    If you are going to keep the car, you need a specific plan on how to get it smogged, and thus registered.

    If you are not going to keep the car, don't spend all that money and effort.

    Still would like to see that dyno sheet..... I too have a ej255 with 3" exhaust and stage2....but with a vf52 (bigger than a td04) and at about 18lbs, and I don't have 300 at the wheels....maybe at the crank.

    Just put the 18G etc. on it and run it hard until it kills it.

    Your issue is clear.

    If you don't have the money don't fix the car.

    If you have only a little money, fix the car only enough to keep it on the road. Replace the stock turbo with a stock turbo.

    If you have a little more money, replace the stock turbo with a stock turbo for now and wait and see what happens.

    If you have more money than the car will ever be worth, and are willing to part with it, replace the block and stock turbo.

    would you guys suggest replacing the block bc of the leakdown test and compression ?

    considering you have already stated your intent on going bigger power and more mods, you should have the additional motor work done, if not now, then as soon as you can afford to. The compression and leak down results indicate your current components are warn. It could run well for many more miles at current power, but it is showing signs of use and age.

    As to weather you should replace the block, that depends on pricing.

    If you can afford replace the short block with one that has forged internals that would be best since you are planning on eventually trying to hit 350whp. This would give the best chance of being reliable for years to come.

    If that is too costly price having the block torn apart and rebuilt with forged internals. Depending on where you get it done, this can be cheaper than a fully built forged internals short block, and can provide only slightly less life than a 'new' block.

    If both of those are out of your range, replace with a stock short block and lower your power goals a bit. While 350whp is possible on stock internals, you would wear it out much faster than one with forged bits.

    Really, there is no way to know how warn the current block is without tearing it down. It could just need new piston rings and minor machining work (slight boring to true it up and some honing) to get it good.....or it could need major over haul.

    Never seen a dyno that gives you results in crank hp. Just run the block you have as is,until it is done, if you don't have the cash.

    If you plan to reuse that block, do it sooner than later. If not run it hard until it starts blowing oil.

    ok i have decided on what to do

    i am going to replace all my internals and i am going to get

    ACL Rod bearing set
    ACL Main bearing set
    Eagle Forged Rods
    Wiseco Pistons
    OEM Gasket Set
    ccs tmic
    walbro 255 pump
    750cc injectors

    but what help i really need from you guys is deciding which turbo to get. Its between

    OEM VF 39/43/48 Turbo

    which one do you guys recommend my goal is 350 to the wheels or a little bit less but dont want a late spool through my power band so tell me which turbo you would get and why

    Off the top of my head, I can tell you none of those turbos are going to make that goal reliably. I don't study turbos large enough for that, but you are talking 20g or something not a VF. 750 injectors also sounds small. If that is your goal you should talk to the person who is going to tune it and have them tell you what you need for them to be able to make it work (even if you do the work).
