T3/T4.....turn up the boost and get it tuned, whats with everyone running low boost. Im making 238.5hp at the wheels with stock internals in my Z6 so I dont see why 200whp would be any problem for you being that you have a good set-up and good management.

this has been covered soo many times, you need to get it tuned!! 8 psi is a safe # for stock internals with nothing else done and being tuned properly with some diff inj. Stock inj are only good to around 6 psi if I'm not mistaken.You can run more boost, but I'd reccomend you put in arp head studs and change the head gasket. Levi is running 14psi on stock internals and has been fine, besides blowing a head gasket, but he has a very good tune and has now installed arp head studs. Tuning is the key to having a safe, reliable, long lasting turbo setup. To give you an idea mine put down 195 whp and 146 torque on 8-8.5 psi with a greddy kit, crome, rc 440 inj after being tuned.

it all depends on ur power goals for daily driver i would recomend t3 and saying u have a built up motor. t25 is more all time dd but t25 will give u almost no boost lag and it will stop boosting at about 5500-6000 you wont get any more power.

PSI is relevant to turbo size. 8 psi on a t25 isnt the same as 8psi on a SC61.

actaully psi is psi but the air per volume is what you mean.
