Garrett and PE turbos
 
I know that the IHI and deadbolt turbos are the "go to" turboo upgrades, but are there any opinions on the PE18 series turbos, or the Garrett GT series turbos sold by JSC? i have heard that the PE turbos are "laggy," and that the Garrett turbos are simply expensive. is this the case?

Power Enterprises makes good turbos. Theres a guy around here making around 320whp on his PE1820.
