    Hi I received my turbo manifold and all my turbo gaskets today and I was looking at my turbo gasket and It didn't look like the right one,

    The turbo I have is a AiResearch T3 .42/.48 and It said the gasket was for t3 turbos but it doesnt look right for mine.. Please take a look at these pictures and let me know if this is the right gasket.. Thanks!

    Thos look like new shoes. Don't get them dirty.

    I don't think that flange is right. You need like ford style.

    Yes it is the correct flange, at least it looks like it, but you will have to take off your internal wastegate, that flange was meant to block it. You will have to take off part of the exhuast housing that is on the turbo and put that in its place. If you want to keep your exhuast housing and the wastegate there is another t3 flange with the 3 bolt setup that you can add right on top of that. You can find one on ebay real fast for cheap.

    The other 5 bolt style has a symmetrical 3 bolt pattern around the exhuast and them 2 slightly offset ones on the other side, since your's does Not look symmetrical (in the picture) around the exhaust, im betting thats the right one.

    Edit: Look here, This is what you currently have...
