Default turbo upgrade

Pulled the intake off of the turbo and found 1/2 inch of shaft play. Instead of going with a rebuild or tbird hybrid, i want to upgrade a bit to at least a t3. my concern is the fuel system, and ecu. can they handle the upgrade. i got a guy to weld the vband onto the existing downpipe.

something along the lines of this. I know you have probably heard ebay turbochargers are the suck, but cx racing makes quality stuff, I've ordered a bunch from them.

There's some talk of CX Racing products in another thread, but I can't remember which one.

Yep, they seem to have good reviews. SO far all of the info I've got points to using a 60trim T3, but you'll need a chip and a bigger fuel pump.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but this looks like a helluva deal for a turbo w/ these specs.

Then you must have a chiped ECU and some form of a boost controler already... 16psi is plenty for the stock turbo.

Well, there's sport/normal/soft... I couldn't tell much of a diff either. And mine is useless now, since I changed my suspension.
