If anyone would be able to recommend a few ideas on a turbo that would not be too crazy, I'd appreciate a place to start.

Thanks in advance.

Seems like Iím the only active guy on this thread lol.

Iíd start with a STI turbo, VF39, VF43, or even a VF48.

With supporting mods you can put down some surprising numbers.

Full exhaust, STI injectors or after market injectors, intercooler, headers, uppipe, good set of spark plugs, maybe a fuel pump. Thatíll get you started. You can research other swaps people did and get a feel for the numbers. You can also build up the sti turbo while itís out of the car and thatíll help too.

You have quite a few options but I think what I mentioned would be a great starting point.
