    I have been searching around through Google, Ask, www.turbobygarrett.com , and even here, and I am finding no pics or stats of this turbo... :mad: All I have been pulling up are threads talking about the turbo, no pics or stats, and guys talking about how its a great turbo. I just got this from a friend, it is in perfect shape, no shaft play, nothing. However, it is missing the turbine housing, and the other miscellaneous parts that go with it, but I am willing to pay that small price for this to either be rebuilt or salvaged, eventhough there is no shaft play or anything, just to be safe I would pay to have it rebuilt or rebuild it myself. Either way, I am just looking for the specs of this turbo, if it can beat my ported EVO 3 BIG 16G setup or what? :confused: I mean it was free, and I am just trying to see my options... Any help would be appreciated...

    That's just the designation of the compressor housing. You would need to remove both housings and measure the wheels to know what turbo you have.

    ^ ^ ^

    Still meaningless.

    The compressor cover in question can have five possible compressor wheels beneath it...a 46-trim, a 50-trim, a 54-trim, a 57-trim, or a 60-trim; as well as countless turbine possibilities.

    The bottom line is THERE'S NO WAY TO IDENTIFY A GARRETT TURBO'S WHEEL SPEC BY THE DESIGNATION ON THE COMPRESSOR COVER, YOU MUST REMOVE THE COVER(s) AND MEASURE THE WHEEL(s).

    I hearby give thee life...

    So are the turbine housings on these turbo's interchangable? I've got a twin scroll 1.15 on there now, i'd like to goto a dsm flange or at least away from the twin scroll to a single/T4 flange...
    If they are, how would I search for one?

    Depends on what turbine wheel it uses.

    You can buy whatever housing once you determine the turbine wheel spec on the turbo you're looking to run.
