Jak Stoll Performance. His are cheaper, but numbers arent as high as SQR.

You should replace your turbo if you are at stage 4+ (Stage 4 hardware and software requirements plus more hardware)
I would say turbo replace at about 290-300whp

GS has the JT 3" turbo back and comes with a 3" DP and full 3" piping, the price is either $527 or $579 depending on 1 or 2 mufflers. $599 for the Viggen system

Jak has an exhaust system, but it costs more than the GS

re: turbo -- Stage 4 and higher, but then you're going to seriously need to think about forged internals

re: tuning -- With a Viggen or a 9-5 Aero, I'd STRONGLY recommend getting your car tuned in person, regardless of who you decide to go with....and you'd want to ask around and find out about those tuners and their experience with T7.

Both of those factors should weigh heavily in your decision. All of the folks named earlier are good choices, but you'll need to figure out who's the best choice for you. Someone's favorite tuner might not be a good fit for you, just as your turner might not be a good choice for them..

Good luck whatever you decide...

Do you have DYNO proof that SQR is better than Jak, Nordic. Amish is useing nordic and put down 260 and 280. SQR i think gets only 250 and 270ish. Me and Amish well have to race sometime see who faster.

Dyno doesnt mean shit.

I heard SQR tends to run a little rich.

I guess it depends on the driver

JT-

The biggest bolt on turbo upgrade for your car is the Garrett GT28RS.
You could also go with the ported aero turbo, TD04HL-18t instead of the 15t.

I couldn't agree more. Having the car tuned in person also gives the tuner the chance to point out and/or correct any pre-existing issues you may have with the car and also to make sure its working 100% to its potential.

There is a gathering at Nick's shop on October 13th. Good chance to get it tuned then.
