turbo setup

Alright, I was gonna go S/C but desided to toss that Idea.
I'm gonna go Turbo. I don't know too much about a good setup with them.
I am gonna go toms kit, that give est 250hp.
I know I want a 65 T/B, UDP, and some sort of exhaust. being as how I don't plan on the turbo for about a year. Would it be alright to just go with a 3" exhaust? with just an intake?
anyways whats a good udp? i hear the FC udp kinda blows.
thanx in advance

Ok here we go

The stock HARMONIC balancer/pulley has rubber in it ,The UDP have none this rubber is there to reduce the HARMONICS of the rotating Assy

It has NOTHING to do with the balance of the engine just the balance of the harmonics the engine produces

No not noise Harmonics the same thing thet the fat lady uses to break glass with her voice

It can also do damage to your crank and bearings
