need advice on turbos

so my stock turbo went on me and i need a new one. would like to hear what you guys run, have run, or recommend for my mods. i have a afe stage 2 intake, straight piped exhaust, sct w/innovative tuning, and a fass 150/180. i am staying with the stock sticks and have no plans to upgrade anytime soon. if i ever did it would be stage 1 or 2's. i want to stay vgt. i like the II stage 1 hybrid and the vgt-sr. they seem to be the best fit for my mods. let me know what you guys think or reccommend. thanks in advance

Why do you think a VGT is the best fit for your mods? I'm not all that far from you(with the exception of the intake) and I have a non-vgt turbo with stage 1s and the non-vgt does wonders. That would be the turbo I would recommend.

not that it would be the best fit. i worded that wrong. it is what i would prefer, but if a non-vgt is a better fit then i have no problem with that. i dont know a whole lot about the non vgt. what are its benefits other then not having the vgt on it?

the stage one hybrid has a larger compressor side and modified exhaust housing. its a direct bolt on and it seems pretty similar to stock.

I can only tell you what my experiance with the 64mm turbo from River City is with regard to what I would think of as benefits.

All non-vgts though will have the benefit of less parts to actually fail. As to my particular turbo:

Biggest benefit that I saw was that it has the ability to "hold" egts. In other words, if your building between 5-10 psi of boost and even if your going uphill gaining speed, it seems to be able to keep EGTs pretty well constant(typically around 1100 due to what I have to deal with on my travels). EGT cooling also is greater, but then again, any bigger turbo compared to stock will help you with that. I should also let you know that this is a direct bolt on, all you need to replace is the stock turbo and stock pedestial with the aftermarket ones and your going to go(plus the tuning of course, but as far as the turbo kit is concerned, it's just two pieces).

Well since you are open to non-vgt units I'll cast another vote for RCD. You should ask about the 62mm or 64mm turbo. I helped RESCUE250 install a 64mm from RCD. Kit came complete and was really easy to install once you align the housings. He ran a ID tune and still needs some tweaking but it's a runner on 38s!!
