the 2560 has a 60mm wheel. which technically would make it a t28. it shares more in common with the 2854 or 2860 than the 2554.

Si. well see how it works out.

I haven;t even gotten the turbo yet, so I am not in a huge hurry. for all i know it fits the manifold and dp.

Doest anyone have a good picture of the DP flange that standard GT25s use?

Since my downpipe is two piece maybe beig will work out a deal with me for just the top peice with that flange (assuming it fits the maniflold)

Or just buy a trashed T25

Resell your odd turbo on ebay and buy this:

You said yourself you wanted it. Do it. You deserve it. You're a great guy. You only live once, may as well have the big turbo.

it wouldn't be a turbo to rip apart.


you can always buy an old junker like this: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Nissa...spagenameZWDVW



turbine is something like 44mm, should be the same:

With Absurdflow components! I think everything he has was around $2k and with the exhaust an intercooler around 3.5k.

I honestly don't know much about the T2 turbos or if they have that 6 bolt center section-to-turbine housing flange.

Oh heres the specs off the turbo

Compressor
In: 1.83"
Ex: 2.638"


Turbine
In:2.083"
Ex:1.824"


Whatever Splitime had it definitely didn't fit (I wonder if it was a normal T2 turbine?) Thanks for letting me give that a try

2.638" is what 67mm? that's bigger than a 2860.

however the turbine seems to be the same size as a 2554.
