well my buddy with a vw got a bigger turbo and intercooler so i flat out asked if i can have his stock ones and he had no problems handing them over. I noticed that the low end has pretty descent power so i figured the turbo would help on the high end where it feels like power cuts out

Youre gonna need a bigger turbo than a stock v dub..... That turbo will go into choke at about 3krpm..... then all it does is over heat the air and any gains are lost....

Gonna have to do a LOT of reading on sizing a turbo....LOL i suggest starting with Corky Bell's book, Maximum Boost... Lays out how to do most all of the turbo stuff the right way...
