    T04B Garrett of some type- they made these with compressor inducers down as small as 44mm with a 70mm exducer; most were mated to a 74/64.5mm turbine which is roughly the size of a HX40. So figure an 8-blade compressor that's smaller than a 16G which hates high boost mated to a turbo wheel the size of a HX40 is a terrible equation for making power.

    Your turbo was rebuilt by @JusMX141 - he would probably know what he put in it.

    You can see his initials on the turbine blades, so it is a good unit and appears to be just what you thought it was, an old but fresh FP Red. About the same as Holset flow wise.
    When Justin gets back on, he will chime in for the low down.

    Thanks for the quick replies guys. Yes I sent the turbo to Justin for a rebuilt. I wasn’t sure it was the 35r though

    Ebay special. If your turbo says turbocharger on it, it's probably a fake.

    It could last 5k miles or blow up your first start. At least ull have an allright turbine housing when it does go boom.

    I recently picked up a TD05 20G turbo, just wondering if anyone might know where it's from based on the only stamping on it outside of the normal mits casting numbers, (TR.JG 20G).
    It also seems to be clipped on the turbine, any guess on the degree of clip from the pictures.
    It has a new Mits 7cm turbine housing & the compressor cover looks new, actually the whole thing looks new but no history about where it came from.

    Justin will know best but I believe that's a Buschur 20g, if it is the clip is 20*.

    Hey guys picked this turbo up the other day, and I'm just curious if you can identify it. Who ever powder coated it coated over the part number. All I really have to go off of is that Mitsubishi is stamped I to the housing , and it has a turbonetics elbow welded on it. It also came with a old school turbonetics external wastegate so I was thinking maybe it's some kind of hybrid turbo they did back in the day maybe? The turbo is much larger then the t25 on the car currently. 15871561659183792255738639309845.jpg 15871562517145913985802224958435.jpg

    Sure looks like a 20g to me that has been played with. The compressor is quite chewed up as well.

    See 20g or t28 was my first thought but then I started reading that turbonetics did a few bolt on turbos for dsms back in the day but I can't find any pictures of them . And I can't seem to find any compressor cover that looks like this on a 20g or any mitsu turbo for that matter.

    I vote for a 20g with an elbow welded to the cover.

    Measure the inside diameter of the compressor inlet. Just looking at the compressor housing suggests it's a 20G, but it's possible it's an 18G.
    20G has 52.5mm inducer, 68mm exducer
    18G has 50.3mm inducer, 68mm exducer

    Can anyone show me a picture of a 18g or 20g with the same compressor cover as mine with Mitsubishi stamped into it like that? Most 20gs I've seen look way different.

    It's a stock td06 17C compressor cover from a typhoon or syclone. The 17C has a 48.3mm inducer, it's cover is easily bored out to fit the 20G wheel.

    Here's a 17C:

    Damn I completely forgot about this and you hit the nail on the head that's the exact housing with a elbow welded onto it. Thanks a lot man! Now I just need to clean it up and figure out what exhaust housing is on it

    Originally built by Texas Rebuild, JG are the initials of the technician- I think it's just a clipped 05H wheel but that's a real oddball looking clip to me....like the whole face of the blade is trimmed and not on an angle. Definitely not how I do it, anyway. Pretty nice score though, it's a brand new MHI turbo through and through.

    Frank L1 or L2 20G depending what size the turbine is. Garrett T04E46 compressor (50.8/76mm).

    The reason the 17C cover is used is because it's a common downfiring cover that allows wheels with an inducer smaller than that of a 20G at 52.5mm to be utilized.
