Turbo question

With the mods I have in my sig. Am I better off staying with my stock OBS turbo or would a turbo with a 1.0 housing work better? It runs good now but the turbo seems to lag a bunch. Once it spools up your gone but it just seems to take awhile.

I use the truck for daily driving and towing my camper. How would a 1.0 turbo do running at 2700 rpm towing my camper down the interstate for hours at a time?

Give me your thoughts and opinions, good or bad.

The 1.0 housing should work perfectly in your situation. In fact if you don't rev the crap out of it with your foot to the floor at high rpms a .84 would work even better. Would just need to make sure you don't run it up over 30 psi much. The 1.0 housing would be the safer choice.

Thanks Geoff. I think I'll do some looking around. I think I'd be better off getting a new turbo versus just changing turbine housings. What is a good turbo to get?
