well, finally the time has come to make the upgrade. the stocker just does not have the top end i'm looking for. there are 3 turbos that i'm looking at right now. TA49, TE44, GT3255E. i'm going to be running the stock stall converter for the fall but will be upgrading the stall and to an alky system when the cars down for the winter. want very streetable 11s. i'm leaning towards the 3255 since i'm seeing lately that it has the most potential for later down the road. my current mods are: kirban 3'' downpipe, 3'' testpipe with dump, rjc powerplate, adjustable wga, adjustable fpr, scanmaster 2.1, 009 injectors, walboro 340 fp w/ hotwire, eaton posi(coming soon), stock ic with dutt neck mod, 3'' maf pipe w/9'' k&N filter, pass side and drivers side breathers, TT chip(in the mail), and nitto 555R's on the stock rims. is there really that big of a difference between the 49 and the 44? i'm hearing it's the same turbo, but i also here the 44 has more top end which i'm looking for. i'm seeing the 3255 pulling some pretty good numbers on the forum as well. will be getting a q boost in car boost controller july but that's really all left that i want to do performance wise. so which to get? right now i'm still leaning towards the 3255.
