Default Has anyone ever used a Garrett TB25 on a 1.8?

I am putting a kit for my 2000 model. So far I have the mani, dp, and ss lines feed and return lines. I just found someone with a good deal on a Garrett tb25 turbo off a gst eclipse. I was wondering if anyone had ran one and what they thought of it. It looks almost identical to the GT2554r from this chart http://www.ztechz.net/id1.html. I have really been leaning toward the gt2560 but I ran across this and it seems like a really good deal. $100 no shaft play

The mitsu t25s have a different mounting flange, its not t2. And for 100$ you could get a t25 off an sr20 which does have a t2 flange.

If your power goal is between 250 and 300, get the 2560. If it's between 200 and (maybe) 250, get the other turbo.

Are u sure because it says it's a t25 flange? Also where can I get a sr20 turbo for close to $100 I have been looking everywhere is there a certain forum or site u have seen them on for around $100 because I can't find them under about $400-$500

Mitsu T25s have Mitsu/ TD05 turbine flanges.

And they're even smaller than the typical t25 and probably won't even hit 250whp. More like low 200's.

They'll do ~225 on a DSM through the AWD.

I have seen them on ebay for 100$ the 400-500$ ones are not stock s13 sr20 turbos and if they are thats way over priced.
http://zilvia.net/f/sale-items/39478...injectors.html
thats what u would normally get for the 400-500$ range, s15 t28 ball bearing. I could not find any t25s for sale on there but i didnt feel like spending much time on it either. Check out all the nissan forums you will find one. And yes im 100% sure the flange on the mitsu turbos is not a t2 flange and im also sure that those turbos make less power then a nissan t25, they make less power then the 14b and i dont think a 14b is even capable of 250awhp on the dsms, you might get 250whp with a front wheel drive dsm at like 15+ psi. That turbo on a miata with bandaids will prolly not be able to crack 200whp.

I Found a couple of the t25 turbos on the sr20 forum for around 150-200 but the exhaust flange was a 4 bolt so I guess I will keep looking

I bought one the other day for $85. The guy was asking $120 and I talked him down. He was local too.

I found a guy with a Brand New Garrett GT2560R locally which is what I have been wanting and I bought it earlier for $500 which seemed to be a good deal. Do u clock the ball bearing turbos the same as the journal bearing turbos? I read something saying u clock it differently but don't know how true that is

not sure about the gt2560r, but I have a gt28 off an S14, and I clocked it down, but had to buy a new wastegate and cut a bracket for it. stock wastegate for it wasn't useable unless I had the turbo outlet pointing up. really easy to clock though, just a few bolts to loosen. no dealing with a giant C clip or anything

Yeah the gt2560r and the gt28r are the same turbo. That sucks I can't use the wastegate. What kind did you get?

Is $500 a good deal for a brand new in the box gt28r?
