What's your goal Erik? How much boost do you want to run?
If you want to compete in the Hydros you will have no shot with just a small quick boosting turbo. You need a big turbo with nitrous to get off the line.

I was looking for 24 lbs but that doesn't have to much lag

I'm running a precision 5857 with the 4" S-ported compressor, CEA(billet) wheel, A .83 V-band in/out hot housing, and dual ball bearings.
It spools quick, and rips @ 20PSI.(capable up to 30 PSI @ 610hp) Also have the external tial 38mm watercooled wastegate.

Where are you guys buying the precision turbos? Do they sell a water cooled hot side?
