its basicly a center mount log manifold. problem is i'd have to get a honda radiator and notch my core support to make it fit. not really what i want to mess with at the moment.

You would be better off with a new manifold over a different turbo.

I would start setting money aside rather than going with a smaller turbo. A proper manifold will benefit the system in all areas of performance and, be a great investment that will allow you to build on top of a good foundation.

Setting aside $700-1000 for a properly made manifold will get you high peak power numbers, better spool, and better efficiency across the board. And again, will let you keep/improve on that when you go to an even larger turbo later down the line.

the bang this turbo give is really impressive.

actualy i'm not a good ref for you.
but it still can give you a idea!
last year, stock Ranger block (2.3 base and 2.0 head), stock IM with is pretty small 14" runner, stock EM with the 2 cat before it reach the turbo, with all the piping include in a remote mount set-up and a 4:10 dif... 12 psi before 4000 rpm in gears 3-4-5 (close to 3300 un 5th gear).
I'm actually working on a homemade IM sort and large runner, bigger TB, large volum plenum. to match my new fogered rob and piston, custom engine mount and intercooler upgrade.

edit
here's the HX35 map

light red was pojected 12psi
dark red was real 12psi
and yellow is the new 20-18psi target.
do your math and have fun
