wasn't mark running a standard t3/t4 chinacharger?

i might try and find a cheap t3 and throw it on and see how i like it.

No, it was some fairly common T3.

The last turbo he had was a t3/t4 (300whp) but that was with a big "money" head and lots of revs. A big t3 is the way to go IMO... and you're half way there. I've seen the cold side ford 60 trim pieces come up on ebay several times.

my turbine has had a 50 trim t3, t04b-s, random ebay 50 trim, and a t3 super 60 wheel on it at one point in time....

a few weeks ago i just had to replace the turbine shaft...think I got it rebalanced?
