Hey, I'm a noob having trouble finding info on the turbo that came uninstalled with my '90.
It's a Garrett, #'s on stamped plate are JIM025579, and 2901098000 (same as another thread here, except his numbers were JIM...(same) and "1901...")
Temporary goal is to run it with a Bipes, BEGI FPR, 1.8 injectors, and the mani and DP in the pics... and save up for a MSPNP or the like this summer, with proper I/C, wideband, Torsen, etc...
So... in all my noobness...
how do I determine that this turbo is in fact approx 5-6lbs as the seller claimed? Besides possibly an I/C, am I completely missing anything else?
I understand the "you might blow it up without 'XYZ' additional parts" situation... this setup is going on a higher mileage 1.6, and I have a 55K 1.6 spare in the garage... so I can take a chance for now to get some boost... and if I do blow the ---- up... at least I'm not SOL for good.haha
Also... another reason I'd like to find more info on this turbo is... there's just a pinch of shaft play. It doesn't touch, but if I can track down info on it, I should prob rebuild it while it's out.
Here is my crapload of pics...
Turbo3 - plate#'s
Turbo4 - WG
RX7 460cc injectors (i think)
1.8 265cc injectors
