OP: guyths I wanna build my setup around a crappy turbo
MT: don't build around a crappy turbo
OP: ok, I'll change some of the other stuff, but still build around a crappy turbo I got for free
MT: doesn't matter if someone paid you to use it, don't build around a crappy turbo
OP: ................so do you think this setup will be ok with this crappy turbo? since it's free?

*an angry mod starts to gather*
MT: time to take out the pitch forks

so me running twin t3/t4 on a 1.6 wont spool well? wtf, my math was perfect though.

If you are going with a T3 footprint, just use the 50trim that everyone on here seems to love.

Certain mental health facilities, such as the Bowen Center, offer low cost evaluations and can probably put you on a medication regimen to help your learning disability.


We are telling you that the turbo itself is not a good choice. How much you paid for it has nothing to do with the advice you've been given.

....thought I could get more trolls from under the bridge with that one.

At the end of the day talk is cheap, and numbers are numbers, ordered my megasquirt mm9495 today, I've got my clutch done, my injectors are in (but not IN), I've got my inner-fooler in, manifold will be done Wednesday, then(as long as it runs) I'll be on the dyno April 1st

You said in the first post it made 105.9 horsepower.

Either way, the engine is already tired. Did you do a compression test?

how do you figure 105whp is tired on a stock 95? thats just about right especially on a mustang dyno.

you are expecting too much. a 95 makes about 128 so it should expect somewhere between 104-109 whp depending on the dyno. mustang dyno you expect less.

He says it only has 77k on it, so it would be highly unlikely that it is worn out at this point. His compression test is solid and consistant.

Now as you all well know, I'm no expert, BUT I'm pretty sure this is an ebay cast manifold that has been polished
