Default Need info about this Turbonetics T3 (.48 hotside) turbo please!

I've been told this is a Turbonetics with a T3 flange, external wastegate, .48 hotside and a compressor that is "no bigger than a .60" (more accurate size coming soon). Can anyone tell me anything about this turbo?

My friend is trying to sell it to me for $200 and he just had it sent out to be rebuilt. No shaft play and no smoke came from the turbo.

I'm trying to build my car for autox and maybe the occasional track day. Maybe. I want to run somewhere around 225-250hp with meth and I don't want too much boost lag or too crazy of a spike when the turbo hits full boost. Does anyone know if my goals are achievable with this turbo? Is it too small? Too big?

That picture is out of proportion...it's from a blackberry.

It's only 2.5"

(wow...crazy that I refreshed the page like right after you posted)

if the inducer is 63mm than that's a huge t4 wheel, probably 71 or 76 mm exducer.

so what you're trying to say is: there will be substantial lag, a pretty strong boost spike and more power than I'm looking to make?

I think I may have made a mistake. did you mean the inlet of the turbo? or the size of the actual wheel?

I'm pretty sure these were taaken right before he had it sent out. I've seen the turbo and it looks way better than this.

It depends on what you want to do. If you want to track your car, autocross or do anything other then street pulls and drag racing then thtas prolly not an ideal turbo, If you want high 200s-high 300hp range for a rediculous street/drag car then its prolly great. Looks like a Turbonetics 60-1.
Its going to lagg till 4k rpms then its gonna feel like a semi truck hit you from behind doing 60. That is if its a 60-1 journal bearing.
On second thought you have a vvt head and it seems like the honda crew with the ls motors (1.8l DOHC non vtec ) spool that turbo just fine, they have same rpm limit as us at about 7500 and they make about the same power stock for stock, 140ish crank. It might work fine, but it will prolly make your power goals on very very low boost.

Could be a super 60. My buddy had one on his civic and the 1.6 spooled fast and made great top end.
