Default Not another Churbo thread!!

Sorry to be a pain in the ***, but I'm going to be buying a turbo either today or tomorrow and spotted this on eBay UK (avoids the large shipping fee's from US). I ran a GT2554R on my last car, but it ran out of puff a little at the top end, and would like to gain more power up the rev range.

I'll be running it on my 1.8 with standard engine internals, FM Cast Manifold, big intercooler and free flowing exhaust (2.5"). The aim is around 250rwhp and I'll be running it with 550's and W.I.

Any thoughts on this particular turbo? Looks very close to a GT2560 from what I can see on the Garrett website, with the only different being the Trim is 50 on the Churbo against 60 on the GT2560. I'm not too sure how this will affect the spool / power characteristics.

I also spotted this one, which is watercooled, but again, different turbo specs:

Which one would you go for and why?

Grab a 2876, from what my searching yielded most of the Churbos are hybrids...usually similar comp side, smaller turbine side so they aren't truly as big as they say.....kinda like Hustler
