This turbo is very nice for the cheap DIY´er.

Dynojet, 12 psi falling to 11 psi.
I got my GT2554r for under 200 bucks...

still need to spend a 150 or so for the right wastegate and bracket...or custom make one.

Call me 210-379-5374. It was run for a short time. The turbine blade got nicked but the turbo is VERY servicable and its damn near brand new. It had less than 100 miles put on it. I'll guarantee it for 90 days provided it is properly fed with oil.

I'm kickin this back up to the top because I have a couple more questions on the T3. Do all of the internal gated super 60's have the extension that goes to the 3 bolt flange for the downpipe. Thats all I have seen and thats lame because it pushes your downpipe back toward the firewall unnecessarily and makes it pretty much impossible to use with a divorced gases downpipe. I hate to go external wastegate (expensive) but that really seems like the only option with a super 60. Am I missing something or that just a characteristic of these guys. Does it make sense what I am asking?

It makes sense what you're saying.
There's also this option:
http://www.atpturbo.com/Merchant2/me...egory_Code=WGT
As for having an internal gate that doesn't take an adapter I don't know. I'll always run external gates because it just eliminates nearly all of the possibility of having problems with boost spike and creep.

As for using a divorced gases DP with the 3bolt flange, that's pretty much impossible. There is only one outlet from those 3 bolt flanges, so what gases would you be separating as the adapter combines the gases immediately after the WG outlet.

How are you running external on your T25?

Thanks for the link. That costs almost as much as an external wastegate though.

As for the divorced gases pipe, thats why I was asking about different internal wastegate options, because those downpipes would not work obviously with the 3 bolt flange. I just wanted to see if ALL t3's used that setup or just the t3's I had come across so far. Thanks for the help. I guess if I want to go T3, it will be an external WG setup. Which, I would like, I just dont want to pay for. Decisions, Decisions.

My current setup is not ideal by far, but you can run an external gate on any T25 by welding the WG flapper shut and running the EX-WG off the manifold like any T3 would be. Mine happens to have the WG port open with a divorcer welded in the turbine housing then the WG is installed on the pipe coming off the downpipe. Check it out in my VBgarage, it's hard to explain but the car came that way. I'm building my own log mani for a T3 setup with the EX WG port on the mani, the way it should be.
