I know right? Plus it will drop right into my current setup. The only thing I'm *slightly* worried about is possibly having to cut out my shelf a little bit. I've been planning on cutting up the drivers side shelf to fit a bigger downpipe anyway, so a bit off the side wont matter much to me. Nothing a little weld and some paint wont fix

Ill be swapping over my current wastegate actuator and a vband housing. There are some auctions that include those, but why pay for what I already have?

A couple of things to note though, at least with my turbo I had to:

Weld the wastegate flapper, it was like mm too loose and would get stuck.

The oil fitting was a bitch, I just eventually got it welded to keep it seated.

The oil drain didn't match a garret tb28's fitting so I had to drill out the fitting and get it welded to make it work.

I also had the vband cut off and the begi downpipe welded on...

I spent like 165 on the turbo...add in the BS extra stuff and it was about an additional 20(for the welds).


I'm curious if the tb28 and the t3/t4 ebay turbos share the same exhaust flange...

Jeff I want to go for a ride in your car.

Dustin, you are just about closer to me than anyone else here as the crow flys yet you are so far away logistically. We should still try and meet up someday somehow.
I'll be probably coming into Washington this summer to do some drag racing. I'll keep in touch

I was going to jump on this one, ar42 so it's a good amount smaller, but I'm not looking for much

That is basically what I'm running currently. Too small for my taste :(. It is a *good* size for a miata though

Will do. I plan on doing comparisons of different configurations because I'll have a .63ar hotside and a .48ar hotside.

I also have an email into their support to figure out what they recommend as far as an oil feed line. I've heard some people say a restrictor helps. I'm dubious but I want to hear what they've got to say.

I ended up putting one in mine, but like I said the difficulty was the oil feed fitting. I think the 4an fitting or whatever I used didn't work very well.

Put a screen filter on your intercooler to catch all the debris from the exploding compressor wheel.








Just kidding.
