finally getting ready to buy the stuff and had a question
i was getting ready to buy the turbo and mani but i had a 2nd opinion id like to run by you guys,
which would be more efficient/more power producing/etc, im looking into pros and cons of both the folowing systems im only looking to boost about 5 psi for now, and going up from there as mods allow but never over 220hp on this engine...
choice #1, megan racing manifold and downpipe, mated to a EVO3 Big 16g
choice #2 BEGI mani + BEGI divorced wastegate downpipe, mated to a stock(rebuilt) turbo off a sr20det
so far my list of pros and cons adds up as follows...
choice one is about 200 for the mani + 499 for the turbo..
choice two is about 100-200 for the turbo + 285-385 for the downpipe+ 439 for the mani so cheapest comes out to $824
so cheapest is the megan and 16g but only by a little and any cracking or modifying negates the cost savings
megan racing= so-so
BEGI = no competition
id like to know more about which will lag more. what hp/powerband may look like at same boost levels. basically anything elsei havent thought to factor in...
well thanks for your help
