I'm starting to look at a few different turbo options now I've finally got the suspension side done (as best I can afford anyway...no LSD here!!) :cry:

I've still got some Garrett fitting kit left over from my 9k (5 bolt to 3" vband adapter, some bits from the Aerodyte gtbb kit, garrett braided lines etc) so can basically either go for an easy TD04-19t swap (also have a spare TD04-15g here with lines) or try one of the Garrett copy's out and see how it goes.

Still have the 0.64 gt3076r upstairs but thats for next year or if these go bang!


TD04-19t

Just wondering which are worth considering from that lot above to get similar performance to my old gt28rs. :confused:

And question for Bogan...are any of them a similar spec to the big t28 you have mate? ;ol;

China turbo's are hit or miss. Some last for ages and some last for days. Dr Noisewater has a china on his and at last reports it's still going strong. If your going to get one, try to get it from a local supplier so if it dies implode you can change it over without to much hassle.And make sure it has a good warranty
To honest, I'm not real sure of my turbo specs. ;oops: All I know is it flows within 5% of the GT2860rs and uses the same GT series hot and cold wheels.
Mine was built by the G-pop shop in the U.S.

Sorry I don't have any proper spec for you Griff, I'm only good at the "pull stuff off and bolt stuff on" part.:lol:

:lol: Cheers mate...and I'm useless at the "pull stuff off and bolt stuff on" part ;oops:

Yeah "Ken's" china one is going really well...pretty good for old ken really as he's known around these 'ere parts for demolishing most turbo's he touches :lol: (better look after this new one he got from me!!)...at least Dick Turpin wore a mask:lol:

Good idea about getting a UK based one...I don't think the 19t ones are in the UK though.

I'll take a look at the G-pop site again.

Cheers, Dave.

Dave, have a look at the toyosports website. I'm going down there with leejitsu (uks) the weekend to have a look at a few intercoolers for him. If there is one you want me to have a look at or even pick up let me know. I got mine from there for the grand sum of 130 quid. I'll have a quick look myself at the turbos see if there is any that may do the trick. They come with a 6 month warranty.

I had a quick look last night mate, around three or four stood out so need to look into them tonight in work. Really fancied the 19t but if it goes wrong...I'm stuffed as sending it back will be a right ball ache.
At least with this place I can go there if it went bang under warrantee.
I'll add the new links later mate...iPhones driving me nuts at the moment & close to getting launched :roll:
