Thanks for the input. . .

You definitely want to go with a different turbo on your 2.5L motor. The "body" of the HTA68 simply is too small and will choke off your motor.
Also you want a turbo with an 8cm hot side, and a large compressor housing. The 8cm hot side allows the 2.5 to breath, which not only makes more power up top (which is what people think is the only point) but MAKES MORE POWER DOWN LOW and improves throttle response everywhere, low, mid, and high. Its all about volumetric efficiency. You need a turbo that not only has a compressor wheel big enough to push the amount of air you want (the amount of air you want is directly proportional to the amount of power you want to make) but that the body is large enough to physically allow the volume of air through.

Also, the numbers you are looking to hit, simply are not going to happen unless the dyno you are on is so incredibly high that it is essentiall lying to you. The shop you choose can blow smoke up your ass all day about it being real, but I assure you that if you come up against a car that ACTUALLY makes that much power, you will get pooped on HARD.

Honestly man, TD05-20G 8cm will make you a LOT happier than that HTA68 for your goals. I would also HIGHLY recommend an EWG and maybe even meth injection.
