EVO III 16G Turbo

Ok, So I just bought a Evo 3 16G turbo from a friend. I have several questions about where to go from here.

1. It has a minimal bit of back and forth shaft play but no side to side shaft play. Should I take it apart and port and polish every thing and fix the shaft play?

2. What company makes the best adapter kit for the 2gb GSX?

3. Should I leave it as an external type waste gate (have to get the parts for it) Or should I see if I can find a original internal waste gate actuator to use the internal function?

Thanks

i would say go ahead and keep the external setup for the wastegate if you got the funds, because the e316g likes to boost creep.

In and out play is a no no. Depending on how much in and out there is, you may already need a compressor wheel. Either rebuild it, or get it rebuilt. . .

Guess I'll start looking for the parts, any suggestions? (Don't have a lot of funds, but I can save for things, and I believe in doing it right the first time.)

Also, I am starting to disassemble it today, also buying a rebuild kit, going to port and polish it to. Will post pictures (warning, it may take some time due to my work schedule. :ohdamn:)

I found that on classifieds you can find a 38mm tial ewg for like 75-150ish and then the external wastegate flanged o2 housing can be had for like 150 if you find a good deal.

If you've got that thing disassembled, would you mind getting a measurement for me? I'd like to know the diameter of the turbine or chra flange that joins the two together. I'm pretty sure it's 3" but don't have one in front of me to verify.

Measurement similar to this:

id so some fuel mods/ wideband, dsmlink, before jus throwing this turbo on your car,

Fuel will upgrade to a 450 Walbro, 750 injectors, and a new regulator or some variety.

will be installing glow shift: boost, EGT, and oil pressure gauges. Also installing an Auto Meter A/F ratio gauge.

The 450 pump is a little over kill.
