dont worry about upgrading the turbo, it can put down a good 250-270rwhp.

if you're going to bother changing the turbo, might as well bother changing the manifold and DP.

Not to be a dick but.. search. I think there's about 100 threads about upgrading from a greddy and what will fit on the greddy manifold and downpipe.

Wait.. I guess in retrospect it was dick.:gay:

If you evar want a Garrett GT2554R, GT2560R, or any of those other Garrett GT25/28 turbos, I have the downpipe to fit it if using the greddy manifold. My greddy turbo went bad on my car so I went with the GT2560 and modified my 2.5" Racing Mazda downpipe to fit it, kept the Greddy manifold until that broke too. Then I taught myself how to weld and made my own manifold and downpipe. The modified RM downpipe has been collecting dust in the basement ever since. Actually, that first manifold and downpipe I made are also sitting in the basement collecting dust. Anyways...

The garrett turbos could spool better and/or make more power than the greddy/mitsu turbo (depending on which turbo you choose, of course), but IMHO they aren't worth the price until the greddy turbo craps out.
