What Turbo To Use

Hey everyone im new to the site and just bought my first ford, i have a nice tidy ea s pak with the multi point 3.9 motor. im soon looking at puting a turbo on it but i dont have a lot of $$$ so i wanna know would a t3/t/4 be suitable to use on my motor, i will be only runing 5 psi and the most 8psi as i wanna keep my motor going for a long time till i save up and rebuild it with strong internals and any help would be good

thanks for your time

Re: What Turbo To Use

well i use a t03 in an AU (yes its a bit fully sick VL turbo style), totally stock motor. Running 5 pound i made 180rwkw at the most recent dyno day. i have had it boosted to about 8 pound and it was quick as, however i dont run it that high for fear of destroying something.
but certainly a t3/t4 would be alright for what you want i think?

Hey guys, im in a similar situation, I have an EBII fairmont 4litre, what would be the most suitable turbo for this vehicle, im guessing very similar to Low_au's 3.9.

Re: What Turbo To Use

Generally a cheap and effective turbo option for 3.9/4.0s is t3/t4 or to3/to4
