Can someone who knows the differences between all the popular turbo's make a list here that tells the good/bad points of each turbo along with their estimated max HP so we will have a guide to look at when picking our turbo's? This would answer a lot of questions on "which turbo is right for me?"

VF22
VF30
VF34
PE1818
PE1820
etc.?

I'm thinking that a VF30 or VF22 is probably the two choices I'm going between.

I want something that can handle ~300WHP not much more, but doesn't sacrafice lag TOO much. I'm thinking that a PE1818 and 20 are a little big for me and probably too laggy. Is the VF22 just as laggy or is it a little better than the PE series?

What kind of HP can the VF30 and 22 support?

So if the VF22 is more laggy than a PE1818 then I guess I'll go with the 30 or 34. I was hoping the VF22 would be better since they are a lot cheaper than the 30series for somereason. I'll probably have to go with a VF30 since price is of the essence. I have the Vishnu stage 0 (minus the pully...but it's comin'), and plan on adding turbo back + turbo + injectors + FP + and MAYBE N20 in the end. That will be the extent of my engine mods for awhile, until I'm done with the appearance.

Well, it probably won't be for another month or two probably, I was planning on getting a pully+exhaust before the turbo, but even if I changed and got the turbo first, I wouldn't have the money for like 2 months. I don't think I would be ready before the end of the GB...:confused:
