Search for dustinB's build thread. You want to use the same Godspeed turbo that he was using.

Yeah it appears that godspeed no longer sells the turbo I used. It's a hard knock life. BUT EBAY STILL HAS SOME:
Godspeed GT28 T28 Turbo Charger 350hp FREE SHIP | eBay

You can see the difference in their old / new T28s
Old:


New:


I don't think I'd touch their new GT2871, but the older GT28 that I was running is a sweet turbo. The buddy who bought the car off of me recently sold it to someone who is actually into cars. He's drag racing and autocrossing it. Turbo still giving sweet power like yo momma gives up that booty.

$600 bucks for a t25 is a little overpiced.

Like someone else suggested a gt28r would be a nice addition. In addition a 15g turbo from a Volvo 850 is capable of flowing 300hp, and has a relatively small exhaust housing good for a 1.6 or 1.8

Just ordered the GodSpeed T28.... Hope I have as much success as you did dustinb! I've thought a lot about which turbo I wanted to go with, and this seemed like a great option for an even better price!

Ugh.... Just got a full refund from this E-Bay seller who sent me this message:


Message from merchant: Hi,
We just found out this product has a little problem, so we have returned all the items to the factory to fix. We issue the fully refund to you first.

Not very promising... I found 2 other sellers who have the same exact listing. I sent them both a message asking if they have the turbo in stock and ready to ship. I will wait to hear back before I try again.

Back-up plan...

ISIS T25/T28 Replacement Turbo - Nissan SR20DET Import Image Racing

Only ends up being another $7 after shipping compared to the Godspeed T28. I'd prefer the Godspeed but I have heard a lot of good things about that Isis turbo, especially from the 240sx guys. We'll see what happens by the end of the day!

If that turbo is a ball bearing unit, it will fail and you will wish you wouldn't have bought it.

Doing a little research on that, thanks!

I am still dead set on getting this Godspeed... I really am hoping one of these other vendors pulls through. I dont see how/why so many vendors would pay to put these listings on E-Bay for a turbo that they don't really have!

*Fingers Crossed*

I've got some friends in the 240 world who swear by that Isis turbo, but then again, they are 240 guys. I'd be nice to see someone on here give the Isis a shot and get us some real data. I very nearly bought one myself, but ended up with a legit Garrett 2560

Found a little more data on the Isis here: http://www.enjukuracing.com/products...n-SR20DET.html
Well, maybe not more data, but at least somewhere else you can ask questions

Even if I got a year out of it after it dies, I wouldn't cry about it haha. I'm going to be looking at it as a "starter" turbo. I'm not worried about longevity, just want to get my set-up all figured out and I could always swap to something better later on.

Comma placement is critical

"Starter turbo" is how I've always thought of the various churbos, but its pretty damn cool that there are people who have been rocking the chinese cheapness for years with no issues.

Haha Whoops!

So I really am thinking I will be the first to try an Isis on a Miata. The Godspeed is looking more and more suspicious. I looked into the 3 different sellers on E-Bay who carry this Godspeed turbo, and all three ship from the same town in California. I think all 3 seller accounts are actually the same company. I hear everyone saying to stay away from the Godspeed GT2871, so I don't think I want to go with that... What exactly is the reason to stay away from that one though?

Wait a minute... Isn't this the same turbo as dustinb's ?!?!

T28 Internal Wastegate Turbo : Godspeed Project - TC-015 by: Godspeed

It looks identical!

It dosen't say GT2871 unless i'm missing that... hmmm

*Edit* Specs are different when comparing to that E-Bay listing... I guess they used the old pictures on Godspeed's website but it looks like it is indeed a GT2871....damnit

Just ordered the Isis... Eff it. I'm not dealing with shady FleaBay Vendors.

Pays to be on forums!!! A quick PM to the guy who advertises on my WRX forum and I just saved about $75 haha... Happy I went with the ISIS for that price!
