you could pick up a small 16g or 14b off an eclispe ( thats the stock on first and second gens) for cheap cuz most dsm guys go for a large 16g or 18g or 60trim the 14b spools 16lbs of boost by 3500rpm and the 16g does it by 3600

Well don't leave us hanging totally...what other prep is going into it?  Rods, pistons and all those other fragmentable parts in there....

sorry about my last post i didnt read how many psi you want ... the turbos i listed are only efficient around 18lbs with a 20% saftey of 22lbs.. you want a big 16g a 20g would be your best bet tho just remember when buying a turbo just because it says it can hit 20 psi make sure thats the efficeint range and not the saftey range ( or overspool range)
