Default New Turbo help me choose?

Hey so I am confused on what turbo to do.. I really like Blouch, orignally I was gonna do a 20G but I want to do a bigger Turbo to have some more headroom for more power in the future.. Right now my goal is for 350-375WHP.. My setup right now on my 06 STI is APS TMIC, APS 70mm, GT Spec Headers, DW 740CC etc.. I have been really looking into the Blouch Dom 2.5R but I am not sure havent seen to many reviews on it.. I am also doing a 44mm EWG so I should be able to hold boost no prob.. But my debate is what Turbo.. I want to run the APS TMIC for a while so a DOM 3 is just gonna be to big for me, I also dont want something to laggy so I figure the DOM 2 is out for that reason.. Like I said my goal is for 350-375WHP on Pump and 400WHP in the future on Meth or Race Gas.. I really like the full ball bearing 2.5R it will probably spool real nice.. What do you guys think which Turbo?? Thanks

Read the Turbo FAQ. You have goals which is great, now you need to narrow down which turbos will get you there. Review the basics...that should net you 3-5 turbos, then search for them in the Power Proven forum to see the results of others. Then compare costs and purchase. It's really that easy.

your doin good so far, keep goin, read read read read. it took me about 5 months to choose my turbo. speaking of my turbo have you looked into the green?i made exactly 375 on meth and pump on a mustang dyno, at 24 pounds. im going to add headers and tune for uno mas psi and i should be right around 400 wheel on a mustang which is very stout for a street car. i mean a green is perfect for 350 375 on pump and like i said 400 is attainable (hopefully) on pump, and **** thrown some race gas even more boost youll be well over 400. im not sure about the blouches but they have one equilavent to the green, that seems to be a perfect size for your needs if your trying to go with blouch. good luck buddy

Thanks for the reply but my question isnt really about Turbos price wise or the basics of Turbos.. I know all this my question is about Blouch Turbos especially the 2.5R and all the DOM series. I know a 49lb Turbo will get me the gains I am looking for but I am wondering if the 52lb Dom 3 is overkill for a TMIC just wondering if anybody out there is running one with my setup or simliar.

Yeah I really dont want togo rotated. You have to remember I am full STG 2 with mods to support certain Turbos like the ones I was aaking about. A element GT52 with my APS TMIC might be a issue..

HELLO MODS................ I dont understand how this was moved to Newbie forum when I am asking specific questions on Bluch Dom series Turbo, and if anybody is running a Dom 3 with a TMIC, and how the Polka Pickle Spools compared to a Dom 1 when running a TMIC with a specific setup..

Maybe a will start another BOV thread and get like 5 pgs fo replies yeah thats cool...Are you guys kidding me what a waste really
