    Re: help

    No idea, get a better pic of the stampings. But soze wise id say its somewhere around a t25/28. It will be quick power but not alot. Just go ahead and spend 200ish bucks on a cxracing/gsp turbo. They are solid peices as long as you have a restrictor and keep it under 15ish psi.

    Re: help

    I've thought about it but it's was free and had been rebuild less the 50 miles before it was taken off. So to save money for other things for the build I would like to make this one work. It will also make for a nice break in turbo.

    yes so do I. This is more so about the of housing so I can make a downpipe. But I think I have have found what I'm looking for. Just waiting on a email to confirm.

    Re: help

    Stingerperformance! They require a core tho. I guess they reuse the flange but weld a correct 3" downpipe to it. O2 bung welded on and everything

    Edit: I myself have the smaller IHI turbo I believe. Water and oil cooled. But from what ive seen these turbos arent too bad and should be pretty decent on a stock motor setup with a good clutch and tires

    How much of a differnt tune with the SAFC are we talking?
    due to spool time being faster so you would need to be richer even lower in the band?

    I originally became interested in this turbo over the t3 60/63 due to the fact I wanted power before 3000rpm...

    Re: help

    Dame here. Most of my buddy's running d series or single cam Honda are running them on stock blocks and make good numbers. 13's isn't bad for this little guy. Found What I've read this should be able to get to 250-300 HP range with out a problem.

    Safc is simplest to "tune," but your only tricking the ecu's factory maps. reworking them makes it work the best/more efficient. its all case by case are far a fuel goes. and what are your plans with the car? you trade off low end power for higer rpm restrictions. small turbos can become a restriction.

    So will my build keep in mind I'll have a fully built head. If Brodie for the FB group is pulling 150whp with just a milled down head, delta 272 cam, heaer, and a b16 itm. I don't see why I wouldn't hit 200+whp with this turbo. Yes it's gonna be all top end power but that's where you lose power with these engines anyways right?

    Re: help

    Where is the 250-300hp on with this turbo? Everything I see says its super small, great for traffic weaving (just like a t25) but becomes a restriction at 6k +.
    I keep finding max psi you can run being 13/15psi depending on the exact trim of the turbo. Im just trying to help ya build something with more room for improvement if you dont like it. Full boodt under 3k is cool but you will be in it alot more esp if u do hwy driving or live in a hilly area.

    Edit: even with a fully build head u wont be making alot of top end power if you have a small turbo that you are maxing out. The powerband with smaller turbos are in the 2500-5000ish rpm.
