I know this could go many different ways....

I currently have a 16g.  It does very well but I've been thinking of going bigger....possibly a 20g?  Id like to achieve maybe 325hp....I am still using the stock exhaust manifold...And would prefer to keep it...

I'm currently running:

Wiseco forged pistons
52mm TB
Ported njv head
Evo3 16G
Tuned on Megasquirt2 by Scott

What would be the best option to reach 325hp on my TBI?   Should I stay with a Mits turbo or go with another brand?  

As for leaving a Mits turbo and getting another brand, I'm not sure about oil lines/coolant lines/downpipe bolting up?

Turbine size dictates horsepower as it limits air flow.  Compressors can flow more air, they just become more inefficient, turbines reach a point where they just won't flow any more air thus limit power.  Move to at least an 06 turbine, read up on starquestrescues efforts on TBI.

I agree with Scott. I always liked the TD06 wheel for sure.
