One of our tennants used to make parts for the gov. Turbos...face shields for jet fighters...bunch of cool stuff. They moved out and left me with a bunch of old turbo shells and various parts. Anybody need 3" turbo clamps?

The housing is cast in some kind of mixed material....It's pretty heavy.

what the eff? That turbo is going to be pressed up against the firewall AND the rear glass. Like...I can't even think of a way for him to make a scoop just to cover it, its gonna sit on the hinge side. I guess he could replace the hinges and latches with 4 hood pins.

I don't know how he expects to spool that damn thing. If he wanted to make mad power, it probably would have been smarter to look at the Hyde set up.

actually, it spools fully at 3400 rpm, we have a friend who has a celica with the mr2 motor in it, its retarded fast, somewhere around 450hp? and he can still turn the boost up

im gonna look for the video for u tonight

same turbo(hoslet) same motor, same build,(my cousin is friends with him and copied it bolt for bolt) only the motor sits in a dif car

yes, it the turbo stick clean out the hood.
