Time for a turbo upgrade.. 68hta or hx35?

I now have my eclipse sitting in the garage with more time to be worked on since I picked up a new Ecoboost stang to daily. I'm looking to achieve close to 400AWHP , I already have : Aftermarket ebay manual boost controller, Injen air intake, Godspeed FMIC, GReddy Type -S recirculated bov, Stage 3 EFT Clutch & light weight flywheel. All maintenance is up to date.

I got the stock 7 bolt engine at the moment. Thinking of starting off with a Afpr & a turbo upgrade first along w/ dsm link. Stuck between the HX35 & FP68HTA.

Any recommendations?

Also considering a GST in my area that has a 7 blade HX35 already installed and running well w a 6 bolt built engine. Might be worth buying and swapping.

Any pointer for my power goal are welcome

^^ This is true. I'll have a freshly built 8 blade hx35 in a bep housing up for sale shortly as well.

I've run all. (hx35/ v168hta/v68hta) and the hx35 is my favorite with the v168hta being shortly behind. all of the above will hit power goals with e-85.

What sold me on the holset (inner ricer coming out) is the sound of the turbo spooling is intoxicating.

Im running a bone stock 7 bolt with literally only headstuds my 95 awd auto car with a t3 twin scroll hx35 at 35psi on e85, @MorrisonFab consolidated runner twin scroll t3 manifold and FIC 1220s. I have less than $4k in the whole build including buying the car LOL. Have ran a best of 11.55 @ 120mph in the quarter and 7.43 @ 96mph in the 8th mile all while cutting horrible 1.9 sixty foot times from spinning all 4 off the line. Its making VERY good power and keeps up with 600hp domestics ALL DAY ;).
