Default Turbine Housing swap?

So I'm an idiot and just bought this:

https://www.miataturbo.net/miata-parts-sale-trade-5/china-gt2870-turbo-%2A%2A%24160-shipped%2A%2A-61333/


And naturally after paying for it I realize the internal wastegate is welded shut and I need a working internal wastegate for my setup.

The turbo it's replacing is a Garrett GT2560 and was curious if I would be able to swap the turbine housing from the Garrett onto this guy so I can have a working wastegate.

Next time I'll just work on my reading comprehension before buying something!

Thanks!

Oops fingers were off on the keyboard.

I think that chinese turbine will have a larger diameter than the garret you are trying to replace. No good unless you have skills with a die grinder.

sounds like a good opportunity to get your current setup modded for ewg
