Just wanting to increase my knowledge on FI, does anyone know if the is a definative list of Turbo's that would fit a 5? I am thinking ahead to another project
Think that is how it works, aslong as the turbo isn't stoopid huge size wise, and you have the fabrication skills, anything will "fit" I know Green drifter has done a scooby turbo onto his and as Jamie said,the T25 and T28 are popular, with most of the bits available for a bolt on job without the fabbing of manifolds etc.Most turbos would fit given the right manifold and downpipe. The most popular are the T25/T28 footprint turbos as this is what BEGi/FM use...
Cheers Dave, I am just looking for options for future projects, I get bored very quickly and enjoy a challenge!!Turbo size is one portion, availability of manifolds is another. A buddy of mine is running a stock wrx turbo on a custom etd manifold... spools well. Most other turbo's are either T25/28, or the GT2650 I believe.... also I've seen t3/t4 combo's that work.If you are looking for lots of specific info... check miataturbo. They have more info on what works, who's spooling well, and compressor maps all over the place. <G>Dave,
