Apexi turbo kit. Your motor doesnt produce enough air pressure to spin the large turbine of a t-50 before it would redline. You couldnt reach max boost with it at

You would loose so much power installing the T-50. Your engine doesn't have enough volume of air to even spin that big of a turbo, let alone make any boost out of it. You also need to see how much compression your engine has, to see if it can even handle any boost before installing a turbo.
