My d16y7 with a z6 mini me swap has a turbonetics branded Garrett t5 turbo on it. Running 10 lbs. I bought it this way, seems to drive good, but tons of turbo lag. Should i go down to a t4 or a t3?

That picture is pretty bad. But it looks like a big ebay t3/t4 turbo.
Also that wastegate can dump exhaust into the inlet of the turbo causing problems while hitting max boost.

Also idle could be due to alot of things.
Normally its a bad tune.

Looks like your standard ebay kit. I'd expect it to spool at 5000 and make 250 hp. +1 on directing the waste gate properly.

I didnt catch that the frist tome but it does seem like the downpipe flange is welded to the turbo.
