Default Adapter plate for WRX turbo still available?

As some of you may know, the TD04H-13T off a WRX uses a weird flange where it connects to the uppipe (or in a miatas case, directly on the header). Rather than the typical T3 or T2 flange, it looks more like a triangle such as the one found here:

http://www.alibaba.com/product-free/...UBARU_GC8.html

I remember reading somewhere that BEGi used to supply an adapter plate for this turbo, but I can't seem to find it anywhere. Anyone know where you can find one, or if one can be made? The reason I ask is because I have my stock WRX turbo just sitting in my garage and I figured I put good use to it. I looked up a thread somewhere and found that the turbo produces great numbers for what I plan on using the car for with lightning fast spool. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I've never seen a WRX adapter...hmmm. If it did exist, a cheap chinese copy will be on ebay. maybe you can take a T2 or T3 flange and weld a WRX flange onto it. Weirtec has WRX inlet flanges, both the 5bolt/up pipe flange and the 3 bolt/turbine inlet flange, if you don't need the extra 2 bolt holes.

Thanks for the info! I'll definitely take that into consideration. However has anyone else seen a WRX flange to T3 or T2 adapter plate already made?

We can make one. And, have made them before. But, I do not think it is listed on the site. Shoot me an email for photos.
Thanks,
Stephanie

BEGi has made one, the designed it when I asked them to make me one to adapt it to a T3 manifold. Great street turbo, just runs out of steam on the top end, but the midrange punch is awesome!

I think the 13t is a little better than the 13c if i remember right. Both are pretty tiny though.

Just searched for this exact topic. Glad I found it here. I just picked up a low-mileage WRX turbo as well for a 2013 boost project.

Thanks for the info. Those are some awesome numbers. I'm only looking to go 6-7lbs. for a little more kick in the daily driving experience.
