If you find something like that, let us all know.

Ball bearing turbos are supposed to be more durable, from what I've read. Search around, I know somebody posted about a company that makes a ball bearing turbo that can work on the RS. Of course, they're way more expensive.

Check out: http://www.vishnuperformance.com/ http://www.carmodifcations.com/

I hear that Car Modifications is working on a new twin turbo set up. I'm going for the TEC-II first (from Vishnu), then a turbo (twin?) later.

I believe that half of Minnam went to Vishnu and the other half went to Car Modifications. Lots of people feel pretty good about the Minnam Stage II.

If you want the one that spools quickest, then it's the IHI (though there's lots of IHI, I assume you are talking about the one JC sports was offering). However you'll be limited to around 230 HP in stock trim.

Ball bearing sections allow the turbo to spool a bit quicker.
