And when your done modding the Porsche style turbos, you still have factory style junk- with the garrets, you have many more options and also, they continuously improve the wheel selection. Boxxersix will tell you that Porsche turbos are not the best and Garrets are a much welcome improvement. If these turbos really use the mitsubishi internals, then that could be an option, Porsche style turbos are not good for big power.

Now, to give you a bit of money saving info...
The way that guy has his car setup (the yellow one) requires the use of a scavenge pump. If you get the TT headers, I would then extend them so turbo center housing is placed above the oil level of the motor so you could just empty them into the valve covers the way protomotive does. This makes things much simpler.
James, you should talk to Glenn (Purplehaze) about his setup, I am sure that he will be a wealth of info for your decision.
