I bought my buddies old DP to couple to my chinacharger (http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...m=110480768452) and the flanges don't nearly line up... at all.

I think he might have hooked up up with the wrong downpipe, or my chinacharger is ******* retarded.

Which one looks like a t25 outlet flange?

Oh, and sorry for the **** pictures... My camera fell out of my bag on vacation through security. I picked up the camera, but didn't realize the battery had popped out 'till I was there.

EDIT: Ok, appreantly the turbo is an emotorusa.com "TC-TB25".

not a t3 turbo, not a t3 outlet.








your outlet might be a DSM t25, not nissan.

was your turbo advertised as a drop in replacement for the R34 GTR?

Wasn't advertised as a drop in replacement for anything. Ebay ad is posted in the OP.

This is fucked up, NONE of those numbers match what I have.

GOD MOTHERFUCKING DAMMIT IT'S A ******* DSM TURBO! I'M GONNA BUST A NUT! ******* advertised as a regular t25 flange... ******* ebay sellers, I hope his shop burns down.

EDIT: God ******* dammit again, all I can find are DSM 4-bolt flanges for sale. Can someone help me out? I'm about to rage on my computer. Anyone got specs for the DSM 5-bolt outlet flanges so I can measure?

EDIT EDIT: Ok, really stupid question here, but are T25 and GT25 flanges different?

Anyone got a DSM cutout/spec sheet like Brain posted for the standard 5-bolt? Been searching but can't find anything.

Doesn't look like a DSM flange to me. My T25 DSM turbo used a 4 bolt downpipe flange.

By the way, could you take a picture of your downpipe on the turbo? Would like to see which bolts aren't lining up.

Here's a pic of the DSM t25 flange. Definitely 4 bolt, and not what you have.

I can't get a reasonable picture right now due to the camera situation in the OP. I'll try to describe it. When I say it doesn't line up, I mean if I have two studs in any configuration on the turbo, it won't line up. It's that far off.

To me it looks like the flange was put on upside down. You also might just need to make the holes larger on your downpipe. I had to do that with my OBX turbo.

Thanks for the advise and help guys... Just got a message back from the seller. Apperantly it's a non-standard flange, and the only way I can use this thing is to get one of their flanges welded onto my Begi DP. I've talked about getting my money back from them. I'm looking forward to their response.

Consider a chargeback?

I just made the same mistake. Sent the seller an email asking for a refund since it's a non-standard flange. Not holding my breath. :(

Does anybody make a downpipe or flange to match this thing???

Here's the flange on the turbo:

That's what I figured. I've got a T28 from an S14 with bad seals from a buddy. I'm going to see if I can swap the hot-side over.
