which turbo do i use??

please help!!
i have a 96 wrx. it has a z4 ecu and at min has a td04 turbo on it. i read threadson here and others that it should have a td05 on it. i have bought a td05 one but have now read that it will have loads of lag. i just wondered which turbo would be better to use? i have a decat full exhaust and a green panel filter.just wondered which turbo is better to use.i live in the city and dont really use the motorways that much? any help in welcome.

Stick with the TD04. Will be fine for your use as sounds like your not going for more power. Also if you switch turbo's you'll need a remap which will cost upwards of 500.

if mapped for it the td05 shouldn;t be too laggy, will be slightly more than the TD04, but the TD04 is prob the fastest spooling turbo out there, it just doesn;t have the grunt to get more than about 260 ish bhp
