my turbo being the ugly step brother :gay: - only related by numbers, not nearly as pretty. This "should" be a nice improvement over your B.

Yeah, ceramic coating really is worth every penny IMO. It never gets yucky and rusted and it also emits a ton less heat. Thats satin titanium 2000F from performancecoatings.com.

The turbo itself was from JGS though the compressor housing says AGP.

I'm thinking a slower, more painful death.



The ceramic coating looks good.

Full boost on the T04B was around 4000 rpm because of compressor surge limit. When it was cold out i would get like 10 psi at 3000 rpm. When hot out it would go from 2 psi to 15 at 4000 rpm.

I'm moving up to a bigger turbine wheel, a bigger WG hole and a more efficient compressor so it should all cancel out and still make boost around 3500-4000 rpm.

Yeah, it's a 48 trim turbine, but its a stage 3. I'm gonna take a nap and then install it tonight.

I dont see how it can be a stage 3 48 trim. The stage 3 is only available in a 76 trim T31 wheel. There simply isnt a 48 trim stage 3 turbine wheel.

Maybe you mean the a/r ratio is still a .48?

Beauty turbo, laptop, wd-40 and 4 bullets. Can't see enough of the shells to identify them. I'm gunna guess .32, 38 hollowpoint, 10mm and a .223

Guns, car parts, computers and lube. Add **** and beer and you've got yourself a party.

The rifle round is 7.62x39. It's a 380 ball, 40S&W hp, 45 ball. I was taking a picture to illustrate the size differential and never put them away.

Dude, there is. It's got a slightly larger inducer and exducer but it is still a .48 trim housing. The inside cavity is just bigger to fit the wheel.

no, there really is no such thing as a 48 trim T31 stage 3 turbine wheel. You have a .48 a/r housing. Trim is the relation of exducer and inducer size and has nothing to do with the a/r of the housing the wheel is fitted in. Learn your turbo terminology.
