hi, im really frustrated now :)
im trying to choose between...

new single HX35 - twinscroll super7 blade from GS racing
( prob. everyone knows how do they looks like :) )





used greddy TD05 16g twins





or stock S15 turbos - T28r's

every setup from above will require loads of custom work,
however im not scared because of that...

what im trying to get is fully street able 500hp.
no huge numbers, no huge potential, no laggy beast that pulls over 6k rpm ;)
just a nice car wit a quite good response.

any help ? :)

Why dont you just fit garrett 2860 -7s !???
Alot less hassle and will give you 500 easy and great response.
Or go with a set off -5s and a good set of cams.

Try the holset IMO.

They are cheap, even if it doesnt work out well you can always get a more expensive single at a later date. I think you can even use a "normal" t3 footprint exhaust manifold with a HX35. Possibly need a bolt on adapter but it means you wont be spending loads on a manifold you cant use if things dont work out.

turbos from my first post, cost between 450-600pounds.
if i could get 2860-7s for that price... but i cant :)

they are quite expensive turbos to buy new.
hard to get used ones.

i will make fully custom manifold with twin-scroll footprint.

once you factor in the cost of manifold and exhaust change I would stick with a high response twin setup. If you are only looking for 500 flywheel hp then look out for a set of N1 turbo's or garrett 2860-7 (garrett equivalent) or 2860-9 (equivalent of HKS GTSS's).

Holset HX35 definitely the way to go, for a start a pair of TD05-16s would be quite a bit of overkill for that power level in my opinion - more work, and more lag.

after loads of PMs with Rick i decided to order SuperHX40 from endlessR.
will provide results with this turbo here and the building process here :)

im going with HX40, apexi 44mm WG, custom manifold and pipework, new exhaust with active silencer,
massive BLITZ fmic, mocal oil cooler, bigger injectors, fuel pump and probably new cams.
loads of work behind me :D

many, many, many thanks Rick for your help once again !
