    Does anyone have one or have had experience with one of the above turbos?

    I was a subaru guy and use to lag for how big turbo I went with a 2.0 but being new to dsm I do not know what's best.
    Looking to go with one but I do not know which is best for little lag and good top end?

    I got an fp red (old school). Im hitting full boost at 4700 rpms. This turbo likes high boost. it gets fun to drive with it in 25-30 psi range... Suck for a Dd car....

    Sounds like the hx35 I have now. So I guess I need smaller LOL

    With a bolt-on housing your HX35 would spool in the 3500-4000 range and still flow well enough for 500hp.

    True^^
    I hear it spool at 3500 and waste gate opens at 4-4500. I'm only running 10psi bc guy I just bought from last week had safc and no dsmlink or tune.

    So if I keep the hx35 and actually get dsmlink and tuned properly I will be ok? All I really want is 400-450whp

    I had my fp HTA green untuned. With 272's, all I can say is that it pulls pretty darn good with minimum 14 lbs of boost. Spool is slower then smaller turbo but once you get in the 5k rpm, it pulls way stronger. I'm waiting to get a tuned and see how she pulls in the upper 20 psi. Not much lag at all.

    Stick with the hx35 by all means and use the money you were going to blow on a new turbo on dsmlink you can always find good deals on the classifieds for link and EPROM ecu. Also grab a wideband then you'll be ready to tune. You will also need new injectors, those stock 450s will not hold up to any real boost on a holset, grab some in the 1200+ range and you'll be set.

    You definitely need to get your setup capable of 20 psi, and then see how you like that Holset. I was around 32-33 psi on my old hx-35, and it was a total blast
