Well I've done extensive research and decided to use a stg 3 kinetic kit as a foundation for my first turbo build. Although, I'm stuck on a few things and need some guidance.
Whp goal is 400 and I'll be intercooler and have a head spacer.... 42lb injectors and inline fuel pump. My bottom end is stock for now and gonna be throwing in Autotech 262's and new lightweight lifters. Tranny is being rebuilt and prepped as we speak with a Peloquin LSD and stg 3 clutch net clutch and yellow pressure plate.
Now my confusion starts here: I have the option of a) precision t3/t4 60 trim and b) garret t3/t4 60-1. Both with either 63 ar or 82 ar. I also have the option($700 more yikes) to upgrade to a gt35r, 30r or precision 6262 all with either 63 ar or 82 ar. Now considering I don't want to pony up the extra $700 on top of everything to upgrade to a gt35r, what t3/t4 turbo should I go with as well as what ar? I suppose it's useful to say that this is my daily driver that gets me to work and I don't rev(nor do I plan to) my engine to 7500+ rpm. Some say on a t3/t4 the best ar for a vr6 is 81 since the with the 63 it boosts too soon and runs out of breath. That's understandable but with the 81 ar, would I be as daily driver/street friendly as the 63 and where would I start to see boost and where would I see full boost?
Sorry for the long post but I know the turbo gurus and more versed like to have as much info on goals and such so they can give the best/most accurate advise.
Thanks in advance for any and all help. It's much appreciated.
