Best Turbo?

What turbo would be best for some 230 hybrids? I am looking for a turbo that can be used for a DD / towing and still be able to clean up hybrids in a race setting? Also looking for a turbo that can be upgraded in the future for larger injectors.

I'd side 38R by far the fastest spooling drop-in turbo, I run it with DI mini-me's and its a blast to drive.

True the 38r rocks but if he wants a turbo to upgrade later than the H2E is going to let him do that as the 38r won't

Re: Best Turbo?

Would the h2e be large enough to clean up hybrids?
What size injectors will the modded h2e support?

Re: Best Turbo?

Sorry for the off topic post, but are you actually in North Pole, Alaska?
I stopped by there in my alaskan roadtrip...

Re: Best Turbo?

What's your definition of "clean" for a 230ish cc hybrid?

Crystal clean I was not able to do under about 60lbs of boost with the compounds on the 250's. That is, when running WOT and actually emptying them. And if you do truly "clean" them, expect 550hp minimum.
