If you want a BB turbo then they only come in water cooling due to the bearings. Even with journal bearings, If i had a choise, Id always always go water cooled.

What boost did you want to run?

my vote is a water cooled DTS kit. go see MTQ.
I've got 2 of them. one is running stock boost and the other is at 20 psi with cooler and some turbo mods.

The MTQ kits are the best of both, they are Water cooled and Oil cooled Bonus! and a reliable Turbo system that is playing safe while getting good performance.

Recommend it here to, running MTQ on my GQ TD42

A GT2860RS with a 0.64 rear should be fine to then, much higher and personally Id be moving to a .86 rear.

Journal bearings are last centuries technology. Bloody railways realised how crap they are in 1930....

Also recommend the DTS Turbo.
Just a tip if you decide on a DTS, ask them to supply with a GU type air box (go's where the pre-cleaner is now). This will save you headaches and money, later when you fit a cooler.
