I would contact a couple performance oriented machine shops and run that info by them and see what they recommend. You might want to run a little bigger gap than tsrm specs because you're going to be running a nearly twice the size turbo, three times the boost, and two and a half times the wheel horsepower as stock. I wouldn't know what size gap to run either, and I'll be in your position soon. Let us know what you come up with.
Thanks man, after a lot of research i figured itd be a great match.
I did order the 62/68 model but I received the 64.5/73.
I have friend who can machine the exhaust housing I got to accept the bigger wheel to make it fit. This turbo should spool slightly later than my hx35 and sooner than the hx52. Might be a perfect setup for me.
Or I could send it back, possibly miss out on the discount, and find out it's out of stock anyway. Took awhile to get this turbo in the mail, I might just machine the housing
personally i would send it back. that huge exhaust wheel is going make it laggier for sure. the 68mm wheel is already big for the 62mm compressor wheel so it won't choked up as easy as say a pt6262. but the 73mm wheel pretty sure come on the s366 which is totally over kill for that turbo.
this is what i have my eye for when i decide to replace my s363 or if it ever takes shit which will prolly never happen lol. i can literally leave my exhaust housing on unbolt the center section a slap this on. it only flows 5lbs/min more than my current turbo so not sure its worth doing unless i need to. but if i was in the market for a turbo this is what id get. should spool very close to the s362 and s363 but make a little more hp.
paired with the divided .83 housing it would be awesome for best spool and 700+whp.
I finally got a return label from thmotosports, took awhile but I got it.
Should have the other turbo by end of next week if all for well. After some research like you were saying, that 73mm turbine wheel is going to be too big for me.
Pistons, rods, oil pump and az Performance crossover tube at installed. Took the oil pan and cleaned out all the bearing shavings and threw a few coats of gloss black and clear coat. Will also be replacing all the oil pan hardware with stainless bolts
It sure has come a long way since day one. After the engine is in I'm going to focus on asthetics and save up to get the paint in prime condition.
I drive through Spokane from time to time, we ought to get together sometime whenever I do and go for a cruise. Not a lot of supra owners here in tri cities... Well 2 the I know of, rarely driven on the streets
looking good!!! i think you're going to love that turbo!
is there a reason you aren't running the cps? i'm considering going to an ecu master emu but still not positive since my setup seems to be working so well. id like a higher rev limit, no maf housing as a restriction on the intake, and the more precise control of the tune would be nice. getting it tuned is another hurtle i'm not sure i want to deal with. also the driveability is something the stock ecu does really well. how was your experience to the switch?
