I will post a picture of mine when it finally arrives from Japan. I opted for slowest shipping possible, 4 to 7 weeks, I am cheap, per the spec miata driver bar joke in the other thread. I will also be a member of the "I own a 60 trim T3 club" then.

Japan?

Thats a ford OEM turbo by garrett (Found on manual SVO's, tbirds, and some XR4TI's), as anti-JDM as possible.

I have the same one.

.60/.63 60 Trim T3.

Hey there turbo buddy. If you take a saw and sander to that outlet you can run it without the flange, just hook a coupler directly to it. Or a 300zx compressor housing swaps right on as well. It has normal inlet/outlet.
Same turbo with the 300zx housing.

Wow, can I join the club too??

I had two of these, one on the right is the Ford one with 0.60/0.63.

The one on the left is the turbo I am currently using, 0.48/0.60 with a super 60 trim wheel, has the nissan housing....obviously.

That compressor looks so similar to a t28 I had... the turbine side is a bit bigger though. I dont know if you could just swap housing or not but the t2 exhaust side would make it fairly quick spooling. As in 7psi by 3 grand i would guess....
