Just did a quick look:

1. ~50lb/min max flow for the 2.8" housing on the ATP.
2. 49lb/min and 10cm2 inlet area on the blouch. Uses a Garrett turbo so i assume ~2.8" housing
3. 49lb/min-56lb/min; 7-8cm2 inlet area; 2.4"-3" compressor housing on the FP (but it looks like they're not making them anymore).

All in all, they're pretty much identical (price, specs, etc). Expect around the same power for all. I'd say look for best warranty, customer service and of coarse best deal. If i had a choice between the 3, i'd say the blouch but this is just based on the numbers i was looking up.

Quick question... What supporting mods are going with it? injectors,intercooler,which exhaust, who is gonna tune it, etc.

I liked what i read about the dom 2.5r and i know ryan speaks good about the turbo because of personal expierience with it.

Blouch Dom 2.5XTR. I had the old Dom 3 and loved it but would get the 2.5 XTR if I still had the Subie. I wouldn't recommend buying a used FP turbo.

You just say the Garrett cause thats your name. But really, the Garrett would be my choice, and like Nights said. PnP everything you can before you throw it on.
