Question PICKIN OUT A NEW TURBO!

I am currently looking for a good way to boost my power and bring down my egt's. I'd rather stay away from the intercooler because it didnt do much for my buddy. I was looking at ats's turbos and the 3000 & 4000 caught my eye. I do hual some antique iron on the weekends but nothing much. Mostly drag race and have fun! My mods are in my signiture, thanks for any help!!

The intercooler didnt do much around town but freeway driving and racing applications my EGTS are lower then with stock and I am making more boost.

Is that VGT Hybrid the same as a VGT-SS? Is it good for 500hp with a set of 190cc sticks?
