Depends on the exacts specs of the turbo but I had a T3/T4 hybrid on my EA. It boosted before 2000rpm and made 205rwkw on 14psi.

It was very responsive and was always spooling up. The spooling sound drove me nuts when I was trying to drive quietly, it was impossible to drive quiet until I fitted a good restrictive airbox.

A bit of both. It wasnt internal like a normal internally gated turbo ala XR6T but the wastegate still ran off the exhaust housing. It was on the base of the rear housing near the inlet flange and had a seperate pipe for the wastegate gasses and turbine gasses.

i have same turbo(T3/4) in my car at moment im selling the setup soon, its ok for a cheep steup turbo, the internal wastegate on thses are very small meaning it would boost to a certain amount of Psi before it stays stable, i have problems like trying to keep boost down, my one hits no less than 10-11 psi with out a boost tap, so my low boost is 10-11 psi, with 3" cooler piping and 450/300/75 size cooler. go for something like a external wastegate so you can get boost down lower than 10psi, or go and get a T4.....and get more top end than the t3/4 turbo
