A T3/T4 turbo is a generic term. A T3/T4 can be a T3/TO4E, a T3/TO4B, a T3/TO4S, or any one of a few other combinations. Being a T3/TO4E does not automatically make it a ball bearing turbo. T3/TO4E wheels are newer and more efficient than TO4B wheels. Typically the TO4E wheels will actually spool quicker while supporting more horsepower. For a stock integra LS i'd run a T3/TO4E 50-trim with a stage 3 turbine wheel and a .48 or .63 A/R turbine housing, from Precision Turbo and Engine this would be called an SC5031E. Call them up, 219-996-7832, and ask for advice on what to run.
