turbo upgrade for ng900se help

so I am trying to figure out what it takes to upgrade or mod my turbo. i have the factory T25 turbo on my car. is it possible to simply replace the turbine with a slightly larger one? for example up to a 60 trim. If I do that will I have to replace the compressor housing too? i think I understand this stuff, but obviously not sure.

I don't know about the garretts but the mitsu units allow you to just swap center housings.

A good upgrade would be a Mitsu TD04 15T from Viggen or 00-02 9-3 SE

I had Limit engineering upgrade my impeller to a newer better unit. It was only $450 and now I have a T28.

I thought you had an N/A car? So I guess you went through with the turbo upgrade?
