    the comp. housing reads 3AN1.
    the turbo came off a 13b rx7...
    has anyone ever use these to make a custom turbo set--up???
    i have two turbine so was thinking of useing one for a custom set-up(b16a).
    would it fit the dsm turbo ex. manifold with a custom b16a turbo header?
    thanks in advance. :worthy:

    twin turbos would be a waste of money. try researching a little bit on http://www.homemadeturbo.com

    If you want big power, go single turbo. There is a reason most of the hardcore drag supras are running sigle turbos. If you are racing you usually don't need (or want) big power until upper RPMs anyway. If you want a car thats for a road course, you should just be staying all motor anyway.

    I wouldn't say that...


    Whatever gives you the nicest power/torque curve for the money is what you want if you're on a budget.

    he said he wanted to use one of these. he doesnt want a twin turbo setup, he wants to know if that turbo will work with the b16.
    you would need a manifold for a b series motor that is flanged for that turbo. i doubt a dsm manifold would work, but i'm not sure that your turbo would even be a good idea for that motor.

    using "big" and "t25" in the same sentence is an oxy-moron. lol

    lots of oem cars use small turbos-- sr20s, 4g63's and so on... but what you need to understand is that the honda motor is SOOO much more efficient.

    it has a much higher VE and a ton more compression. not to mention the rpm factor.

    a t3 super 60 is about as small as i'd go on a b16. only thing smaller i'd consider is the gt28rs. its a small turbo, but its super effiecient, and has a large a/r making it capable at the top of the honda rpm range as well.

    oxymoron is a term used to descibe opposites.

    apartment (they are close together)
    driveway (you park on it)
    parkway (you drive on it)

    and so on...
