The one and major thing I can't wrap my brain around is the cobra delete unless of course the updated cobra is adaptable... I assume to some extent all that is really needed is a stock location turbo and a coupler....?

The GT3076 is a good turbo, but beyond the air inlet piping, something else to consider is the steel oil and coolant lines vs flexible braided hoses.
I haven't found any flexible braided lines that don't wear out over time and use--that's a high heat area. You can insulate flex lines to extend their life, that slows things down, or swap them at some time interval before they fail, but left alone flexible tubing will get hard and crack eventually.
People run adapters with flexible lines all the time, they're not like instant death or anything, but compared to the factory steel lines that don't really wear out for the life of the car, you're adding unreliability and new higher wear/failure items if you go the flex line route.

I am looking into the gt3076 as a good overall render of power. I am wondering if the stock location is a possibility with this turbo also what happens to the cobra pipe? Can it be used with a upgraded cobra or is a adapter needed? And if so what is needed to make it possible?

Hi Jameson, was just thinking to text you.
Sorry to hear you are not liking the turbo...
ever get it on a dyno?

|Jameson||400 crank or 400whp? Pump gas 93, E85 or both?|

I am building a b234 block out side of the car on a motor stand to minimize downtime of the car during the motor pull.
90.5mm Wössner Pistons
147mm Verdi Rods
9-5 b235 Timing Cover
9-5 b235 Oil Pan
Everything else... timing chain, balancing chain, guides... are going to be replaced with new... I may even do the balance chain delete.???
I am planning on having the pistons milled to utilize the b235 head gasket ...
for the time being this will be the install on the stock head until funds provide.:. Also a lot less room consuming pulling the head as I have a t5 Spg project going on in the garage.
My question is which turbo should I eventually go with?
The most practical seems to be the gt2876r? Stock Location, new oil and water lines with a new manifold (GS) There is also the EFR7064... with a twin it seems fancy. I don't know how that would work in the space in the front... any intel?
The powerband goal is a reliable 400. A fun in the mountains and track car...
