Sup fellas. Sorry I haven't been around lately but I have been working with my 6. First off, I went all the way, buying the f2t block off a friend for 100 bucks. All the things needed for a complete gt make over I got from a 92 probe EVERYTHING for 300 bucks. I had had the block bored .030 over and had new turbo pistons put in. The wiring is a little confusing but I think I have everything down pat. My ? is, how much more power is gained by having my stock pgt turbo rebuilt and upgraded with a t-bird turbo coupe compressor housing and wheel. Ric at racing mazda has told my that he can have it upgraded and rebuilt with a completely new mid section for 650 bones. So what do you guys think, is it worth it? I think so, every turbo shop in my city wants 7 bills and up. And the turbo is rebuilt be turbonetics!

Better off buying a t3/t4 hybrid and then spending the money on a log header kit.

Yup, I say ditch the IHI or get a 16g bolt-up hybrid from karathos on PT. That would be a better deal, and a better turbo.

For the kind of money you are talking about I'd say what everyone is saying. Ditch the IHI and buy something bigger. T3/T04's can be had for less than you are thinking about spending.
The other option is to get the tbird and do the upgrade yourself. From what I hear and read it isn't that hard to do and will save you a lot of money.

How much money for the t3/t4 hybrid, is it new, for under 600 dollers, the reason being is that I already have the money for the upgrade/rebuild. If someone hear can hook it up for about 5 bills im down for sure.

Well, I mainly keep an eye on Ebay, they come and go on there for under $500 all the time. Quality may be an issue buying off there though, b/c you never know. A local shop I believe can get one for $550 since I just asked about it the other day. I still need to talk to them some more about it though. I should be able to do so tomorrow, so if you want me to ask while I am there just say so and I will. There is one place online that sells them new for like $700, but like I said, I have a local shop who can get me a new one for $550.
