Default WTB dirt cheap, EWG turbo of any size

This wont be for a miata, or even a car for that matter.... or even a piston engine. I just need any size, EWG turbo, and im not willing to pay much more than $70-80 shipped. Sell me something that is covered in spooge, with a terribly undesirable A/R and flanges or something, and needs a rebuild, as long as the blades havnt self destructed.


Will entertain IWG options as I can just weld it shut, but would prefer EWG.

If this is what I think it is I have done this before with a dewalt drill running some random oil pump in a #10 can. The journal bearing still died after about 20-30 min of running. Lit a 2x4 on fire at like 3 or 4 ft almost instantly and definitely required earmuffs. Leaf blower helps with starting.

I have a janky turbo that you can have to do this with (was my intent for it, but too busy). Lemme know if you want to pay shipping.

Ill take it.

leaf blower- check
99 Miata PS pump and small gear reduction motor, although 24V :( - check
ear muffs- check
pissed off neighbors- check
scatter shield- in the works

I had got a low mileage, really good condition VGT garret off a 03' F-sumthin for pretty cheap, only to realize it was a rare, sought after turbo (some rare compressor wheel with an odd blade count). So I sold that one and quadrupled my money. That would have been a fuking monster anyway, and would probably have emptied a propane tank in a few minutes.

Im debating using an injector with a simple pot controlled PWM circuit to throttle fuel, with a few fuel cut circuits for safety.

I need to find a cheap way to measure 200,000 rpm.

Nope. Not sure how one would utilize a turbo for a rocket engine. Maybe you could use it as a liquid fuel pump, but some of those run like 100 bar sooo.

Go look up "RC Don", He made one, made a ducted fan with a PTO, and them strapped it to a cart and went to the salt flats.

Boxed everything up (except the wastegate actuator) and have it ready to bring in to ship tomorrow. We'll see if I actually remember.
