Not a fan of Borg Warner? Cheaper than precision and turbonetics and more reliable. Goto ForcedInductions.com, tons of options to choose from. T4 housed, 7574 cast wheel, journal bearing, 1.00 a/r here, with full boost by 3800rpm, and that's using 4th gear with converter fully locked up, so a manual would be the same.

Its pretty good IMO calcuates between 20-27$ an hour depending on location.
Yea it's really not to bad if pay. It's just not where I really want to be yet. So I'm busting my ass to get somewhere haha

I looked into Borg Warner and from what I found is the turbo is supposed to be overall bigger and a tighter fit. Didn't really want to mess with that. And that's good news in the spool though. I should be able to hit full boost around 3500rpm then. Maybe a little sooner.

More reliable? thats a pretty bold statement there. I have a Garrett unit I just bought for a future project. Borg warner is a good turbo but precision is a better made unit which is why they are dominating the high performance industry.

Borg Warner makes really good turbos that are proven. There's a reason they are used in a lot of factory turbo applications. Same goes for Garrett. Precision makes great turbos as well. You can get Borg Warner turbos though for cheaper than an equivalent Precision or Turbonetics unit and outperform it. The S475 and S480 turbos are tried and true for 800+hp and 1000+hp applications. If it was me... I'd run twin Holset HX40s. ;)

Borg Warner turbos have lived in diesel trucks for hundreds of thousands of miles and done so for decades. Their reliability is definitely proven. The same goes for Holset turbos.

So long as you have the right converter and gear, the difference between the .81a/r and .96a/r won't be noticeable as far spool goes. The .96a/r will make more power though. With the right cams and converter, spool response when you punch it on the highway will be almost identical.

I know your fond on the BW that's all you ever push but have you tried any other brands?? There is a very big difference between a performance built turbo built to last and a DD turbo built for a factory car which is the reason alot of guys dump those turbos from the factory and go with a well built performance unit.

Unlike a gasoline motor diesel motors don't need much to get them moving with thier high compression motors so Comparing the two is very hard on the same turbo the results will be very different due to the nature of the motors.
