That's a MSM turbo, who the hell broke the shaft on it? That's pretty intense. Have you talked to Deadbolt turbo upgrades to find out if they can fix it or if the part is replaced with their compressor wheel upgrade?

That's beautiful. Mechanically complex but beautiful. I'd like to have four little ones just to enjoy looking at them on my engine, practical or not.

I'll take a stab at the IHI if you don't mind boxing it up. Let me know what the shipping is to 33619.

Wait, quad Healeys to push one T-88. That's more like it.

No idea back when I was buying turbo parts it was included with a 16G I bought from ebay. One of my brothers friends stole (or was given, by my brother) the 16g and left the IHI. Thats when I decided to just buy a kit and get itput on my car, as everything I own ends up missing, and I usually see one of my brothers friends with it a couple months down the road.
