    I have a t3 (not t3/t4) and was wondering what are the characteristics of this turbo and how well will it work with my set up. Here is some info abou the turbo itself... the turbo uses a M24 GARRETT A/R 50. The other housing is a .84 M3 15G H2 :D

    should spool pretty quick i'd say... probably in the upper 3000's and full boost by 4000 most likely... but again, it will be different on every car, exhaust size, and so forth

    T3s are pretty large turbos, they'll wait to spool giving you the feel of major turbo lag off the line, but once that thing spools up around 3-3500 rpm it'll push you back in your seat and put a BIG smile on your face...and you'll probably get a hardon too.

    Be careful though, boost is addicting.

    no, they really aren't. they are on the small side of the mid sized family.

    T15, T25, T3, T4/T4, T4, T51, T66, T67, T88, and the list goes on.

    yeah i thought it was smaller too, I wanted a good daily driver and occasional autocross and once in a blue moon drag!!! It came from an isuzu. I didn't even know they turbo charged anything...
