I want to have my friend plumb in a turbo in my 2002. What is the hot ticket? I've searched the threads but can't really find much info on what people are using when putting them in?

Thanks!

A hard question to answer without knowing what kind of power you want to make. Do you want a fast spool with a bit of a power bump or a longer spool but blow the doors off when the boost hits? Any other mods to the motor?

i use an old plain garret T3 with a very small .36 a/r for extreme low end response and a .60 trim.

I have a .48 and .63 a/r too but like the .36 a lot. sourced initialy from a Merkur XR4TI 2.3 (like mustang SVO of the 80's)

All work extremely nice and rock solid since 1998.

==>Note that the turbo alone is only part of the whole equation.

Get some turbo maps, figure out how much power you want to make, calculate your pressure ratio and mass flow then plot things up and leave some margin from the surge line (15% is good).

I think it was posted last week....

....anything off a diesel that takes up an entire room should be adequate.
