Are you planning on running an internal or external wastegate? This will change your selection choice right there. I’m trying to buy a ceramic ballbearing Turbonetics T3 50 but I need a 4 bolt hotside exit that doesn’t use the internal wastegate housing. I’m definitely going external wastegate to take advantage of my ram horn exhaust manifold with the T3 merge collector with wastegate port. This will give me a lot more control over the turbo. I have to call Jegs to see if they can order that specific one since Turbonetics will not return emails and will not answer the phone. If there was a T25 merge collector that was as nicely built as the cast stainless Treadstoneperformance one I would have bought that to give me more options.
Are you planning on running oil and water cooled? I definitely am and would recommend it.
What turbine size (inducer/ exducer) with what A/R do you plan on running? I wouldn’t buy an Ebay turbo that doesn’t specifically list these dimensions. Since there is no specific maps for these turbos your matching them with compressor maps that are similar vs. turbine size including A/R. I wouldn’t exceed much past a 60 mm turbine inducer, and wouldn’t recommend anything larger than a .80 A/R. I’m looking at the .63 A/R housing on the Turbonetics T3-50.
What compressor size are you going to run? The T3/T4 hybrids are all too large. I’m looking as an example at a GT3076 T3 flange turbo on Ebay (link below). The turbine size will work nicely but the compressor is too large. The compressor will change the flow characteristic enough where it will be too far to the right to match are relatively small engines.
What size compressor inlet? A 4″ inlet is going to be a nightmare to fit and will most likely be paired with a compressor that doesn’t match our engines. I wouldn’t exceed 60 mm compressor exducer.
USDM market never had them.
