hey, i have just bought a turbo off a RB20DET and i am going to be installing it into my 1990 ea falcon which has a 3.9 CFI engine, the main thing that i want to know is about mounting the piping to the carbie. i want to know if i should just take off the air filter assembley and get a custom intake made or if i can just take out the airfilter and run the assembley into the piping(will it handle the pressure?). also any other help would be great with installing it. i also wanted to know what the little hoses are that come off the turbo for your boost controller and how to hook them up.
these are the things that i have thought of so far:
getting turbo manifold
cutting exaust and rewelding the end to fit
cut off the cat converter heat protection and using fiberclass wrap
drilling holes in sump for oil
new air filter
1) that turbo is way to small for your 3.9
2) CFI sucks (i know mine was cfi)
3) you have bitten off a huge chunk buying a turbo and basing a turbo setup arround if.
4) check out this thread for requirements. Compiling list for Turbo
Ive been described as a vault of usless random knowledge.
never mind the a-hole cancled the sale at ebay, so im not getting that turbo anymore. what do you think of this one, i know that i will need a wastegate and to get it rebuilt but thats not to bad. will it be alright or is it still to small.
Item is as per the picture, a 350hp+ Mitsubishi turbo charger. It is to suit a 2.5-3ltr engine. It does require reconditioning as the bearings are a little sloppy now. The internal wastegate has also be closed up so it will require an external gate to be fitted. Exhaust flange is a T3 pattern so will bolt direct to most 6cylinder Nissans or just make a custom manifold to suit your application.

ok i think i'll have a look at sum wreckers around brissie, ive also been told that it would be cheaper to twin turbo the car rather than a single. is this really a better idea? i ve come up with a price and i reckon that i can spend about up to $500 just on the turbos, so are there any other ideas for the turbo/s? thx for any help.
Unless you are real good a fabing metalwork etc spend the $$$ and buy a single. As in T04.. AR exhaust under 1.00..Read up on turbo sizing. A VG30 is around the size of a T3 be o/k on youre engine as with std throttle body injection possibly won't take too much extra CFM or it will run heaps lean...You'll need an inline efi fuel pump..Another injector/s.. The vac line to the wastegate[dashpot] goes to vacuum/ pressure on inlet anywhere...
Don't be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the Ark...Professionals built the Titanic!

yeh, smartass! LOL. i would sell it and buy another fuel injected EA but wats the point, cause if i sell this EA im buyin a rotor, they piss on everything out there.
P.S. no offence to u ford lovers out there, but u have to admit that it is true.
and also danege, i dont mean this in a bad way but wat the f#$k were u thinking buying sony explod, pioneer and US audio? like really man u should do some research or something before u buy, because that shit is really, really lame dude.
