suggest either a .48/.60 or .63/.60 57 trim, both will make excellent power with a nice pricetag

    dont buy there manifold plain and simple. do you want any bottom end? low compression big turbo b16's have no NO bottom at all, so think of that before you jump on a turbo.

    and 5-bolt (ford-style) turbos are rare as hell, and no "good" turbos come in that shape flange. get a normal t3 4-bolt mani and downpipe setup, and you can run just about 90% of every turbo made

    how so? pretty much every .48 a/r turbo ive seen runs that flange. i agree if you are runnin a .63 or bigger, but ive seen lots of turbos with that exhaust side. my t3/t4 hybrid sitting on my desk shares the same flange as the Ford .48/.60 right next to it...

    if you're running a 48 on a b16, there's other issues at hand....

    thats a pretty damn big snail

    i suggest looking through various compressor maps and finding one that fits your goals. bigger is not always better, especially when it comes to spool times.

    I believe Westcoast turbo has rebuilt turbos for cheap. and you can select any turbine housing you want! Haven't bought anything from them but planning too in near future! For turbo size (400hp) I say t3 60-1 with a .63 ar turbine but in your case I believe that's a .48 a/r. Or maybe a t3/t04e to get boost a little sooner.
    check out their site!

    just so you know ssauto 5 bolt turbo hosuings are different than real garret so that downpipe wont work on a REAL garrett/precision 5 bolt housing without cutting up the downpipe and re welding it.

    for a B16 an SC61 with an E cover and a .63 exhaust would be a good combo for 400whp.

    do NOT buy an ssauto turbo or any of the XS power ebay shit.

    there's no damn need to go "fully standalone" by means of a Haltech or something. If you are OBD2 and you decide you want more tuning capabilities, go with Emanage or AEM EMS.
