    I don't have any AR/CFM Ratings on this, the ones i am looking at don't show any, and it is my understanding that all t25's are the same. I am interested in putting a T25 on my D16Z6, and I'm wondering if the internal wastegate on it will be good for my motor. I want a wastegate set at like 7psi, but i don't know what the 2g dsm wastegates are set for. Would it just be better buying an external wastegate? I would rather use the stock one if it is possible.

    you can't use an external wastegate on an internally gated turbo. Well, maybe physically you CAN do it, but it won't work right at all.

    IMO, internal gates suck. the only plus side to them is that they are emission legal in cali.

    for a d16z6, i would run a 14g

    B, perhaps you can explain why you think that they will not work right. Its been done many times, and it works fine from what ive seen.

    wastegate actuator must be removed
    flapper door must be welded shut
    Create a external wastegate flange on the manifold

    right- if you basically make the internal gated turbo a nongated, you are ok.

    but otherwise, it doens't work good
