Default should I start from scratch?

The flange on my manifold fits the Mitsubishi evo111 16g not the T25 Garrett that I thought. Would the Mitsu evo111 work for a 1.6 miata? I'm looking for decent spoolup and about 6-8psi. Is the Mitsubishi larger or smaller physically than the T25? If its unsuitable I'll start by modding the manifold. I live in a very small town and don't have a turbo dealer, If you can help so I don't order the wrong turbo, all advice will be most appreciated.
Thanks Brian

If it's flanged for an EVO3 turbo, basically any 14B or 16G should work as well, so you don't have to go for the bigger EVO turbo. I'd bet a small 16G would work decently on a 1.6, or you could find a used 14B for $50 and rebuild it and use that.

also if you really want a t25, on the 2gen eclipse and talons had a t25 with mitsu exhuast housing. Most people let them go for 50 bucks and 14B normally run around $100 just cause they are an upgrade for the 2gen.

As for size. Based on owning a 2.0L with both turbos
T25- great spool no top end
14B-alittle bigger then a t25, better top end with only losing an 100-200 rpm lose


I am planing to run a 14B turbo on my 1.6 here soon, but I still have my stock t-25 off the 2gen incase it is to big for my taste.

as I am trying to get my 10 post so i can PM someone.

there are three different 16G size normally...there is a 4th but it sucks

small 16G which normally uses the same compressor housing and exhaust housing as the 14B but with a bigger compressor blade.
big 16G with normally has the same compressor blade as the small 16G but has a bigger compressor hosuing and I believe as a differe exhaust
evo3 16G has same size compressor blade but the blade is made/clipped differently so it flows little better, but it has the biggest exhaust housing.

Not trying to hijack this thread but is there a website somewhere with pics of all of these turbos (showing the differences, etc)?
