I did a quick, generic search and it seems on some Evo3 16g's you are seeing ~300+ whp on smaller displacement engines....not sure if that is pump gas.

What would you do in designing such a turbo for reliability btw? Also, do you have a price point for such a setup? Or price range?

well you cant compare different engines... im assuming your talking about DSM's... different motors flow differently... and if i remember correctly... subaru heads arent known to be super flowing.... and i do agree... i dont think 16g turbo will cut it... IMO 18g should be the smallest you put on our 2.5L
