    Whats the point of going through that process and only running 8psi? a 18g or 20g will make you more than happy. The 3076 turbo is a good turbo if you have thousands and thousands to put into a shortblock.

    Supporting mods better intercooler, bigger injectors, bigger fuel pump and a tune

    Ugh... my head.

    I guess it's my fault I clicked on this thread this morning
    2015 CWP WRX STi ... But how did I get roped back into an EJ motor?!

    The mans right about the 20g, blouch introduced the xt-r series turbo and blew a lot of people away, especially me. My previous turbo was the td06-20gxtr, which made a perfect street setup paired with E85. The car made over 400whp with a very lean power band. Im currently running the stock location FP red which is basically the gt-x 3076r plus a few things. Stock TMIC, stock exhaust manifold, E85 @ 28psi the car made 470whp 440wtq. Yes the motor is built but you don't necessarily need a built motor to run either one of these turbos. Although you will need some supporting mods inlet, exhaust, etc if ran on lower boost with pump gas you shouldn't have any issues. The key to this is staying as conservative as possible. Have you ever considered E85, race fuel or meth injection? They might be able to offer you a safer as well as a cheaper alternative as opposed to upgrading to a larger turbo setup. Ethanol really has taken all of my setups to entirely different levels. Ill never go back I can tell you that. anyways good luck with whatever you decide to do.
