turbo upgrade

well i my truck goes in next week for studs, injectors, regulated return, fass, and a liberator egr delete. i ordered everything 2 weeks ago and i had everything but the injectors. i called to see what was going on and elite said the 190cc nozzles are on back order and they dont know when they could get some. they had one set of 205's and me being as impatient as i am decided to get them. im sure my egt's are going to be through the roof with an 03 turbo. they can detune me quite a bit but i still think im going to have to go bigger. this is mostly a street truck so quick spool up would be nice. i do like to run at the track. what turbo do you guys recommend.

The only issues that I'm thinking here is that your peak hp and tq is going to be high up in the rpm band. Depending on how high up, you may never see it on the street unless you just really let loose on it(and I wouldn't do that with all the eco police round there in Cali.). You might also want to think about a fluidampner with your peak hp/tq going up there on the tach. Also I would set aside some money for a Suncoast rebuild.
