good idea about the IHI cause it spools faster but dont they get inefficient past 18psi? and im assuming your running more than 18psi as of right now correct? so maybe a hybrid? i dont know much about them. do they spool any faster? and what exactly is a hybrid?
a hybird is a combo of a t3 turbo and a t4 turbo or at least mostly refered to on this board. the bennifit of a hybird is more boost simular to the t4 but will lees lag time keeping the t3 response.

OK I will probably get trashed for saying this but for an auto-x car an IHI turbo from an '87-'88 Turbocoupe would be better. Very fast spool-up and better throttle response. I auto-x an XR4Ti so I know how you feel, coming off the corners can be a PITA waiting on boost but at least you have a T-5 and can shift better than my old T-9!
i wouldn't go to an ihi for the reason that they do top out at 18psi and the t3 you have is good to 22psi or so. i have raced my car a few times on the road course at sir and most the time you can keep it under boost at all time so lag isn't really there but the extra lbs of boost will let you get/pass others on the straights

Would I see any change with going to a larger injector?

I am truly at a loss and dont know what to do. I love the car as it is but I, like most everyone else, would like it to go faster and handle better.
the larger injectors would help so you won't lean out when pushing it on the straights at full boost for sure. bigger tbody? for quicker throttle response (note i did not say hp gains, jury is still out on that one)
