What kind of turbo is suited for:
A 3.2l motor looking to spool in the 3500 to 4000 range?

I finally have got all of the oil and injection systems and ready to be wired and routed but this turbo is kicking my ass.

um... how much money do you want to spend, what kind of boost response do you want, and how much horsepower do you want?

Understand that you asked a VERY general question. you can use a T28 if you want. You'll have full boost at probably 1700RPM, and will choke off after 4000RPM. You can also fit a huge turbo, like a GT42R, which won't spool until around 5000RPM but will make 1000hp on 35+psi. Like Jacob said, how much boost are you going to run, how much hp do you want, when do you want full boost?

due to the lack of specifics in the original post, i'm gonna go with A:
t04s 60-1
.84 a/r divided p-trim turbine tangential. vband discharge

Personally I would never waste my time putting something old school on a benz or any car for that matter.

You could put a 37R on it that would spool faster than a 60-1 bushing turbo and make gobs more power.

from reading your other posts it seems like you dont have a shit ton a money to drop on any one piece and your makeing the kit yourself so i would probably have to say somethink like what cartmill said. a t4 60-1 or 62-1 maybe t04r. they would give you a very respectable spool and be able to make a great daily driven power and lots more when you want to turn it up. my .02

I would be running 5psi regularly and make a 2 stage controller to run 8 or 10 psi at the flip of a switch.
I have 217 hp @ 5500rpm now at the crank, im looking for up to 400 at the crank but not really looking to surpass that. The car shifts at 6200rpm and never drops below 3500 rpm when your WOTing.

I can get the money for a good turbo now cuase all the other shit is done more or less.
