T3 flange. Minor to no modifications needed. This is 1100 brand new. Specs below.
Borg Warner S252 Turbo also known as the S200SX with 55 lbs/min flow rating
::Compressor:: (cold side)
- Wheel: 52mm Inducer / 70mm Exducer w/ Extended Tip Technology
- Housing: 3.00" air inlet / 2.50" charge pipe outlet
::Turbine:: (hot side)
- Wheel: 69mm Inducer / 61mm Exducer (Made of Inconel 713 for high-temperature operation)
- Housing: Bullseye Power Stainless Steel 0.55 A/R T3 Exhaust Housing (Custom Ordered and was $400 by itself new)
By extending the ends of the compressor wheel, BorgWarner has effectively
increased the pressure ratio, efficiency and flow of the entire compressor.
Another factor that increases the efficiency of the turbo as well as overall
flow is the height of the compressor wheel blades. The BorgWarner extended tip
version is over 20% taller than the standard 50 trim. The theory that the longer
the air stays on the blades the more boost you can run and the more air it will
flow thus improving the aerodynamics of the turbo.
This extended tip compressor
wheel is rated at more than 55 lbs/min vs. the standard 50 trim at only 49
