Default ...B.W.S... who makes the best, in your opinion

Hello all, I haven't been around for awhile, I actually traded my pt for a 75 Camaro but I missed it so much that I traded back...lol...
I'm looking for some opinions on who makes the best bws or just some pro's and con's about the different bws's that's available. I've found 4 companies that offer them, I think it's 4 anyway. Also, build time and core charge is a big thing for me. I would like to keep my stock turbo and who want to wait 10 weeks for one to be built?..lol. Also what are some good combo's, as in supporting mods. I plan on tearing my pt apart and getting some head work done and planning on replacing timing belt and water pump and oil pump because I have no idea how many miles are on the belt. Plus why wouldn't I replace belt after head work? Lol. I really wish I could afford a thumper head (I think that's what it's called..the one that nitro makes?) I'm not planning on going toooo crazy, but I think the wife is going to let me play with about 1,000 bucks. Oh by the way, my pt currently has stage 1, c.a.i. , plastic intake, 2.5 exhaust, b.o.v. , 5 speed car. That's about it for current mods. Any and all opinions are GREATLY APPRECIATED...

Yep. The music is what makes it great.

For those wondering, a BWS is a big wheel stock turbo. Some folks take a stock turbo, do some machining and put bigger turbines in it. Thus the "big wheel" part. I figure this is something right down Nitro's alley.
