Looking for Turbo Recommendations

I have a FBO N54 and now need to switch out turbos. I have been looking at the RBs, but don't need to drop 4-5 grand on these.

I am looking for opinions on what you guys recommend.

The old ones tapped out on me. I'm FBO and MHD tuned so I'm sure that was part of it. Since I'm changing them I would like to boost HP also. Leaning towards the Vargas Stage 2 at this point

I've been thinking about the pure 600 turbos for when my stock turbos go. They are pretty new, price looks right.

If you plan on staying twins I would go either stock, Pures, or RB. Nothing else. After that I would just go single.

Ive been running MMP gen 3ís for a year (8k mikes) no issues. If I had to do it all over again Iíd go single. But thats cause this isnít my daily and I want even more power.

I daily my car, and like the idea of not having to run the PURE 600s maxed out and being at 550HP, having said that the shop that I like recommends the single turbo for anything more than that. I am currently running a flex fuel tune from MOTIV and think if I stick with that set up it will be a fun car. I can always play with the boost target for 93 and get more by running e60.
My shop would recommend a doc race set up for single.
