    Don't waste your money. If you want to upgrade your turbo, just go rotated...

    Dont want that big of a turbo though, wanna keep it stock location. But ive just recently started looking at rotated turbo kits so maybe I might just save up for a rotated setup.

    You don't have to go obnoxious with the turbo size. GTX3071R is a fantastic turbo for the 2.5L motor with regards to DD-ability. The Tomei turbos are overpriced for what you get from them (similar to the APS turbos on previous MYs). While a "rotated" setup seems expensive, when you factor in that you can sell many of the aftermarket parts you buy for a SL setup, the price difference is negligible. With a rotated setup, you can have a more aggressive tune with the same safety margin, as the system is more efficient.

    I was looking at a blouch 20gxt-r also, I have seen a newer sti with a rotated setup and wow. He said he was still on stock internals pushing 447whp.

    A comparable stock vs rotated setup, the rotated setup should be able to run a more aggressive tune vs the stock location. With any worthwhile turbo upgrade, you're looking at a motor build, and you'd be happier with a rotated setup, to be honest...

    Gahhhh your convincing me to spend money! hahaha Eventually the motor will be rebuilt with all new internals. But until then Ill settle for a new turbo on a mildly aggressive tune. But your definitely convincing me to go rotated!
