Question turbo rebuild ?

i am going to rebuild my 02 powerstroke turbo. my plan is to go with an ats compressor housing, but i was wondering about adding a 1.0 wastegated exhaust housing but keeping ebpv becuase of the homemade exhaust brake. will there be an improvement in performance? i also dont want to increase any lag time but would like more top end power. i have an afe stage 2, 4 inch straight exhaust, edge evoultion, ez edge, and a map fooler. any suggestions?
thanks shane

Overall performance will increase but you will have lag with a 1.0 turbine housing.

Ditch the edge stuff, too generic. A good PSD tuner, like TW or Jody, can tune for a larger housing or wheels by changing tip in for faster spool up.

^^ Couldn't have said it better myself.

Edge if you just want more power and smoke...

Custom tune if you want the most power and best driveability.

Run away from it, basically generic stuff with a little tweaking available. It can only get to about 30% of the fields that a TW, DI, DP nor Elite chip can.
