Default starlet ct9 turbo

Will a starlet ct9 turbo work on a 1.6? It's rated to 260 bhp as it's a hybrid stage one? Only ask as there's one on my shelf at home doing nothing

You know what? The starlet ct9 turbo will decimate all, after, you put about fifteen grand in it or more. If we have to, overnight parts from Japan.

Why don't you prove that you did a little bit of research first? Did you find a compressor map for it? Do you know the basic specs of the turbo? What does "hybrid stage one" mean?

Apparently Toyota never published their compressor maps, but I did a little searching and found this. Seems about right for a OEM turbo on a 1.3L

compressor:
exducer: 48mm
inducer: 34mm

turbine wheel:
exducer: 36mm
inducer: 46mm

22 minimum airflow (Kg/s)


130 maximum airflow (Kg/s)


1.53/20 pressure ratio/ temperature


60% efficiency at maximum

The turbo is one very small component of installing a turbo. It makes no sense to base an entire build around a turbo simply because you have it laying around. Especially if that turbo is shitty, and old, and won't mount to any "off the shelf" manifold in existence.

Well its 10% bigger then a standed starlet turbo. Also making a manifold isn't a problem as I'm a welder Soo it kinda makes sense to use it as it's brand new still in the box never run. And the manifold and down pipe arnt going to cost me a penny as ill use works suplys

What's your plan for the car? If you're wanting to beat a new Camaro in a drag, you're going to be disappointed when you find out that saving a hundred bucks or two with a turbo on your $$$$ setup means you have to go back and replace half your setup.

Yeah I forgot to mention that you should definitely not build a kit around this inferior turbo.

How many times have I read this exact sentence. Are you a machinist as well? you must be a tube fitter.

I think Ive only seen it done, like twice. I built a lot of my parts, and was too lazy to build a manifold and downpipe. cost vs. time
