T04 turbo

Hi guys
ive got an oppurtunity to buy a second hand turbo and manifold for my car, the turbo is a Air Research T04 with .60 AR i think, it needs a set of new bearings but other than that its ok... just wondering on your thoughts on this turbo and whether it is suitable for a low boost applications for my 4L I6, the turbo is off a 250 crossflow....any advice would be good,
Cheers

Re: T04 turbo

Seems to be the one to go with, would also be suitable for a bit more than low boost on the 4.0.
Just make sure it doesnt need more than a quick reco, i bought one in similar circumstances, needed new bearings, anyway took it to GCG turbochargers and they said its rooted, but we can fix it if you give us $1300. Needless to say i got another t04 and now have an expensive paper weight in my cupboard.
If you can get a manifold to suit the 4.0, well done, usually above $800 to get one made. If its a manifold for a 250 then no doubt you'll find a buyer quick smart.
Good luck with the buy but just be sure the turbo isnt screwed.

Re: T04 turbo

im planing to use the manifold... is it possible to cut the flanges off that suit the 250 crossflow head and weld the manifold pipes up to a new 4L OHC exaust flange?

Re: T04 turbo

Might not be the best idea, will probably make it weak. Especially if its one of the cast manifolds. You could sell the manifold alone for about 250-300. Better to just get one made
