it is a t25 on a sr20det. i turboed my d17a2 with a t3/t4, which was to big for the stock motor. i wouldnt plan on running more than 9 lbs of boost to it without getting a new intake manifold, my plastic one broke at about 10 lbs. Your stock injectors can handle about 5lbs if you want more boost youll need bigger 1's. thats about all i can think of off the top of my head post any ques you have ill check back

my buddies making a 350whp on 21lbs, but thats ona d17a2. Im in the process of finishing my setup. The only thing I need is my cam. then I'll break the motor in and slap my kit on. If you build your block and take the right steps you can make decent power reliably on the d17's.
