Default Ebay crap

OK we established the cast mani is OK.
But what about

MAZDA MIATA MX5 T3/T4 TURBO CHARGER T04E TRIM MX-5:eBay Motors (item 250445434269 end time Jun-20-09 17:43:42 PDT)

I know nothing about the T3's.

1. Will this thing spool?
2. Has this blown up on anyone?
3 Have you had good luck with it?

Does anyone know of a china one that is good?

And the TD04-15G. Is it the same flange as a T25.

Some guy was telling me that, it and just didn't sound right to me. But hey if it works. Let me know.

Are we to assume this would be going on a 1.6? If so, spool would be fairly slow and I don't see an outlet housing.

on a 1.6L, expect it to look like this:



I'd compare it to the GT3076 range.

A Chinese turbocharger, being sold by a Mexican, under the false guise of Japanese origin, to Americans.

Couldn't they have found a way to somehow implicate the French and the Koreans as well?

Ive had one just like it, one of the SS autochrome units, worked well. it didn't build usable boost till 3500 RPM, then it was a short trip to red line.

1.8 with wiseco 8.5 to 1 CR.

it would be good if you want a Drag race car.

That would be just fine...... I just don't want something that lags until boost kicks in at 5500rpms.

You do have a 1.8L though. This is going on a 1.6L
If it would build full boost by 4500rpms, that is ok.
