Default Unknown Rebuilt T25 Garrett - HELP!

Need help identifying this turbo and if it is worth my time and $. My goal is a DD-able 230-240whp (friends tell me to buy a S2k, too true )

Owner says its a recently "rebuilt (by Garrett)" turbo, T25. Sent me good pics too...anyone more keen on details than I?

You may need to get the 4-bolt engine flange resurfaced.

It's in excellent shape, and I'd be pretty confident in a recent rebuild.

It's not a T25, I will lay a large amount of money that it's a T28. Looks like a good turbo to go for with your HP goals.

The a/r is .80 Brainy - I believe it's a T28.

Interesting. What model is the .80 a/r T25 off of?

(Edit) Very weird, I'm supposed to have a SR20 T25 (T25G), but it only has a .62 or .64 (Whichever) compressor a/r. Hmmm...

(Edit2) Very, very weird. I'm not certain what turbo I do have now after a lot of searching... Damnit Brainy, oh well. I'm about to go chinacharger, so it's all good.

^So that means??? T25G (normally) has what turbine A/R?

1. Would this be good for my goals?
2. What Manifold/DP Combination would work best for me?
3. What did Blaen mean about getting the flange resurfaced?
4. $$$ What should I bargain with this guy? asking $400, but said if I'm serious we can negotiate.

1. Yes
2. Classifieds to Artech, it's more your budget then anything.
3. Look at the picture close, specifically at the 4-bolt engine-to-turbo flange in the second picture posted.
4. $400 for a T25G is -really- steep

1. Yes <GOOD!

2. Classifieds to Artech, it's more your budget then anything. <Sooooooo...any 1.8L Miata T25 flanged manifold? Custom downpipe I can have made by Miller-welding guys here with the Jet Dragster Team...Where can I find just the flange I need to mate to the outlet? Divorced is likely better than mixed right?

3. Look at the picture close, specifically at the 4-bolt engine-to-turbo flange in the second picture posted. <I see now, complicated process? I have access to very talented people with awesome equiptment.

4. $400 for a T25G is -really- steep <$200?

2) You'll be able to do something awesome with that. I would imagine on par with Artech stuff.

3) No, all you are trying to do is get a flat surface. Or you could just use a gasket, but most people on here don't use a gasket.

4) $200 for a rebuilt T25G would be a good price I'd say.

I paid ~$100 for my rebuilt T25G. Anything above $200 is too much.
