Nothing wrong with ATP other than the price, WideOpenTuning (Kelly) helps relieve some of the sticker shock.

Oh Jenn... she's doing good. Finally got her car back after being in the bodyshop for over a month. The MSM for concrete splashed on it at her work, then we hit a deer the day before we were going to take it to Magnum. So she ended up getting the nose and mazdaspeed lip replaced and the whole front end repainted and the whole car highspeed buffed/waxed/cleaned and now the car looks better then it did new!

I put the FM intake/TB elbow on along with a Hallman boost controller and now the car sounds like a Leer jet taking off lol.

Im only going to take off the s/c right before i go turbo.... i dont have all the stock parts to go n/a. I've got a couple people that already said they want the JRSC with all the goodies on it sans the intercooler. I jsut need to talk to Thomas about a custom DP, oil line/drain install. I'm almost wondering if i should drop my piping from 2.5" down to 2"..... but that will come later if i need to.

leave the piping, it will save you a lot of trouble, nothing wrong with it as is.

oops, what if you, say, forgot to mark the wheels?

yeah looks like a t4 wheel.
Based on what... no measurement, no frame of reference at all? LOL, T3 and T4 compressor wheels look the same save the actual size. SVO turbos were true T3's... If it does have a 75mm exducer then I would agree that it is a T04E compressor... but otherwise, who knows.

You can't tell just by looking at it. I agree that the numbers sound right though.

I've yet to see a t4 wheel with curved blades or vise versa, and it physically looks larger than my super60 wheel, which is that largest of the t3s.



that's my old 50trim wheel vs my old t40d wheel, but you get the idea.


Damn Mark, we should have had you come out to the Mazda meet on Wednesday, you could have pointed and laughed at me in person. (yes you really would have if you had been there)

OK guys.. thanks for the help!! I am now the new owner of that turbo To me it was worth the little extra because its been professionally rebuilt and comes with the wastegate/flapper assy. My next thing is to buy that flapper that ATP makes and get my manifold/oil lines..... then its a matter of remocing the s/c and header, installing the turbo and makign a DP...... yummy.

Now i dont know weither i want to get a inlet flange and make the inlet pipe that way.... or send the compressor housing off and have it machines out and a universal sleeve pressed in.....

If i get a used turbo, im going to send it off for rebuilding anyway... i dont trust used turbos from people i dont know.... im sure that'll be $200+ to rebuild a turbo.
what are you going to name it?



I ran that turbo on a 16v vw a few years ago. It spooled early, and made 262 with lots of head room at 14psi.

yeah, there is no doubt that im going to be goign with the ATP wastegate setup. I told the seller that i need the actuator and hopefully he will remember!

Can i change the compressor housing without changing the wheel or anything? I thought that in order to change a housing, the wheel needed to be changed too.

as long as the housing is machined to accpet your trim wheel you dont gotta change nothing. but it may just be cheaper to just get an adapter.

i read at cr.net that you got you junk sandwiched, everything getting sorted out?

yeah, the car is ok... still driveable. Both head lights need to be replaced, both tail lights, rear bumper needs serious refinishing or replacement, bumper brackets, front bumper needs repair and the hood is bent. Nothing looks bad from 20ft away, but upon closer inspection the little things add up. Waiting for State Farm to come look at the car so i can get it in the shop :(
