Merry Christmas Everyone. So the past week and a bit here I have been wanting to turbo my truck really freaking bad after doing a bunch of reading and talking with people. I initially was going to splurge and buy a kit but I have a hard time spending +3k or very close to it just for a kit not including a full exhaust, not having it ceramic coated and not even including my gauges and potentially my intercooler. I then though heck I could buy a turbo for around $600 bucks and piece the other stuff for the turbo minus the gauges and other gadgets I could probably do it for under $600 again fairly easy. I am hoping to go with one of these adapters: Advanced (HB) Intercoolers - Turbo Adaptor Plates So I have been doing a ton or reading and I am wanting to start another good discussion on what turbo I should be using. I want to run a journal bearing turbo and probably go the 360 thrust washer (if its really needed). I also plan on adding water cooling if possible just to keep the unit a little bit cooler. Ceramic coating the manifold, plate, turbo and dump. Planning on setting max boost to 14psi when the intercooler is on this is the dump I am planning on running, T25 T28 5 BOLT TO 3 V BAND ADAPTOR CLAMP SET [ac-062] - $60.00 : GodSpeed Project, The Art of Performance I have read that the TD04-16G or the 16T might be a good option for this engine. I think it is roughly a .63 a/r on the cold side while .43 a/r on the hot side. This is roughly the same set up as running a Supra compressor and 1hd-t turbine (.48 a/r) from a 1hd-t ct26. I have also been reading that the gt2860r would also be a good choice running .63 a/r on both the hot and cold side. My overall goal is to have boost kick low range yet still be able to hold nice say to max 3000 rpm. Lshobie runs a Progressive 3231 compressor side and a .48 turbine while in the past he had a .68 turbine. Thoughts?
