SVT turbo size

What t3/t4 turbo would be good for quick spool should I run since my car is a Auto-x car so I don't need a big turbo. I was thinking something with the a/r's 42-48 would be good or would that be too small.

Probably 250-275hp but I want a good amount of torque and low rpm spool up. Eventually 300 I would be totally happy with.

imo, t3/t4 would work but the two recommended above would work even better

one would think going a little smaller like gt25 would help, but its next to impossible to hit 300whp with one, and with the two mentioned above you'll be in full boost anyway all the way around the course above 3k rpm.

fwiw my autox setup will have a mistu turbo, td05h small 16g, only going for 220 at first, 280 if i decide to build, 220 will be PLENTY of power for autox.

I was also thinking of using an WRX turbo since it can get those cheap. 300 would be if I do a track day or maybe a day I want to play at the drags, but my car is mainly setup for Auto-x and so I reaaly don't need a crazy amount of power but to have it there if I need it would be nice too.

I know of at least one SVT running a td04 (stock wrx housing size), he was pretty happy with it at 11psi, took it to Tom to do 20psi and I havent heard anything since then...

the td04 housing really falls on its face at the higher flow levels, if youre looking for the ability to turn it up when you need it then imo the only way to go is a 16g wheel or bigger in a td05 or bigger housing

T3 super 60.... with a MINIMUM of a .64ar.... I prefer something bigger .80+ since all of the smaller ones tend to fall off at higher rpm/boost levels

How fast does the t3 super 60 spool up with the .64 ar. I don't want something to fully spool at 4,000-5,000. I want around 3,000 would be perfect.

Let me put it this way... a GT28Rs with a .86 fully spools around 3000-3300rpm (at 20psi) and the less boost you run the quicker the spool times.

A good t3 super 60 usually has the same spool time as its gt28rs equivilant.
