I got an s252 sx-e with a small .48 housing from AGP. Should spool pretty quick but get me to 300 whp. If for some reason it doesn't there are a bunch more turbine housing options.

This is anecdotal, but I talked to a guy with a RWD VR6 Turbo GTI who says his CD009 rattles something fierce at idle. He attributes it to using a single mass flywheel.
