I still think the journal bearing PTE turbos are far and away the best value for the money. It's too bad that they're pushing all their new offerings over to ball bearing only. At that point they are getting close in price to most everything else.

The new turbo will be something in the size range of the DOM 4, FP Red, GT3576, etc. That's the plan at least. I suppose that's similar to a 7670 as well. It would be hard to compare since I'm guessing their setup is far different than mine.
Yup, very good points on the EFR. You could consider the older airwerks turbos like the s300sx (83-75). Its journal bearing, oil cooler, much cheaper, etc. Its been on my radar.

You are saying stock location then? Justin put a Dom 4.0 on his RS with the new motor. 9:1 CR, S2 cams, etc. We maxed the turbo out and it put down 580 whp @ 30 psi on the superflow dyno. Its damn quick for a stock location turbo car.
