That would definitely require a clocking and a custom downpipe.

that's one hella small t4 compressor wheel, if anything it looks like a straight t3. Would need a new wastegate however.

that is a tbo335, chrysler turbo. It has a goofy 3 bolt inlet and a non-standard t3 flange which has to be redrilled to use on a normal manifold. The O2 housing is also useless trash.

Don't buy that thing unless you can get it cheap enough to spend $85 w/ g-pop shop to have it modified for standard slip fit compressor inlet and re-drilled for standard t3 turbine inlet.
