Newbie Forum - Beginner/newbie/general DSM modification questions. First mods, how to run 10's when you haven't run 12's yet, any tech question that doesn't fit in another tech forum.
And a newer version has done 11.2 at 126mph
Pics and numbers are nice, but we still need wheel measurements. We don't know what part number is what with that company. . . We need more details than it is a tractor turbo. . .
What is the a/r of the housing???
With that many single vaned compressor blades on it, it will most likely not be worth the modification to get it on the car.
You found him....or should I say he found you.
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but that thing is in HORRIBLE shape. Just look how soaked the turbine wheel is from turbine seal leakage.
Your turbo's labeled a TRW, but it's built by RaJay:
For more info on the RaJay parts kit needed to rebuild this boat anchor, and every reason you shouldn't install this turbo on your car, check out: RaJay Kits
It sure would suck to do all the modifications to bolt this turbo up and have it smoke immediately, then tear it all back off and start over because you can't find a parts kit for a 30-year-old turbo. If you're seriously that cheap, try an eBay GT35R....you'll at least have a 1 in 200 chance of getting one that doesn't blow up in the first 20 miles, which are better odds than what you have with this thing.
Tell your friend with the Mustang there are three factors in racing
and you only get two of them.
a 13g inducer with approximately 60-1 exducer and single vaned
and it needs a rebuild and probably cant get parts
that will be a terrible turbo to work with 5.0L of displacement.
I remember the days when guys saw the hx35 and thought that turbo must push t60 airflow. It was just the compressor cover that was large.
I went on their site and it looks like they are using garretts these days
thanks for the help again
If that turbo has any purpose to be used after 1971 It would be best suited for a 5psi d15 honda or something. Although it will probably be laggy too. Tell youre friend good luck with it if he uses it
Spend a few $ and avoid disappointment with that thing. T-25 probably takes a s##t on that thing imho
