Arrow Turbo Upgrade!

I am wanting to upgrade my turbo. Maybe with a turbo kit? with the different compressor wheel with bigger housing and wastegate? or should i get a whole new turbo? i dont have a lot to spend on it but i want the extra hp. What works good for my wants. i want to spool quickly to race and maybe pull a sled. but i plow snow and pull trailers so i need something that will work with that also!

I have the Turbonetics Ceramic Ball-Bearing Turbo and love it and it spools quick and lower egt's and is around 1500-1600 bucks

Another option would be an ATS Housing for about 375-400, Wicked Wheel $80, and wastegate for about 150

Looking for 05-07 front end with Harley Lights

tn bb if you want to tow - it'll never surge.

Garrett 38r is another option, but it does surge...

Besides that they're both great.
