    I want to boost a b18b1. I only want about 6-10psi. I also want it to spool up at like 2000rpms or less. I was told that a t3 would be a good turbo. I found some on www.cheapturbos.com but there is many t-3 to choose from. Here is a one of them

    Garrett T3/T04E 57 TRIM W/.48 A/R TURBINE

    COMPRESSOR SPECS:

    .60 A/R HOUSING

    57 TRIM WHEEL

    TURBINE SPECS:

    .48 A/R HOUSING

    STAGE 3 WHEEL

    standard with 270 degree thrust bearing

    call for pricing for internal wastegated option.

    I was wondering what these things mean
    • T3/04E
    • .60 A/R HOUSING
    • 57 TRIM WHEEL
    • .48 A/R HOUSING
    • STAGE 3 WHEEL
    • standard with 270 degree thrust bearing


    Thanks for The help I really appreciate it.

    PS-here is the website that it came from Turbo

    T3/04E - thats the basic size. it is NOT a t3, it is a hybrid t3/t04e, also known as a t3/t4
    .60 A/R HOUSING - there is an article on a/r in the turbo section of this site
    57 TRIM WHEEL - see above
    .48 A/R HOUSING - see above
    STAGE 3 WHEEL - compressor wheel, 3 is mild-average
    standard with 270 degree thrust bearing - uhhhh never heard of it- just a bearing though.... allows for smoother rotation probably

    its like a hybrid engine; combining two into one, like the lsvtec. what they do is take the compressor off a T3 and use the exaust housing of a T4 (is that right or is it backwards?). well is something like that, ive heard its supposed to help reduce "lag".

    I read the a/r article but it didn't say anything about what 57 trim is? Does anybody know what it is?

    other way around. t3 exhaust, t4 compressor
    quciker spool than a straight t4
    power potential greater than a straght t3

    basically, the smaller the number, the better spool time you will get, but also the less total output you will get from it
