Default What Turbo Is Best?

Ok so as you guys know i'm fully building my engine so i'm kinda cut back with the power due to my t28, i'm having a hard time choosing a turbo it's kinda confusing with all the a/r and trim sizes..any ways my motor will consist of my 03 head and 96 block all supertech internals, billet steel oil pump, and ATI Super damper ect. ect, stock cams and crankshaft. i'm looking for about 350 with good spool up..
can you guys help me out..i have my eye's on this

You're in a very strange place at that particular power level. I don't think I've heard of anybody getting anywhere near that with a DP, so at a minimum, you need to be looking at GT2871... but I think you're going to be over the efficiency of that one as well.

Check out the flow maps and do the math... then call Corky.

Most guys running that kind of power are in T3/T4 territory or for a "quickly spooling" solution, a GT30xx.

There's a recent thread about somebody throwing a T28-sized turbine on a GT30 sumthing compressor for the best of both worlds. Not cheap for the new parts of for the custom DP you're gonna have made though.
