Default Got my Turbo

Got my T25 today. The guy I bought it from included all of the Silvia plumbing with it. Looks like all I can use is the oil return, and the intake elbow. It also has a fairly new HKS waste gate actuator. After a little research I think it is a HKS 1430-RN004 which is 11.4-12.8 PSI. I guess I will try to flea bay it so I can get a 8-10lb actuator. Unless some one here wants to buy it. At lunch I am going by our local turbo shop to have it looked at.

Why would you want to get rid of that WGA? All you need is the BEGI adapter and you can clock that turbo however you want it.

Also, you can prolly bend those water lines to a useful spot. If not that cut them down and hose clamp your water lines to them.

Shaft play?

My T25 had oil residue caking the inside of the compressor housing. You may want to check that.
