Default China 2854 or Garrett 2560? Stock 99 motor

So I have in my possession a China 2854 from Begi and a Garrett 2560. This will be on my 99 (stock motor) with an FM Mani and dp. Supporting mods include, WI and MS2. I'm not as brave/stupid as some people so I only plan to run at about 250-260 whp. So with all that in mind, which would you use? I drove for a long time on a 2854 so I know what it feels like, but I've never driven a car with a 2560.

2560. you will be in ecstasy at how fast it spools and youll be right in its efficiency range at the power level you want so itll feel nice and crisp.

if you're looking for mid 200's and stock block 2560 will give you the benefit of quick spool and being closer to its efficiency range.

I agree with the two homo's above me

since you have both on hand, the 2560.
the chinacharger is only an option when you don't have the cash for a garrett

I think the 2854 actually flows less than the 2560. So the 2560.

The BEGi 2854 was what was on the motor when I had it, and was responsible for my boost creep. So I wouldnt bother with that thing just for that reason.

the only reason it does die is becuase the boost was dropping. that's saint_foo's old dyno.

Well when you put it that way... lol

Another +1 for the 2560, even though you already decided.
