Get the EVO III 16G get it ported and polished at the least, and you will be more than happy and should be able to hit your power goal with a little extra if you wanted it.

I say 18g, but I like power. To me the 18g does not spool as slow as you would think.

I rode in a wrx with a sti motor, heads and a td05h 20g and it spooled pretty damn well for a decent sized turbo. Never ridden in an 18g wrx, but I am assuming with the 2.0 with an 18g will be pretty similar to a 2.5 with a 20g, possibly even a little faster.

I personally would go for the td05h 18g jet coated, ported and polished.

the 18g may be nice, but it's just overkill for what i want. I'm not really trying to make a huge power car. Just a nice daily driver that handles very nicely and can smash it down the straight also wrx-both straight and cornering beast...
