Default Stock Turbo Upgrade, but not looking to go Crazy

Iíve pretty much determined my stock turbo is causing my oil problems. If Iím going to spend money on a turbo I would hate to stay stock, but I donít want to go crazy. On my tune I was at 300whp, id like to get to 350, but if I go to much turbo I'm also looking at injectors, fuel pump and tune. Can I spend 1500 or less and get an upgrade or should I just stay with the stock turbo...


Thanks
Jim

A 20g ($1150) is a very worthwhile upgrade since it is the stock turbo on steroids - great low end spool without the significant power drop off at higher rpms. All you need additionally are 750cc injectors ($200 after core exchange), a fuel pump ($90), and tune ($300-$500). This setup will get you to 350whp on pump on a dynojet

That doesnít seen to bad, I was thinking of staying away from the injectors and pump, but I was over estimating them. I though 400 for the inj and 250 for the pump.

I do the wrenching myself, then I would just have to spring for the tune...

Thanks for the input...

20g is the best bang for your buck and can defiantly take you to the 350whp mark but you would need a set of injectors and a pump...

Deatschwerk injectors are $400 and they offer a core exchange rebate when you send in your stock injectors which is $200. I think the exchange rebate is a little lower for GD STi's.

750cc injectors would be fine with pump or meth. They are $340 directly from Deatschwerks after rebate. Deatschwerks

A walbro is cheap from anywhere, $90.

Blouch TD05 20G with 8cm hotside is $1250 Blouch Turbo Inc. - Our performance turbo upgrades and rebuilds

FP has the 68HTA which is a nice turbo for the money, $899, and will probably make 330whp/360wtq or thereabouts. Great spool for a street/autox car. Forced Performance Turbochargers: FP 68HTA Turbocharger for the Subaru STi/WRX

Here's an exhaustive review of the 68HTA: HTA68: Can Any 16G Compete? - NASIOC

Tune will be $350-500
