Exclamation Correct T25?

I have been reading up alot and want to start putting together a T25 setup for my NA 1.6. I will make a noob into post tonight ... I just want to make sure this is the right turbo to start.

The kid is saying its off his SR20, but im pretty sure they aren't a 5 bolt downpipe. I thought they were 4?

He wants 50 bucks for it and i am going to rebuild it. Does it look right to you? The downpipe is throwing me off.

doesn't look like any I've seen. Plus the compressor blades look iffy. Extruded tips or something odd/cool.

here's what one looks like:

That compressor looks like it ate something it shouldn't have. Run away.

rebuild kit 60$. Get the shaft balanced 60$. Then the cost of a blown turbo 50$.

simple math states that 180$ would be on the cheap side. Thats if you did it yourself. You can find NEW t25's for that cheap. Do youself a favor and buy one new.

Ron's turbo service will balance it free if you buy the rebuild kit from them for $80. $25 if you dont buy it from him (great service btw), but you really don't need to rebalance if all the turbo needs is a rebuild. Just mark the wheels and shaft and install them in the same position. Thats what a turbo shop would do. IMO OEM>chinacharger so unless you can find a new OEM T25 for $130 I say rebuild is the way to go.

I would never buy a chinacharger. I have a AGP/Turbonetics turbo on my other car and i love it. I wish i could find a new OEM T25 for that price. I will be looking out for a used one in need of a rebuild though.


Thanks again guys.

Yeah that is NOT an OEM Nissan Sr20 turbo.

Go on nicoclub.com or zilvia.net and find yourself a blown T25 from a sr20... Rebuild kit is < $100 ... Mark the orientation of everything so you can keep the stock balancing and jsut rebuild it yourself. I had 2 blown turbos off of my sr20 I had in HS. I spent under $100 rebuilding one and called it a day.
