I have been hearing a lot of great things from Trusted performance with their turbos. Also, II have some awesome turbos. As far as the price, for a good turbo in the 64mm-66mm turbo range, expect to pay no less that $2,500, and that is on the low side.

As far as Injectors go, the most reliable set, that is up in the air. A lot of injector builders have good injectors, but I don't know of a single builder that has never had a set of injectors throw one out. Your best bet would be to go with someone that has a proven track record and good customer service. Talk to some of the vendors on here and they can get you some good prices. Good luck with what ever you choose

Re: best non-vgt turbo

I am running 190's with a 64mm/71mm non vgt, non wastegated turbo from Trusted Performance, and it has a 1:1 ratio all the way up to about 35-38psi, then the drive pressure goes a little higher, and the boost stops at about 45 psi.
