Default GT25 Turbo Help Needed!

Looking to buy a turbo to start my setup off, will a Focus RS GT25 fit onto a HKS manifold if so what downpipe should i use or will i need to get one made up?

Yes, there is no downpipe and turbo combo associated with the HKS manifold; it's only sold by itself. You'll need to have a bespoke one made for your app.

I think so. You need to ask the seller if it's a standard T2 mounting flange, as that's what the manifold uses.

That turbine flange looks a little different than a normal T2 flange. I would hold off on this particualt turbo and find a GT2554R off a MazdaSpeed Protege.

Yea didn't go for it in the end, spoke to phil at performance5 in the UK, (Regarded as the man in the UK to speak to about 5's) best way is a T28 from a S13 FM manifold and DP, should give a good setup hopefully

I would use a Bell Engineering manifold and DP, but if you can find a used FM that will work too.

FM DP won't fit a nissan turbo. they use a slightly altered 5 stud rear exit on the exhaust flange. the t28 i bought off an r33 wouldn't fit the fm2 downpipe i had.

Is the MazdaSpeed Protege a Mazda 3 or 323 in the UK, whats the engine a 2.0 turbo or 2.3?

Shame about the nissan turbo fitment, i refuse to buy a kit!

the mazdaspeed protege was just before the 3 was introduced. the 323 was a hatchback from 86-94 (sedan option from 86-89 i believe) in the states. the protege began in the US in '90 and looked like a 323 from the front, but has always been a sedan here from that year.

the turbos that were used on the 323s were IHI. same for the protege gt.

mazdaspeed protege

it's 2.0 turbo.
