|eurocars||2871 would be plenty for 300whp. you could even go with the new gtx2871 if you had a few extra dollars to spend|

do you want a quick spool turbo or one with lag. for a quick spool around a .68 trim like a GT28r the higher the trim/AR number the more lag you will get. TurboTom makes a good kit for the Zetec (you would have to supply your own turbo) he does the tune and all. FsWerks makes a complete bolt on kit for about $4k, comes with every thing you need to just bolt up and do some runs to get it dialed in.
Hope that helps some.

Advice on a Turbo Kit
Need some help.
Looking to resurrect my '01 zx3 and what better way to do so then to give it a turbo set up.
Havent driven a car in a couple of years, missed it way too much and now that i am almost done with school and starting to have some good money flowing in, I am wanting to get my toy running again.
I currently have a built zetec engine. Got J&E pistons, Eagle Rods, custom headers (would probably replace), 2.5" exhaust, JR supercharger on it with an underdrive pulley (12psi). Long story short - the motor was built to withstand up to 30psi! I would probably have a few things looked over and swapped since its been sitting around for so long. But thats it for the back story
Now. I am wanting to get a turbo kit. Obviously bc it gives more power than a supercharger( I am at 190WHP now) and maybe even raise my MPG a tad (sitting at 20 now). Looking to run about 15-20 psi. Id LIKE to get approx 300WHP from it. Dont know too much about turbo so I need help picking one out. Id like to spend less than $5k for the whole thing. Any advice? What all would I need component wise?
Thanks for all your help!
