i think it is all about quality I will going to buy garret or turbonetics and also not to sure which one is better to get and for my foci 350-400 will be just fine
which garret is better to get at this range of HP and which turbonetics
I'm collecting parts right now and will start my own build pretty soon
I'm also turbo noob :D

Garrett's are proven performance, love my PTE 6262 but if I was to get other turbo I will look into a GTX 3082R or a 35.

About the clutch, if you are going over 590whp, about 450wtq, get the twin disk and a Quaife instead of the Torsen, if not CM Stg4 will handle great.

for a good dry sump setup, set aside 2-3k min. Want the name brand parts, add another 1k.

thats pretty pricey for the clutch but considering how much everything else costs it really isnt that bad. any guess as to how many miles you will get out of it?

this is probably going to sound really dumb but im going to ask anyway since im a turbo noob. why is it that it seems like everyone that makes big numbers runs a garret turbo? what are the pros and cons of a garret vs turbonetics or comp? is it a price thing? performance? longevity?

Call Karl at massive he will give you the best price on the twin disk clutch.

Also Garrett 3076r for your goals is all you need, I loved my gt3582r tho :)

Nope, but it's obvious it's not necessary for this build.
