$6k could get you a GT42 on a proper manifold with a good gate and everything else you need.

Unless you want more than 400rwkw you should probably upgrade your ebay cooler and everything else first.

The stock turbo can make up to around 420.

Fit a proper cooler and do your supporting mods then get a retune. You might need to enlarge the flapper and put a stronger actuator on but that isnt expensive.

oh nice . well i guess ill just leave the turbo alone then. yea with the injectors and the fuel pump i should be gettin around the 270 i think, then the exhaust i should be able to crack the 300 mark

you will max out the engine before you max out the turbo.

cooler + injectors + internal fuel pump, + tune will get you 270~ rwkw

You will need to get a BTR auto or upgrade clutch and gbox (to a mal wood opt3+ and t56) as they WILL let go.

then go a dump and hiflow cat (if you cant afford a full turbo back exhaust system) and should see the low 300s with all the above. If you dont do valve springs, it is HIGHLY unlike you will crack 270-280rwkw. Unless you do (at least) hi flow cat, it is HIGHLY unlikely you will see 300rwkw.

GL on your mission and keep us posted :)
