    USE THE T3/T04E. IT IS A BETTER CHOICE FOR YOUR 1.8L HONDA MOTOR.

    Wastegate-2x wastegate with most boost controllers.

    Most Hondas are limited to 10 or 12 psi or something like that IIRC, someone else will have to chime in about that.

    Limited How?

    Im going to agree with the above. The T3/04E will make plenty of power, and its better suited for a 1.8L power plant. With some head work, and good tuning, you could probably get 300+ out of (its likely you can get quite a bit more, im just being realistic).

    xs power turbos sre junk.... Mybuddie and i tried a t4 on his eclipse and 2 weeks later at 12 psi it was gone.

    Save your money and buy a nice piece.
    BTW, that t4 is way too big for your engine. The shit wont even spool.

    a T3/60-1 (60 Trim, .70 compressor, .63 turbine) is a great choice for a GSR (if youre looking to stay cost friendly).

    Itll probably perform just was well as your T3/04E, so if youre trying to save money stick with the T3, it should meet your needs.
