Default Td04

i work at a salvage yard and recently a 3000GT VR4 came in as a police impound vehicle. so the simple question as you may have already guessed from the title TD04 is: will a TD04 turbo taken directly from a twin turbocharged Mitsubishi 3000GT VR4 work in my 94 9000 CSE? i already have replaced an old broken turbo with one from an automatic 9000 Aero of the same year but thats not a TD04. in fact, the turbo from the auto Aero feels slower than the standard one in a Manual CSE.

If you have a bad TD-04 in your 9k you can marry it with the one you pulled to make it work. Provided the one you pulled has a good cartridge. Otherwise I suspect the inlet and exhaust castings from the non-9k car won't match.

Yes -"the turbo from the auto Aero feels slower than the standard one in a Manual CSE."
The T25 cse turbo spools up much faster than the td04 so it gives that boost quick feel i kinda miss that but, the tdo4 on the other hand makes the car feel like a powerful V6 engine with strong pull well into the higher speeds.
i wonder which car would be faster 0-60/100 mph a cse or aero?

Well being as it is that the auto Aero has a T25 as well and not the TD04...lol. Sorry mate, but the difference you're feeling is that manual CSE's make more torque than auto CSE's or Aeros-take a look around, my auto is limited to 300nm, whereas on the manuals you get 320nm odd. Also, manuals are quicker full stop, because the auto box saps a chunk of the power (look at the differing 0-60 times on Parkers). It's not the turbos-they're exactly the same-it's just that manuals are quicker.

I've had one of these motors out and torn apart and let me tell you that I don't think the turbos could be smaller.
They use a TD04 9G turbo which is tiny, I rebuilt one and when I took it to be balanced they said that they don't even balance them because they are so small. It would definately be a negative gain on your part to use them. Personally I was thinking of taking one of them and turboing a lawnmower for when you mow the wet grass.

i had a T25 before and now i have another T25 taken from an auto car, but put into the EXACT SAME CAR which is a manual tranny. so the transmissions haven't ever changed but i think it feels slower. its common knowledge, no, common sense that an automatic can't do things that the manual does. but thanks for refreshing my memory young saaber.
