Turbo Recommendations

Hey all,

So I've been wanting a bit more pick up from my little 2009 2NZ powered Yaris, and started to consider a turbo build. I live out in the middle of nowhere so not a lot of experts near me on turbos, so I thought I'd ask here.

Through my own bit of research the most popular turbos for the 2NZ/1NZ platform seems to be a Mitsubishi TD04HL-15 (as supplied in the ZAGE kits), a GT1752 (from a SAAB 9-3 or 9-5, thought I've also read of them being called too small) or a Garrett GC17-250 (although, I was hoping to go something on the cheaper throw together end of a project)

I'm not looking to get massive power boosts. I don't really want to tear my engine down or swap it out for a 1NZ (again, I'm out in the middle of nowhere, i"m having trouble finding one for a good price anywhere near me haha), as my little 2NZ is still fairly low k at 64k kms.

If it was up to you all, which would you use? One of those? Or a different turbo?Any other suggestions? I'm also tempted to look for a Blitz SC kit online, but tempted to go for a turbo for something different to my usual cars.
