Ok. Just for fun I've compiled a pro cons list for the gt30r, s256, and hx35. All seem to be the front runners.
Gt3076r
Pros:
I already have the lines worked out.
It's a quick spooler
No surprises
Cons:
Pricey
Needs water lines and cooling system implemented
S256
Pros:
Great turbo (more overall power potential even though I'll never use it)
Affordable
Rebuild able
No water cooling
Cons:
T4 housing (needs something to fit it to my exhaust)
New lines for feed and drain
A little slower to respond to throttle.
Odd v band sizes? Needs some adaptation maybe. Not sure.
Heavy compared to Garrett
Hx35
Pros:
Affordable
Sounds like its a great responding journal bearing turbo(again I'm going off what others have said, haven't seen any real data yet).
Rebuild able.
No water cooling
Reliable turbo
T3
Cons:
New oil feed and drain
Response can't be as good as the Garrett but I still don't really know. It's a guess.
Uses a waste gate manifold, needs to have it closed.
Looks bigger but I'm not sure.
Looks heavy but I don't know.
Lots of going off what others have said. No test data that I've seen yet.

These all make an almost equal choice for me.
The Garrett seems like a good choice though more expensive and complicated with the water cooling system.

And why not the k27?
It should also be on the list but I wouldn't want a used one and a new one is too pricey.
Anything I'm missing?
