16 g no name turbo
grimmspeed 3 port bcs
turbo xs headers
turbo xs catless up pipe
custome catless turbo back vibrant exhaust
650 cc dw injectors
obx turbo inlet. which is bs im pretty sure
big turbo xs top mount
turbo xs bov...yes its atmospheric and will be changing to rec.
tgv deletes...self done and look amazing if anyones interested in that service hit me up

ok so my issue is where the eff do i spend my money its def a toss up between a blouch 18g xt turbo or ewg or should i just wait and do the hybrid swap which will then make me want to redo the heads and all that good stuff....so some suggestions would be much appreciated

Well, if you have shaft play, you're looking at rebuilding or replacing the turbo anyway, so start there. With the 2L the bigger turbos can't be all that fun to live with. So, since you don't need an EWG but you will need a turbo, look at a quality 18G I suppose.

ya i think blouch would be getting my money ...herd alot of good things and i guess that the 18g will still be ok when i do the swap down the road

but the turbo does spool and make good boost just makes me think how long it will last
and honestly my goal is to actually gain in the tq area which kinda has my stumped right now
