Hey everyone, I'm looking to up the boost in my 185swap. I'm currently doing 16pounds on the stock turbo, but I want moreeee! I'm going to be getting a garrett GT35 soon. Or something of that size. But, the stock block has a couple weak spots that can't handle this kind of power, I already know a couple things I need.

1)forged pistons
2)MHG (going with cometic from ATS)
3) ARP head studs
4)and I want to replace my rod bearings while I'm at it.
5)bigger fuel rail
6)bigger injectors
7) new fuel pump

Since I already know where I'm getting my MHG from, where should I get the others? I'm looking for somewhat cheap prices.

Oh, and I'm also looking into getting a water/methanol injection kit to keep my EGTs down.


Current mods:
-3inch DP
-3inch mid pipe
-3inch manual dump valve on Y pipe
-MBC from twosrus
-FMIC w/ 2.5" piping
-HKS SSQV BOV
-HPS 4ply couplers good till 240psi
-polyurethane engine mounts
-AFR gauge

Any other reccomendations for what I need to get a turbo the size of a GT35 put in?

My goal is to get around 350WHP, possibly more.

Rods, engine management. Also, I'd refresh all the various seals and gaskets. Get a new oil pump, water pump, fix any issues that may be outstanding. And you will need an upgraded clutch. GT35 is a pretty large turbo, you can do 350whp with less turbo than that.

maybe you should try gt3071, I Think you should be able to reach 350whp with one of those and with a lot more driveability, you shouldn't get a bigger turbo than what you need, bigger isn't allways better.

Where turbo size for the same goal whp have been discussed earlier.

And I just want to mention that I seen cars with 400hp and rear wheel drive smoked cars with over 1000HP and 4 wheel drive at a race track only because of better build quallity.

But of course if you are planning on dragracing your car you should focus more on big power.
