I did some reading and I realize your right, so only the gt25 turbos are bb? And is it worth the rebuild or just go with the churbo?

Would you rather have a $200 Garrett or a $200 eBay special. I'd say it's an easy decision

You will need to go buy the t2 tacotaco manifold if you swap to the garrett.

I don't think drilling new holes will work. I am pretty sure you will run into the other holes you already have and have problems. With an adapter plate you will run into the shelf again.

So yeah buying a new t2 manifold is what you need to do if you don't just want to buy the same t3 I use on my setups.

What would you do, my budget isn't really that big of a deal as long as switching to the Garrett doesnt cost 400$ more. Should I switch to the Garrett? Is it really that much better just being a run of the mill sr turbo?

My bad I completly ignored the fact that you already have a t3 manifold. China turbo would be your best bet

Alright so I ordered the exact turbo deezums linked too, why change what I already have? I still need to fab up a cover for the external wg, tacotaco never gave me one and it's not even worth the effort to chase one down. New cxracing rad was bought, then a new throwout bearing to replace while my clutch is out. I know that the Subaru 440cc are basically plug and play, measurements say that they are around .5 inches shorter. So I will have to get the rail to sit shorter. Also question. How much of the shelf has to be cut? Also where can v bandd be bought? And bolts or cutted rod to use as outer studs, the inner ones will fit?

The t3 tacotaco does not come with the ewg block off plate, the t2 one does. Why they only ship the plate with one and not the other is a mystery. No clue on how much of the shelf needs to be cut, I am not cutting mine to find out. V-band can be bought from mandrel bending solutions. Studs for what? Attaching the turbo to the manifold? Just goto Ace and buy the M10x1.5 studs they sell there.

You might of missed it earlier in the thread, my exhaust manifold studs were seized to the nuts so they also came out, on top of that the taco taco sides are alot thicker than the inner stud holes

Ohh those studs. I just was not thinking, use bolts for the long ones, then just screw the other studs in. Viriiguy has a thread about possibly finding longer studs to use on the ends, but honestly bolts should work just fine for a street car.

I buy my v-bands from this guy on ebay. Good product, fast shipping, great service. He called me to confirm an order one time because i bought a bunch of SS304, then accidentally ordered a mild steel one. So he checked in an made sure I got the SS one instead.

sskrystalautosupply on eBay

I buy the male/female ones.

alright so the turbo that deezums directly linked to was recalled? I ordered one and it was then refunded. But it said it shipped a full 24 before I even got that email. Anyway I can't find a .42/.48 turbo anywhere. The only ones I can find are $300+ and have to be ordered from china. Should I wait? what should I do?

There are some on a boat on their way from China right now. In 2 or 3 weeks you should be able to get one. You either wait, or buy a t2 manifold and fine a t25 of some sort.

So I've reached the point of no return, like when your up in a really tall tree, look down, and wonder how the **** your going to get down. So much stuff in the mail and it looks like I might be waiting on a part for a while, great. Some picture updates to come later

Default You probably thought I failed

I didn't realize how many threads failed around here just having a goal and either being beat to death (verbally) and just stopping. Anyway so I decided to stop being a puss and ordered the right T3. How could I be so stubborn? Then I bought the rad, exhaust pieces, muffler and hanger. Nothing else really posed too much of a challenge, just time and lots of research. I also found out how much of a help just searching can be!!! I also realized going into things that I though I had "figured out" was really



But while waiting for everything I decide to grind and paint my rear subframe, here are some crappy pictures if me sanding the rear brace. So now the car isn't bad at all rust wise for a NE car






Then stuff came, all in one day too









Bands of V

Also while drilling the pan (and buying more drills and taps I didn't need) I saw this lil guy. Didn't hit it but came damn close. wat iz it?!?!



Also pulled my A/C some where between then and now. But the real teaser is I got the car to start. Ran for about 15 seconds then died. My "custom" down pipe might be too close and hit either the trans or the front sub frame. I know the exhaust hits on the driver side axle but its just a start no drive so screw it. My Afr's were off by a lot and looked really lean but I think the v band right before the o2 sensor wasn't fully sealed. But IT RAN!!! baby steps. T.S. also keeps losing my injector settings and sets it back to 265 instead of 305, don't worry the 440's will be going in soon. I suck at taking pictures but I try and snag some more when i work on the car tomorrow.
