    Ok...based on this information you're telling me im getting the impression you have no idea what a turbo is because you would know; size matters. Christ.

    That is way small for a B16. Im running a T25 on my d series and hit full boost (8 psi) at 3300-3600. That will thing will make a little over 210-225 HP on a b16, maybe.

    I have personally seen both of those turbos, disassembled. That would be the worst turbo to run on your car.

    1) The Subaru flange on it: good luck finding a manifold for it, unless you are going to make it yourself

    2) Its way too small. Yes, you can run it...but why would you? Its horribly inefficient and will be extremely too small for the application.

    its an INTERNAL wastegate.
    right, depending upon the tuning and other parts as you have stated.
    this.
    its or it's.
    the.
    know.
    to.
    come on, its really not that hard. it makes your posts annoying as hell to read.

    youd be better of with a decent t3/t4 (garret or likewise, an A/R58 60 trim t3t4 would spool very quickly) but suit yourself. youre going to have a hell of a time getting that turbo to make 250 IMO. its just too small for what youre looking to do. and if you do push it there, it probably wont last long. that and you will have to worry about cylinder pressures because you will probably have to go upwards of 18-20psi to get that thing to make any power. on your 10.3:1 static compression ratio b16(already fairly high) that wont be a good combination.

    like people always say: get the right tool for the job. this isnt the right turbo for your power goal.
