Default Q about compressor wheel and housing (60mm 62trim)

ok so the short version is "I want to try a smaller compressor".

the long version is:

will a 60mm 62 trim wheel and housing bolt to my 2876R's CHRA?

I haven't looked much at how it fits up yet but I'm hoping for an easy swap. whee!

oh and I think that this will make it a GT2860R. If that helps.

I have nothing of value to add but why do you want to go smaller?

If paul is pulling 300 rwhp on a 2560 and has boost in the low 2000 rpms.... why the heck not?

I'm sure it's not an expensive test and may allow more smoky burnouts.

Teehee [email protected], didn't I always advocate the "smallest turbo for your realistic max hp goal", for a street car?

i don't see why it wouldn't work....so long as the housing is made for the wheel.

...the backplate will be machined for your 71mm wheel, but i don't see that posing an issue. you'll just have a 5.5mm dead space around the wheel.



you can see my backing plate...if you can't understand my jibber jabber.
