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

i wouldnt use anything off a dsm ,i have one a 90 talon tsi that used a M6 turbo to make 525hp@ 537 lbs-tq till i pushed 25psi one day and heard the famous dsm death rattle aka chunks of block and rods bouncing under the car, i just bought my turbo system from http://www.focus-power.com price was a little over 5k just cant install anything during the winter


dsm's are good reliable cars if you treat them as such.. i worked on them for atleast 6 months ( that doesnt seem like alot but when your doing the same car over and over it is ..)

im sorry i obviously just dont know as much as the guy that owned the supra you must have far more knowledge then me for that. i forgot that dsms were junk using motor technology thats almost 20 years old and still in use today ( the Evo still uses the exact same motor) and all dsms are junk that includes the talon lazer eclipse and lets not forget about the conquest/starion 3000gt tt/ stealth tt and mirage vr4's i guess they are crap too because they are a dsm. and my knowledge only consists of putting a v6 into a zx2 , making a 98 neon acr run two 14's ( 14 sec at 14lbs of boost) running a 105 mph trap speed with a 13.5 second run in a conquest and putting a sr20det into a 240sx by myself ... but i dont know a damn thing about cars or anything so i guess i should quit posting now huh?

 no the evo does not have the same engine as the dsm  they use the same engine code but they are nothing alike  looking from the front the tranny on a dsm is on the left the evo is on the right and the only thing the two engines have in common is that they are both 1997cc and they both use balance shaft because mitsubishi is too lazy to balance the motor right

Hmm...I may have to do something I don't want to....  Hope I don't have to.

Anyway, Chris...how're the plans coming along?  We need an update.
