    I've heard you can't use turbo's off of the new SRT-4's and Lancer EVO's, I'm not sure about a turbo off of a WRX though.

    a t25 or 14b off of a 4g63 would work.

    why can't you?

    as long as you have a manifold with the proper flange to bolt it on to, a turbo is a turbo.

    you can't use the turbo off of a srt4 because they are built into the exhaust mani.

    ok.. that's odd. i've never heard of that. you could always cut it and weld it on to a honda manifold though... and still, the turbo would work

    99 and newer vw tdi's (diesel) use turbo/manifold that is very close to that of a B series turbo is made by garrett

    the tdi turbo wastegates are controlled by the ecm the turbo it self can make 18psi

    thats why any turbo vw engine makes crazy power and torque after they are chipped to keep the wastgate closed longer

    I didn't know that... I just saw a step by step DIY with pictures on how to upgrade the turbocharger, and you can just unbolt the stock unit and throw a new one on there. It's not part of the exhaust manifold.

    Maybe its just me but from an engineering standpoint, having the turbine housing and exhaust mani be the same casting would be pretty dumb. What happens when you need to service the turbo or change a gasket.

    Also, some turbo diesles make almost 30psi of boost. I figure that would be great to use for a DIY project. Of course the compression of the engine is going to be much higher and the exhaust stream is probobly going to be alot different then a gasoline engine.

    Does a turbo off of a small diesle make a good gas turbo? Im going to boost my LS engine once its finished and installed in my car and my dad has an old turbo diesle thats about to fall apart so any input would be appreciated.

    most diesl motors on rigs use t4/60-1 turbos.
    im not sure what smaller deisel motors run... but the type of gas running the motor has little effect ion the turbo itself. it will function fine on a gas motor
