Garrett T3 questions

okay I've already read through ALL of these


and my question still isn't answered, i have 2

I've been reading on other sites that it's pretty hard to get a MBC on an internal wastegate setup: the stock T3. I don't want to go hybrid if the housing is still the same, which means I'll still have to keep that d*** internal wastegate, I'm looking for an external setup, that way I can manually control it from the cockpit AND that will pump out around 15-20 p.s.i. AND fit on the stock exhaust manifold.

does anyone have anything in mind of what I should be looking for? I've been searching for answers for 2, yes, TWO days now...

no. not without going electronic, routing an MBC that far is a bad idea. also there is nothing wrong with an internal waste gate till high boost. also, the MBC is just kinda **** in general and internally gated more difficult than an external one to use an MBC? where ever that came from is **** cause they run on the same properties of each other just one is outside the turbo housing one is inside.... woopdy!!!! also 15-20 psi your gonna pretty much need to get a bigger turbo and also that turbo motor isnt going to handle 20 psi stock at least not for long and i wouldnt do it on pump gas that or use meth injection and BIG FMIC setup. and i take it you have a full standalone to run those numbers right? i think your digging a little deep quite quikly, you got a good haul, now take baby steps.... stock swap with exhaust and FMIC and then slowly work your way up the PROPER way.
