That depends entirely on your goal and your setup.
Do you want a quick street car, an auto-X, a dragster or a dyno monster?
Larger turbo, more lag
Smaller turbo, quicker spool
and of course, you forgot the GT family turbo :wink:

something tells me this thread is going to be as long as a bit of string.

we can not tell you what is the best turbo. we can only tell you what we think of them.

my personal preferance is the mitsi turbo and this is only cos im a tight ass. if money was no object i would get a motorsport engineering (MSE) turbo.

don't mind me, i always need help

I'm saying the Garret GT28, correct me if I'm wrong but it's basically like the GT25 but spools faster. I'm going for an Autox and some road racing set up.

As far as the td06sh 20g, can someone explain in terms of spool time, lag time, is it low/mid/high end turbo, etc? I don't care much bout the specs YET (AR, turbine size, etc), i'm just trying to get a feel of the overall turbo's performance, not specs.

Thanks!

The GT28 does not make as much power as the GT25. You would think that as the numbers go up, so would the power? GT25, GT28, GT30.....etc. Not so. The GT28 is rated at about 290 horsepower, whereas the GT25, depending on iteration, is rated anywhere from 350-440. In fact, I may have a brand new GT25-400R for sale soon. But they all rock!

Of course you do. And if you install that on a 3SGTE, you can hit the gas and wait a few days for the boost to hit. LOL.
