One of the very few times Google hasn’t found anything on the following. Trying to find some specs/info about this kit. Bought an unfinished ‘87 na-t project and it came with it. Thanks in advance! 3AFE184F-46C3-4323-AE1F-33D06E146F3D.jpeg 26534AC4-441E-42B7-A59A-4BAF39A4FE44.jpeg 5D02F18F-0376-4F26-B6EE-7C777E333507.jpeg 024E0533-88EF-4BB3-8335-870C629D7670.jpeg

Id have to look through the old Japanese HKS catalogs but I this is the HKS T04 upgrade. Not unlike the TO4E upgrade but that turbo bolted onto the factory manifold whereas this had a dedicated T4 manifold and external wastegate. As far as power is concerned these were upper 400's low 500s capable with proper tuning.

Update: I was able to remove the entire exhaust side from the motor, here are some pics. The plan is to refurbish/rebuild as much of this turbo kit as I possibly can. Anybody know where I can find this exhaust flange for the hotside? 971104AD-D188-4468-BE76-D2FF4A0E0807.jpeg E0C1B86E-108E-456C-B393-305F3F2C632B.jpeg F6AACDA6-BDEA-4048-AFDA-F4E8A9977BEC.jpeg 1C8850FB-B1F6-4D1D-BBFA-5B94CF2B0BE7.jpeg 3409A163-006F-4960-91BC-36D482932940.jpeg 8F88D999-78B1-4FCA-A7DE-E6485AA21B0A.jpeg

As stated, full turbo upgrade, not the sport turbo upgrade. Many companies reproduced items in a similar fashion. A company called Treadstone was making a T4 log like seen in the picture.

ok,

the exhaust flange, this was pre v-bands. It is a compression fitting.

The turbo, this was also pre-ball bearing so triple check the shaft play and service as needed. Man, this was during the golden age of HKS and the alphabet soup of electronics (VPC+GCC+FCD+EBC).

That manifold was the 5m verstion which also fit the 7m. The 7m vertion had the longer runners and better fitment with provisions to mount the factory heat shield.
