All depends on how much power you want it to go. Personally if I had the money I'd use a turbonetics turbo just to be different as everyone is using Garetts.

As for turbo sizing I'm not qualified to comment on that for the time being but if you hang on for a few mins you'll get the replies your looking for.

T04 Z all the way... 800 h.p turbo ball bearing etc....
It's different to old T04's in hat it has new designed housings... With .84 housing they spool nice....

.84 is turbine housing.

The rear housing doesnt determine size.

My 1000hp GT51R has a 1.05 rear housing and my smaller 700hp 3540 has a 1.06 rear.

Yes generally the bigger the turbo size, the lower A.R can be used.. For insatnce a 1.06 on a T70 would be way large ....Thats if manufacterers make them in various sizes...

Usually ball bearing turbos are water cooled as well.

actually now that it comes to mind is there any turbo car around that have a good turbo on them that would work well? i might buy a tempary turbo to make the manifold and run for a few weeks then i install the good one(Garrett) and new computer(MSII) and injectors and fuel pump and fuel reg etc
like skyline 300zx supra s15 ford holden(maybe not holden it might stop holden together) lol toyota nissan BMW etc LOL
id say skyline, supra 300zx turbos to small? they spool up to early?

cheers
