    TURBINE HOUSING A/R .84

    COMPRESSOR HOUSING A/R RATIO .70

    t70?

    uhhhh... lol how about no scott.

    unless you can get it cheap, and turn it for a profit on ebay, i'd suggest going much smaller.

    a b16 won't spool that until at least 5-6 grand built... and probably 6+ stock. its just way too big dude.

    even a t3/t4 in a .84 housing won't spool for shit.

    that big ass turbo i got is STILL only a .63 turbine housing with a .70 compressor

    200 bucks you can buy my T3/T4 built by Air Research, I dunno all the stats but the Exhaust A/R is .48. :) ...and it even has a factory waste gate already included!


    Seriously. buy it. 200 plus shipping its all yours. ;)

    There's a serial number stamped on it...is there anyway to tell what the hell it is exactly by figuring out those numbers? :blink:

    Honestly, the smallest i would go would be an 18G and the largest would be a T3/T4.

    .63 A/R will probably get you there
