So perhaps I should stop being suck a ***** woosy and swap my SR20 Journal bearing T25 out for a, I think it's a GT2876? I was reading about this turbo and many say it is under-rated. Here's the deal. I like the fact that I can rebuild my turbo for $80. My setup with the future 99-00 MSPNP, EBC, and 14psi should make at least 235rwhp. How much of a difference would it be if I swapped in 550's and a GT287whatever? or maybe even a 3071? I am just kicking around ideas for my winter build, and am looking for the best efficiency for the $$. Give me whatever ideas you guys have. I want my stock head/ bottom end to handle my future setup, and also my rear / trans. I am guessing I want approx-300rwhp. Put it this way. I want to pull up next to someone and instead of asking the question, "am I gonna beat this guy?" I simply have the Paul sentence of "this dude I gonna get FUCKED UP."

i think you want the 2871. nice turbo for ~300 rwhp plus or minus without compromising spool much.
