Moved to SR20DET forums.

Sr20lad, what are your plans with the car? Are you aiming for big top end power, do you want to keep bottom end torque and street drivability or do you want mid-range grunt?

Hi thanks for your reply, aiming for bottom end torque and street. I dont really want to change internals as of yet, thanks

Alright, that points me in a pretty good direction. One last question, any power goals?

So you seem to have similar goals to me for my next build so I will just share what I have chosen for mine. I believe it will get you pretty close to your goals while remaining safe and not requiring a ton of modification and extra parts to work.

This is a stock fit drop in turbo. It can be used with the stock manifold (which I recommend over a cheap ebay type manifold that will only heat crack and cause issues) for reliability sake and a stock style aftermarket downpipe. My goal for my new car was to be something I can cruise the highway, do some track days or autocross racing and bring to the drag strip. Don't forget you will need to account for added air and fuel as well so you will probably need some nice 750cc injectors and a Z32 MAF.
