Is the Turbo on a 900T16 the same as a 9000 2.3T?

Thanks - Simon.

Partial answer: a 9000 2.3T has a Garrett T25 (unless it's a manual Aero).
Now all you need is someone who knows what is on the 900T16 (at least some of them had a Garrett T3, I think and others had a Mitsu TE05?)

Yes, 900s had a T3 until 1989/90 and then the Mitsu TE05 took over.

I thought that 9000 turbos had different mountings to 900s turbos and are not swappable. Not certain though...
