No experience w/ a TN 58 but just based on experience w/ 62-66 mm singles w/ various injectors up to modified 245's I'd say you'll get pretty quick spool up from the 58 size and the bb design but you'll be hard pressed to clean some fully fueled 190's. A 62 or so will do a lot better job on the clean-up end of things but at the sacrifice of a little spool speed. Several guys are running the IndInj 62/70 (and a good custom tune on your SCT) with sticks in that general size and are very happy w/ the overall results. Good luck in your quest for the right combo for your needs.

58 is a stock replacement turbo, no good for modded injectors, Do at least a 61 or 62.

+1 what he said. If you're stuck on TN, a 61/68 would be a good choice for 190's. Won't quite clean them up with full fueling, but leaves some room to spray and spools nicely.

If you tow, I would stick with the 62/70. It spools almost as quickly as stock. If lag is not an issue, you're probably safer with a 62/80 with 190cc injectors.

For sure, no go on the 58 and 190s. I would follow Justinlw and atleast stick with something like the 62/70 if not the 62/80.
