Hey guys, i am trying to make a final decision on a turbo to replace the Esmeril No Name unit. I am curious to see what others will suggest and what input they may have. I was thinking of just going wiht the replacement that esmeril is using now with the Precision 6265.
Engine is a fresh rebuild (2500 MI) with esmeril seals. Also have Meth injection and an EBC. Int-X will be the tuning and injectors have been upgraded to 1000cc and 800cc alog with the stock primaries.
Dont have any real goals for the car. Looking for something to have fun on the street and be somewhat of a sleeper, i would like to get into track racing also. Still would like to be able to break into the 400WHP mark with no more then 15lbs.
Any suggestions would be great, i know there are a lot of threads like this but what the hey, have to have somthing to talk about while i am working right?

Phish, I have the precision 6265 on my car since Nov. Broke in the turbo just before the winter storage and it is nicer than the old no name turbo. It spools quicker and power come on sooner. It also sounds nicer too. I have the journal bearing one. I could not justified spending more to get the ball bearing one. In 6th gear I get boost around 3500 or so rpm when I rolled on the gas pedal. It is a nice upgrade if you are looking at upgrading the old turbo.
Well looks like i may be going with the GT35 Hybrid with the smaller .84 a/r. ( http://www.turblown.net/store/index.php?productID=47 ) This will be instead of the 6265. Good choice? Bad choice? I guess i am jsut looking for some reassurance considering there are so many choices out there its hard to make the final decision. Suppose i just need to pull the trigger and get things moving.
Sweet, you guys got that together and out pretty quick. Hopefully it turns out to be quite a good seller for you guys, unfortunately i will not be able to get the car tuned till the end of March but hopefully things go well and we get a decent dyno sheet for the turbo.
