If you're going for 600hp on stock manifolds ie. bolt ons(all supporting ancillaries of course), what would be the cheapest option?

From limited prev. knowledge and searches, bolt-on options are
2530s
2860s (seen some sold at 900 pounds)
gtss?

Are td05s bolt on?
Are t517s bolt on (saw banzai_g selling his for 600 pounds sometime back)

Seems like a short list, can anyone add?

edit: found this - http://homepage.ntlworld.com/tbroom/Turbos.htm

Is everything on this list bolt-on?

What are those 32Nismos? Are they cheap or easy to find?

Thanks!

Buy a set of garrett 2860 -5s !!!!!
Theyll do the job great, spool nice and give good power.
T517zs are good turbos but can be very laggy,
R32 Nismos are relatively old now, just sold a set last week. :)

when you say 600hp, i assume you mean at the wheels?
2530s have achieved that mark, but i think that's pushing their upper limits. GT-SS are slightly smaller, so i don't think you can even achieve your stated goal. but great for circuit racing, from what i hear.

Seems new 2860-5s are almost 2000 incl VAT for a pair from Owen developments...they are the main Garrett distributor in UK correct?

Saw a group buy for them last year, 900 for a pair wasn't it?

Are they still easily obtained from the states?

My -5's were £1300. £2000 is way over the top if you're paying that.

Most suppliers are quoting £650 each +vat for 2860-5, but there was a problem with supply from the states. They might have got it sorted by now.
