A 3071 is easier to fit than the 3076 due to it having a smaller compressor housing.

We fitted a 3076 with a 4" intake on comp housing and had to remove the air con compressor.

I got the gt3076wg .86ar turbo to fit on the stock manifold with the spacer from Nick, just like the gt3071wg, you can order the gt3076wg with the same compressor housing as the gt3071wg, the 50ar with 2.75" inlet. That is what I did, here is a picture. Made some good power, but was laggy, spooled up almost 1000 rpm later than the gt3071, but did make 125whp more with enem cams.
