New set up ideas

Hello. I'm currently pondering a plan to upgrade soon in the future to possibly a bigger turbo. Currently my mods are as far as performance are:

MAP EF2 turbo
1000cc ID injectors
DW65 fuel pump
AEM intake
ETS intercooler and pipes
Grimspeed EBCS
AMS downpip
Perrin catback

tuned by CBRD via Cobb accessport. I'd like something that minimizes lag and can be safely ran with stock block. I currently have 70000 miles on the engine but last I had a compression check, everything was fine.

That's a bit of a pickle because bigger turbo= bigger lag. Plus anything bigger and you're really starting to push the limits of the block. How about an MHI-18k? Or maybe CBRD's Twin Scroll RBX kit.

You need to quanrify what you would consider laggy. I'm happy with a setup that comes on in the 4-4500rpm range, like a good turbo kit (ETS, AMS, STM) with a Precision 5858 or Gen2 5558 would. Especially because it will make really good power on pump gas (500ish) and E85 (600ish). All while actually being easier on the engine than any stock frame turbo due to reduced back pressure and heat.

Turbo kit is probably best option if cost was not an issue.
But with your current set up you could probably Just do a turbo upgrade to a FP Red or GTX 3576r and manifold , E85 if you have access to it. Proven set ups with those 2 turbos with great results.

I was thinking of moving a way from stock frame turbos and maybe looking at a turbo kit such as the ones CBRD offer. Looking for reliability as well since I dont really want to build the motor.

I only hear great things about the CBRD kit - kinda wish i went that route if I was to start from the beginning again. 'No ragrets' though

I would stay away from EFR turbo's. They don't make the best power per pound of boost, and they make a lot of back pressure. The precision 5858 is a proven great option on the X, the gen2 5558 should aslo be even better. Pair them to a Vband hot parts kit and make awesome power.
