    Estorvito- it should tell you the A/R of the turbo on each side of the housing. one number on the compressor side and another number on the blower side (i think those are the 2 correct terms). it'll be something like .XX A/R (XX being the number).

    looks good btw :)

    I have no Idea..I guess they welded it on there..They did a horrible job and it looks like a dil*o to me.lol.....Im cutting it off and making it smaller, closer to the manifold...I dont really dig the manifold But I guess its better and smaller than that ssac I had before....
    Its good for the price i paid for it....I also have a Drag manifold i can use, but i dont like it for some reason.+ i dont want to change the flange..I dont know....Im weird...lol

    I'd just use the one you have since it's flanged for it..

    Post a pic of the Drag manifold if its T3 flanged. I'll buy/trade you. cause I want an external WG.

    Yea I will. But I like the quality of the drag better.

    If I were you I would probably sell the greddy turbo and manifold and get a nice T3/T4 and use the drag manifold.

    I wish It was that easy...I'll just keep the greddy stuff for now..I only paid $265.00 for the manifold and turbo.....Im looking to buy a Turbonetics t3/t4 ballbearing turbo from this local shop next year and get that Full Race manifold I always wanted, but like i said, for now I guess i'll just deal with it...It should be allright..I dont want my shi* to be the fastest around here, i just want to be able to beat other people here and there @ the track.... :p

    I'm hoping to run 13s with my setup and thats SLOW compared to a lot of cars at Englishtown.

    You should make some decent power though.
