that looks likt the same turbo I bought? It it the xs power(i know I'm taking a risk)? If you look at the compressor flow map and plug that data into turbo calculator, you will realize you will be fine. Mine is on a 2.3 and i figured that the turbo would be able to put out up to 17 psi @ 7,000 rpms. The big advantage is that it won't take long to spool up. Seeing as you have a 2.0(less exhaust flow) yours probably would only do about 15 - 16 psi max. But it should be fine.

The size of this turbo is bigger than a td04( 2nd generation eclipse factory turbo.)


You will be fine, and you will have fun witht he lack of turbo lag you will get.

The guy I bought it from said its an actual garret. Im not sure there isnt any marking or names on it. As long as it will work and get me my 10psi im happy.

I do have a DSM T25 but figure I would use this one since its in much better shape.

I think it will be perfect. Who said it's too small?

If it was a T2 series with that A/R then yes it would be to small but as a T3, its just fine!

What are your goals?

That'll happily do 200fwhp all day long with good responsiveness. You won't need to build the block, or do any radical fueling systems.

I've been running that exact turbo for 2 months with no problems on my SPI. Spool up time is pretty quick with my log manifold setup. A couple things about our turbos. The oil inlet is not tapped so you can either tap it yourself (shavings though
) or buy an adapter like the one I have below


The exhaust flange (downpipe) can be had from JGS Precision. Part # is TK087 $16.99

Another thing is the oil holes are facing horizontaly. I would like to loosen the bolts and adjust the turbo so they sit verticaly. Do I need to use a sealor on the bolts when putting them back in.

Also what one is the oil in and what one is the oil out. Im assuming the 1st pic is the oil in.

that turbo will be great! I had the same one, and put up 200wtq at 4K rpm at 8psi. You don't really need anything bigger for 200-220whp on the little zetec engine.

yes just loosen no need to take out or any sealant. Unloosen and tighten in a criss-cross pattern.
