    Re: good turbo?

    yeah that would work fine. it won't make huge power being a T25, but that' about all the airflow/pressure a stock engine can take.

    if you're going to do a forged rotating assembly, then make your own turbo kit with something like a t04 based turbo.

    Re: good turbo?

    It looks to be a fine turbo for stock engines. With the size of the turbo you will get quick spool but puke out at higher RPM. Can handle close to 15PSI with spikes near 19. If you are going to mod the internals of the engine and get a new head then like the gusy say, go bigger. No since spendin' all that money and putting on a small turbo (unless you use it in a Sequential Twin Turbo setup )
