Default turbo options gtx 2867 or 63, or modded gt2871

So. I am finally ready to step up from my puny ihi. plus with 60k miles and recently trying to push it to 12 psi It is a ticking bomb. So I am about to call abe and have him start making my manifold

my eventual goal is 350ish hp. so I dont know if the 67 is overkill and the 63 is a better choice because of the faster spool and I have absolutely NO idea how to read compressor maps and there seems to be very little info here for the 63 (search came up with one thread)
I can also get a gt2871 with an precision t3 flanged hotside set up for EWG that is lightly used but in perfect shape for 100 bucks. and at that price is very tempting.

I have also thought about a holset build but i dont think i would be very happy with the spool and would probably be way overkill for my power goal, I would shoot higher but i personally dont want my transmission to explode and i dont have the time and especially money to be replacing a 6 speed every year.

Agreed^ As long as it's in good shape. Run that and spend the rest of the money on safety equipment and other go fast parts.

What holset do you have? Hard to give advice when you list the turbo as "holset". That's like saying I run a "garrett".

allrighty sounds good. i didnt know if i would miss the spool. or if being a regular gt28 it would beable to hit the hp goals if i do decide to push the tranny's limits. but that does save me about 1400 bucks.


and my buddy co-owns a diesel tuner shop. and i was wanting to get a used
HY35 but they seem to be pretty rare. and new ones fetch almost new garret gt28 prices. vs the hx going for about 400 new.
