Default Cheap T3 for a 1.6

I have an old T3 garret/nissan T3 that I believe is from a Saab - really. It is dying and I am looking for a replacement. In the recent Tacotaco manifold thread, Braineack mentioned that he and Underdog have had good experiences with Cxracing t3's. I believe they both ended up using a 50A/R. All I can see on the CxRacing site these days is the 60A/R that Underdog found to be too big. Are there any other reliable vendors for cheap T3 turbos?

i never said anything about the CXRacing t3/t4.

I do however like the chinacharger pure t3 sized turbo I bought.


the godspeed one is correct. the cxracing one linked is a t4 compressor.

pretty sure i got it from these guys:

UNIVERSAL T3 Internal WG VW Polo Passat GTI Quattro Beetle Turbo Charger | eBay


it's important to find the 42mm/60mm compressor wheel.

Thanks for you advice on this. I ended up buying the T3 recommended by Braineack.

My existing T3 oil feed and drain lines should bolt right up - correct? I would just have to find the correct M10 and M8 bolts mentioned in the vendor's description.
