Default Replacement turbo

I purchased a spare greddy manifold to put in reserve in case mine decides to crack.

But then it dawned on me that I have a spare manifold, a spare downpipe, a greddy cross over tube, and a family member who owns a miata. Where can I get a 15g--Is it a factory turbo for something? Is that the only turbo that will work with the greddy manifold and greddy downpipe?

Thanks

the other option is,

I pull my 15g off and replace it with a different turbo. I am planning on purchasing a BEGi downpipe anyway. What turbo should I look at to fit my greddy manifold?

What type of budget do you have? What are your HP goals?

If your are thinking of buying the BEGI downpipe, just buy a new BEGI manifold and downpipe to fit your new turbo. You already have the link.

+1, sell your current **** to offset the price.

how about NO.

I'll have what amounts to a complete greddy system minus the turbo. I was hoping that the 15g came on something, that I could pick one up cheap, and rebuild it. That would give me a second greddy kit for the cost of a turbo.

My budget for this project is $285 for a new downpipe + $80 for a used turbo + $50 for a rebuild kit.

My goal is to have a second kit to give to a family member, not to sell what I have, spend money, and still have 1 turbo kit.

are you trying to fight?!

by **** I meant stuff, wasn't trying to say what you had sucked btw.

i believe it has the same footprint as the sr20 t25s and t28s, but the exhaust side might be different. modify the DP slightly and it should work.

Just get a t25 and a flange to weld on the dp...

Replacements td04h are only on greddy sets (miata, honda civic/crx)
There are replacement turbo's but that's more than your budget...(td40 on ebay)http://cgi.ebay.nl/turbina-T28-T25-t...QQcmdZViewItem
