Default where to t28

sr20 forums are a cheap place to get used t25's, where does one get cheap and plentiful t28's if such a thing exists?

Truth of the matter is, chinese turbochargers have come a long way in the past 5 years or so. Why spend 125 bucks on a used OEM garrett turbo in unknown condition when you can buy a brand new chinese t28 for $200? Too many people are using these successfully to ignore them.

Well, I just made an account there last week, and my new chinese t3/t04e is going in this weekend. I'll be sure to post up some dyno sheets after I go on the 10th .

Join some Canadian Nissan Skyline GTR forums and you will usually find a bunch of T28's.

No usual flange, but you'll need an adapter for the compressor side. Only the Nissan 300ZX turbo's had a strange 4 bolt exhaust flange.

I have a GTi-R t28 from my old DET powered SE-R for sale, $300 + shipping. It worked 100% and boosted great but I started to notice some puffs of smoke during deceleration.

There is a big difference between a GTR t28, a GTi-R t28 or an s14 t28. If I remember correctly from my Nissan days you want the GTi-R (sunny/pulsar) t28 or if you can't find one of those an s14 t28. You definitely don't wan't the skyline gtr t28, the turbine is much too small.

Isn't there a problem w/ Skyline T28 being ceramic coated or something? Can't remember...too lazy to find out.

I would check the SE-R forums as mentioned as well as the Sylvia conversion forums. The S14 T28 is the same as the GT2560R (most of them call it a T28). Also, the VW 1.8T guys use that turbo as well so they sell them sometimes.

I bought the two I recently sold from Craigslist, but I live in a Navy town and the Navy guys seem to have extra turbos more often than most.
