3sgte turbo upgrade

Hi guys,

I need some advice on what turbo to run on my 3sgte that is currently being rebuilt with all new forged pistons, new crank, race bearings etc etc. I was previously running a T70 turbonetics turbo which gave me a massive amount of boost but a hell of a lot of lag, it wouldn't start spooling until about 3500rpm but it would give me a solid 22psi. I want to replace it with something that will spool up a bit earlier like 2700rpm but can wind up quickly. I still want to run it at about 20psi because the engine I am building can take it.

Any advice please?

btw I am not restricted to a turbo that will simply bolt on to the existing exhaust manifold, I am getting stainless headers fabricated for what ever turbo and wastegate I decide to run

So I have decided to run a Garrett GT3071R but I still need to decide what turbo housing to fit. What do the different size turbo housings do and what would suit my engine and my needs? the options I have available are: .64a/r .82a/r 1.06a/r
