    Top mount turbo set up

    Looking to have a change up and wanting to go for a larger turbo and go top mount, Iíve seen a kit that gives you all the pipe work and mani. I just have a few questions. The kit fits a holset hx35 but as Iím not looking to go for bigger than 400 bhp would this been a good turbo or would it be laggy as I was planning on a garrett gt2871r or the 3071r? Whatís the best option for sub 400bhp and does any one do a full kit inc turbo. Also I did notice that the holset twin scroll is almost half the price of the gt2871r are they as reliable?

    Thanks

    if your planning on gt2871 or the 3071 then there is no need to top mount. both fit with a low mount manifold and save you the hassle. a GT3071 will get you over 400hp.
    To be honest even for big power applications there is little need for top mount with the GTX series turbos, a GTX2871R is a 480-500hp capable turbo.

    A gtx 2860 gen 2 on a stock manifold will flow your power goals.
    Littel to none pipework needs to be done. And ofc spool is in a toltaly different league than the old school turbos u listed.
