is a T25 a good turbo for a Z6 engine? A friend has 2 of these and said i could get one for little or nothing. they came off a JDM SR20. It has minimal shaft play, and could use to be cleaned up. all flanges come with it. Will finding a manifold be a problem? How much boost can i possibly run with this? Not sure exactly how he got them but, ones going one his 240,the other is mine if i want it.

you can use it
boost depends on set up
youll need an adapter plate for the mani

its a decent turbo...

you'd be better off with just about any t3 though.

I think the t25 flows the same as a t3 but is harder to make compatible...It can be done but a little extra work will be needed.

Like formby said, you'd need an adapter plate for the mani, where with the t3 you can find premade t3 flanged mani's easily and cheap.

Your going to also need a completely custom DP, which also isn't hard but it's extra work. Might as well while you do it make it 3". A couple 90* bends and a couple flanges and you're done...but again, the work is there.

Nope. It's going to take you the same amount of work to use a T25 as it would a T3... and they do NOT flow the same.

so it would be worth $50 then right? i have the means to fabricate a down-pipe.
and i dont think the flange will be a problem. he has the factory flanges for the intake and exhaust sides.

ehh, kinda. I should have said it's harder to find parts for. I can't read flow charts or I would compare but I thought they were pretty similar.
