What displacement is your engine (2.0/2.5)? Do you have a specific HP number in mind (pointless IMHO)? What is the main goal you have for the car? What is its purpose (DD, drag, auto-x)?

Check out blouchturbo.com All kinds of bolt on turbos, great people, great products. Im running a 20G from them, if I had an engine like yours I wouldnt go smaller than a TDO6-20G 8cm^2.

BTW what transmission do you have in yoru car?
