Question Where to go with my DSM... Opinions wanted!

For the record: Hello! This will be my first official post on VADriven. I have been reading these boards for 2 months, but never brought my self to registering. I hope to be an active member.

Anyways...

Thanks to Greg of UCS Performance in Maryland, I will be driving home my 1995 Eagle Talon TSi AWD (6-bolt) this Friday. What's built? Weiseco 8.5:1 compression forged pistons w/ teflon coated side skirts and full floating wrist pins. The engine is using Eagle Rods w/ ARP rod bolts, ARP main studs, Clevite 77 main and rod bearings, ARP head studs, Cometic MLS head gasket, and a stock rebuilt 1st gen cylinder head. Its running on a little 14b Turbo at the moment.

My car is stock with the exception of the 3" TB Exhaust, ACT2100, a Greddy Big FMIC, Wahlbro* 255lph, 550cc injectors (maybe getting ahold of some 650s for uber cheap).

With all of that said, I'd like opinions on what kind of silly-ass turbo I should put on this potential beast. I'm looking to make 350awhp for now. Clearly some minor upgrades will need to be made when I decide to make the long awaited jump in turbochargers (Clutch/FW, BOV, MBC, small things), but she's got plenty of fuel and not enough air.

I'm looking for opinions based on experience. What do you have? What kind of numbers do you make? I've done tons of research, and have a few ideas of where to go from here, but again - I'm looking for personal experience.

Thanks in advance!

Honestly, thats the route I will likely take. I can get ahold of an EvoIII b16g for 150.00 and from my understanding it will bolt right up. No need for an upgrading the o2 housing or any of that nonsense. Still, I'd be interested in hearing some other viable routes.

I'd love someone to tell me to pick up an FP3052.

3052 is an ok turbo, basicly it's the same thing as a GT30R.

the Evo3 16G will fit right up since you already have the 14b on there.

Awesome. Thanks for the input! I'm gonna pick this 16g up for the time being. I expect to see a healthy increase in numbers. Will post slips in the next week or so!

I'm assuming you're referring to dropping a 16g in it without a tune? 14b's max out at about 250-270whp, correct? I've seen plenty of people putting down 330+whp with a conservative tune. Maybe I'm wrong. Either way, I bought the 16g today. Will be getting under the hood this evening.
