To RS2 or Not

I'm running the garret hybrid turbo from TEC, with MTM code (22 psi at 5300
ft) The k-24 was making lots of noise, so I knew I would be needing to
make a the same decision as you. re-build the k-24, new rs-2 or hybrid.
Pros of the hybrid: lots more power from 5500 - 7000 (I used a software
program called street dyno to *estimate* hp. It said I was making 318hp
at the crank with the hybrid and 268hp with the k-24), cheap: $800 for the
turbo $70 for a 360 degree thrust bearing and when the time comes $59 for
garrett rebuild kits.
Cons: Needed to cut the h20 lines and oil feed and drain lines to install.
More lag, seems like power comes on 300 - 400 rpm later (boost comes on
hard at about 3400 rpm 5300 ft).
I'm very happy with the new turbo

Many thanks to all of you who responded to my query about RS2 vs. the
K24. A couple of you mentioned Ned's/IA's hybrid turbo which apparently
provides more high end power than a K24; less high end power than an
RS2, but spools up more quickly (at lower RPMs) than the RS2. If you
are using this turbo could you please contact me?
