it's called a hybrid t28...

it's pretty much a t25 footprint with a t3 compressor wheel. gotta machine the backing plate and compressor housing to fit.

...but you're going to find a hard time putting t3 parts on anything t25, as nothing bolts together...so the only thing you could do is pull the compressor wheel...

the other option would be modifing the manifold to accept a t3.

A t28 is a marriage between a T25 turbine housing and a T3 compressor housing. 25+3 = 28....You are basically wanting to create a T28 but using a T3 compressor side...well like Braineack said it wont fit. Modify your manifold to fit a T3 housing.

I had this thought the other day too, I was wondering what it took to make my t25 in a t28.
