Default 89' Turbo mx6

I went junkyard hoping again today and ran into a few new cars in the yard and came across a 1989 2.2L Turbo mx6. I removed all the piping on in the inlet and outlet on the turbo and checked for shaft play and there was absolutely no play in or out and side to side. I was thinking maybe it was recently rebuilt or something.

I dont know the A/R for the cold and hot side but it looked small maybe its a t25?

i'll leave up to your guys and your turbo knowledge to let me know if i should buy it or not.

It's a small IHI, save your time and money. Try searching next time.

On the other hand, snag the injectors, they are worth something.

Grab the turbo I'll buy it. I need to get a replacement for a friend IHI RHB5 VJ11 turbo. I'm not sure if it's from mx6 or ford probe.

they are small little IHIs.

I had one in my 89 626 hatchback. it was weak even at 15psi.

Get the injectors...I'm using those and they're 225 whp capable if you have an NB or run 60 psi base pressure.
