Which Turbo? Size & Brand
After a night of Hell raising in my friends 700HP Turbo 92 LX, I have decided to nix my plans to build a car around a T-trim an go with a turbo setup. So, being the "small town white trash" person I am; I want to build my own Turbo setup. I have seen a lot of nice kits on the web and have done a lot of reading on Turbomustangs.com but I still have some questions mainly focused around the turbocharger itself. First, what size turbo? I am building a installing it on a 98 4V which will be running up to 7500 rpms. I was thinking T-66, but a few people say it is too small. I am looking to be at 650-700rwhp. I looked at a T-68 and a T-70 compressor maps and I think all three will do the job but, the bigger ones will do it obviously more efficiantly. This brings up another question, If I get the T-70 which A/R do I go with to get it to spool up fast but not create excessive pressure in the exhaust?
Once I get this all figured out, which brand of turbo do I buy? The Turbonetics and Garrett stuff looks nice but what makes them so much more money? Then there is Precision Turbo and Master Power. These Turbos are cheaper from what I have seen. If I go with one of these, What am I giving up in terms of quality?
Also If anyone has any good TIG welder info or links please pass them along.
Thanks in Advance,
