it's not a garrett, and requires an external wastegate, but she'll work.

You should have gone with that one. That t70 claims it uses the t3 flange.

yeah that 70 is huge. I liked the t3 i know it was not garrett but im cheap. I wanted to go external wastegate, so it all works out. Now i just have to find a good manifold with anexternal wastegate or buy one and cut it up.

If you still need a wastegate I have you covered there. Let me know if you need anything else for your build and I will be more than happy to help you out.

BEGi, ETD, JGStools, OBX, or SSautochrome for T3 footprint.

and FM, I know we usually leave them out of the fold... but they are an option.

Personally I would go BEGi, you can get their newer design used or second hand new for around $350 (I paid $325 shipped).

Good luck with your chinacharger, I've heard too many bad things to not spend an extra 300-400 to get an authentic garrett.

i left them out for a reason, no T3 footprint, otherwise they would have been 2nd on the list.

A buddy of mine used that one on a V6 Mustang, and even with all that displacement it still doesn't hit full boost (12psi) till 4200 rpm.
