Depends on your goal. I know holsets are always a good choice, just depends on what you're looking to get out of it. What did you use when you did the conversion?

Hey it's been awhile since I checked in on JDMCity, but are you still looking for a turbo? What are you looking for as far as turbos? Guess better question would be what do you want to use the turbo for? What is the flange on the manifold for that kit? I would contact Sean at A-Spec in Schaumburg, IL and discuss the options. He was the one who helped me decide and put together my single turbo kit on the FD. Lots of good info in this link too: http://www.rx7club.com/single-turbo-rx-7s-23/
I believe Howard Coleman is spending alot of his time researching the single turbos for this car too. He has a huge thread about it in that sub-forum I posted.

FYI, my kit is not a high hp set-up the focus for it is on response and usable power since it will be used more for track days/time trials, light focus on autocross, while maintaining streeability. I chose to not aim for high hp because...well...I want my engine to last. The kit I got was a slightly modified Precision Turbo kit with PT6165 Ball-Bearing turbo that he sells. I am unfortunately still in the process of finishing up this project.

Glad to see another FD driver in Iowa. There are so few of us.
