Lets talk turbos

OK being as I can't leave anything well enough alone I'm planning my next upgrades. I want to do a t4 or t4i turbo. My up pipes are leaking and the .84 housing on my stocker isn't cutting it. I would rather spend the 700$ it would take to fix those issues on something that will provide room for future growth.
I realize that there will be other costs associated with doing this beyond the 700$ t4 mount, such as down pipe, intake spyder and so forth. My real questions revolve around which turbo.
Requirements are:
1) must be rebuildable. No chra's that require 2/3 the cost of original turbo.
2) support 450 horse for now
3) emphasis on towing, secondary on daily driver.
4) good drive pressure ratio.
Opinions and why? Thanks gentleman.

P.s. I keep hearing about nltd's mount kit but can't find any info on it.

Pm thug like he can set you straight on nltd's stuff. I'm running a modded h2e on carson's mount that I got used for 1500 and I'm tickled to death with it. Deals are out there all the time

Re: Lets talk turbos

Ya just missed a good deal in classifieds on an h2e setup. If you had to buy new is that the setup you'd go with?

Re: Lets talk turbos

Have you considered a super duty 66? Basically a journal bearing 38r that's easily rebuildable

Re: Lets talk turbos

Re: Lets talk turbos

IMHO there is no tougher turbo, not more easily modified turbo then the H2E...

I've run the PISS out of mine for 150k, and its still as good as the day I installed it.

Re: Lets talk turbos

I have the HFSB(newer version of the GQSSB) and i really like it. It to is a T4i mount and is working great with my set-up. Tows extremely well and also works for a daily driver.

No Limit Tuning Design
Jonathon can turn your stock turbo into a 66mm beast. Since you have billet Wicked Wheel II cost should be $1050. It can be modified enough to support 600hp.
