Question manifold/ 3"exhaust

Ok, i finnally found out what kind of turbo i have... The turbo is a Garrett model and it is a hybrid T3/T4 combination. Small exhaust side (for a quick spool) and a biggercompressor side (for additional boost capabilities). The turbo kit itselfis from Flying Miata, but was designed by Corky Bell. i have a manifold that mates to it, but the turbo keeps falling off... does anyone know of a good setup to mate to my turbo?

What do you mean keeps falling off? Did you glue it to the manifold?

that turbo was very expensive... plus im not ready to part with it unless i can find a better setup... find me a better setup that will put me over 300hp with less then 20psi of boost, then we will talk, not that low tho

Sounds like you have a great setup, you just need to give better details, better description, and pics and whatever else you can to better convery your problem. But if you want to get rid if it, let me know.

Ebay T3/T4

All BOV's are external unless you consider a recirc'd BOV internal. Did you mean external wastegate?

dude, 3" is the right amount of flow for an exhaust, 3.5" exhaust is too much airflow.. which turns into not enough backpressure=loss of hp... i want to gain hp, not lose it
