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?

Picking a turbo has to do with what YOUR specific goals are.Do you just want big #'s,do you want a fast 1/4 mile,are you going to do autox or club racing?If you are just basing your goal on just top end power then lag will always be somewhat of an issue.Big power=big turbo=big lag.

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

I think a super 16g is a go around turbo.
