hey guys i'm newt. I am doing a homebrew turbo install on my 92 classic.

I'm going to roll my own exhaust manifold, probably a simple log type.

Any one have any clear pics of the factory Det manifold or gti pulsar manifold so i can get an idea about what goes where?

I was thinking of using a garrett T3 from an 86 ford turbo coupe, but i don't know if the exhaust elbow points the right way.

The Elbow will not point the right way for any sort of Sr20 Manifold. Flange would have to face the radiator and there would be no room. You can buy a T3 downpipe flange from Road race engineering for 20$ or so. Only bad thing is you would have to fabricate something for the Wastgate or go external. The ford T3 turbos use a Wastgate that is intergrated into the elbow. Hope that Helps..

hey guys,
thanks for the info. i had a feeling the ford t3 wouldn't work. does that mean that most add on turbos use an external wastegate?

can anyone suggest a common boneyard turbo with similar specs to a t3 with .48 a/r or so, i looking for 10 -12 lbs boost with little lag.

ihi or mitsubishi ? maybe off an early talon.
I think a t25 might be to small.

thanks, and thanks for the pic 2.

this forum is great.
