Default New member needing advise and help..

Hi all. as above im new to this site..

Followed a link from cr.net after thay could not help with my questions,

Been told all the FI experts are on this site...

Any way i have just brought a second hand greddy kit that is as follows,
TD05-16g turbo, S/S bannana type manifold, external wastgate,

This is to replace my current greddy turbo kit i.e log mani,td04 kit..

But i have been looking for any info on this type of kit?
But no one seems to have seen or heard much about it??

I would like to find out spec of turbo/photos of fitted kits/any general info realy..

Also want type of power and boost this can run..

The turbo is oil cooled only, which i would like to change to oil/water cooling.
So what turbo can i use, seems to run funny shaped flanges, or can i replace the centor section using my turbo snails??
As the turbo could do with a rebuild??

Is there any one running this same kit??

Thanks for any possible help.
Mark...

Hey Mark,

Can we see some pictures of what you have? It sounds like you have the JDM Greddy Kit with some mods.

As far as I know, even the JDM kit came with a TD04-H mitsu turbo so if this indeed has a TD05 then there really isn't ANYTHING left from the original "kit". But I guess pictures will tell us everything...also so infor one you and your vehicle will get you long way on this site.

Doesn't sound like the Greddy kit at all (tubular manifold, bigger turbo, external gate). Pics are necessary.

This is what you should have http://page.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/108602382

Its an Earlier made Greddy turbo 05 -16g , running base at 0.6 bar boost on external wastgate. With extra injectors and alot of piggy back ECu coming with the kit. Was never popular because of the ridiculus price in Japan.

The exhaust manifold are common to crack, and the intercooler pipe set up is very unefficent.

I have a fellow friend that has blown 3 engine with this turbo kit, mainly becoz of the piggyback failure.

Thanks mate..
Thats pretty much what i have..
I dont have all the intercooler pipe work and piggy back stuff..
But i will be running an emerald K3 stand alone ecu and a pwr water/air charger system,
so wont need to worry about that side of it..
I was told the car it was removed from was running 14psi boost, on what looks like a std shortnose engine, mite have a fatter headgasket?
Does that sound about right?

Supprisingly the manifold has not had any crack repair, but the wastgate has been moved.

Does any one know if the later td05-16g turbos centors will fit to the turbo snails?
As the one with the kit is oil feed only,so would like to run a water/oil cooled centor section of a later turbo!!??
