    Forged internals? (And 35R)

    So, I was wondering at what point I should consider forged internals, my goal is around 350 to 450 whp.
    It's also my DD, so of course, the last thing I want is to grenade the motor. Anyone have insight?
    Also I keep hearing about a 35R turbo that "drops in" (stock location and internally wastegated) if I'm stage II
    would this turbo be compatable?

    Turbo swaps and DD don't go well together.. you're definitely going to want to have another car to drive on a daily basis.

    Any change of the turbo will require fuel system upgrades and custom tuning, so not exactly compatible with stage 2 (of course you will need stage two mods, but you will also need a lot of other supporting mods).

    Lastly, I wouldn't consider using anything 35r and stock location. At that size, stock location is pretty inefficient. For almost the same money you can go with a rotated setup that will have less lag, and make more power EVERYWHERE in the powerband. But let me reiterate, the car will NOT be reliable to use as a daily driver.
