Default Holset Turbos

Been thinking about swapping the turbo for a while as my T3 is getting old, and is quite laggy really. Also had a really weird whistle which sounds like air escaping, but it's definitely not boost side.

I keep hearing how good Holset's are, and I've seen some go fairly cheap as they're not used very often here. HX35's seem to go for good money though as they're good for big HP builds.

I'm not looking for a big HP build, probably looking 20-25psi max, but something that spools nicely for a daily driver, but I've got no idea which size would suit my D24Tic.

HX25
HX27
HY35 (9cm exhaust)
HX35 (12cm exhuast).

I've been offered a HX25 new for good money - would this be too small though?

If I remember right all the smaller holsets (anything smaller then the hx or hy 35's) have a t25 flange.

What are you looking to spend? I purchased my super 60 turbonetics brand new for $600.

The hy35 might be worth a try, it has a fairly small exhaust housing and should spool fairly decent, I have one I'm going to try.

Are the holset turbos a bolt on for oil plumbing?

It 150 brand new - but it's gone now. To be fair a HX25 would probably be too small for it then?

Will keep a look out for the HY35. What about the HX30 though? Is that still too small? Want something that will boost well with a bit less lag than my current T3!

Hy35 should be a good turbo for running about 30 psi of boost.
