Default Noob needs turbo help!

I have a budget turbo build going on right now. I just bought the mspnp and taco taco cast manifold(t3/t4). I can't seem to find reviews on China turbo brands. Can someone suggest something for around 300$. Jofis racing is doing all the work on this but they said they don't know what turbo I should buy.

There are currently no good t3 china chargers available. No ETA when a decent one will be back in stock in the US. You need to search a ton more.

Td04 is something I was considering. Would it work with the t3/t4 manifold?

Problem solved. Td04 is the subi turbo? Also, is it similar to the t3 50ar? I'm looking to max stock injectors. Will it scale as the build progresses?

td04 went on many vehicles.
Read here:
Mega Miata

15G is good for about 250-260 whp
My friend is now building around one with a begi manifold and me221 on a 2005. Should be interesting.

This guy is making 250 whp on a 1.6

I saw that video. It's the whole reason I decided to funnel some cash towards the miata. Last question, should I do a ebay deal or some subie fourms to get the best deal?

Stay away from ebay.
Craigslist or Volvo forums.

99% of td04s out there for sale wont work with you manifold.

You need a volvo/saab turbo.

If you hunt the JY you can get a volvo garret tbo363 out of a 740 gl. After that you can either machine down the exhaust housing or you can get the volvo to t3 adapter plate.

So far that has been what I have been doing for my budgeting.

I'm going to hunt for the td04-15g. This stuff is damn complicated glad I asked before I dropped a bunch of $$$ on something. Is there a difference with the td04h-15t?

Taco taco comes in t25. Why not buy a t25 manifold and then you have a million small $200 China turbos to choose from.

I realized my mistake the moment it said shipped! Now all I do is search and read about turbos and I'm not getting very far. Seems like I need to go big or go home at this point. Might just sell the manifold here get a new one and than get one of those s13 turbos. So many td04 turbos online for me to make a decision.

Return it. It's what I did. Bought t3. Then wanted t25. So I returned t3 and bought t25.
