    do a search for turbo glide or turboglide. many people have used them. I have one on my HJ60 and love it. lots of info out there.
    If you chose to go that route, pm me. I have some hints that'll make the install easier.
    cheers,

    I install one in a 3B buddy engine years ( at least 6 ) agoo the turbo was incredible .. but nothing special compared to AXT or Safari .. if you ask me ..

    I have an axt turbo on my 3b and it performs great - night and day difference compared to normally aspirated. I have heard good things about turboglides, but have also heard that axt is better. I have not compared the two myself. It also does appear from your pics that the axt is much larger. If $$ is a big issue, I'd go with the turboglide - I think they are a bit cheaper, but I'd research that if I was you.

    but size of a turbo is really not an indicator for quality-it has to be matched to the engine. the turbo glide is a garret 28 which is perfect for the 4 liter 2H engine. actually I think the axt is the same turbo, but I am not sure about that.
