Empire out of Dubuque Iowa deals in precision turbos. Nothing wrong with them. The charger you've got I would imagine would do well for sled pulling, but won't be worth a crap for daily driving. That A/R is huge and it's got a small exhaust wheel so it's suited for high RPM load and will flow a lot of air there for pulling. But I'll bet it doesn't even light until around 2500?
Check out somewhere in the neighborhood of a 64mm inducer, 71 mm wheel exhaust with a .76 A/R housing. You could go bigger on the exhaust housing with the addition of a diverter valve provided your exhaust housing is split. Disclaimer: This is just an idea of a starting point. You need to talk to someone that deals and works with non VGT turbos regularly and get an idea of which direction you want to go before you pull the trigger on anything. I don't consider myself an expert, I just have a somewhat informed opinion.
