I personally would've already pulled the old shit off and figured it out for myself. :shrug:

I'm stupid impatient though.

is it too big bro? what are your thoughts, see how i clocked it? wondering if the oil spots have to be a certain way. Im such a newb lol. i dont think i can put this on the car as is with out building a motor first. 5 psi from a large turbo isnt the same as 5psi from a small one

First you have your numbers mixed. Thought many sites have it incorrect, Im pretty sure inducer is the air inlet and exducer is where the air exits. So your inducer on the cold side is going to be smaller than the exducer. The Inducer on the hot side should be larger than the exducer.

You got your numbers mixed up. Well your conversion numbers anyway, and 2.56" converts to 63mm, not 75. With that being said Trim and a/R arent enough info when comparing 2 complete different turbos. I can show you larger turbos with smaller A/Rs and wheel trims.

All in all because your inducer on the hot side is 63 mm, comparing to other turbos. I would assume that your probably going to get somewhat laggy spool. 16g on Evos have a similar turbine size, which is about 68mm. But their also running on a great flowing head, which is then being compressed by a 2.0 block, and hitting boost threshold a little before 3k, IIRC. I cant remember how well 16gs work on 1.8s, so as far as 1.6, i think your getting close to your limit for a turbo with good midrange response. But i didnt factor in housing size which is a little harder to tell, even if you did have two A/Rs of two different turbos. A/Rs are just ratios, I actually prefer real measurements like cm^2 (BTW there is no "Real" conversion for A/R to CM^2). With that being said depending on the size of the t3 housing will determine characteristics of boost threshold as well.

But "too big" is a relative term. I like midrange, others like peak numbers

i think it might be to big to fit anyways without notching the blocks web cast, I believe Ill be using it on the eclipse instead. a 2.4l stratus motor would spool it good i think, or i could order a seconf one for twins on the 5.0 :)

Then get LS rods and Vitara pistons. Reliable 300hp build right there and theoretically, you still retain a "stock" status.

Let me qualify my forthcoming question first: I'm not being a smartass or asking a question I know the answer to, or anything like that.. I'm just wondering; how is that considered stock?:confused
