    Detemining turbo usage

    Well a long time ago I bought a turbo for my neon on an impulse buy. But it has none of the normal Garrett nomenclature, so, I have no idea what model it is. It was rebuilt and has some heat damage but I was dumb so whatever. The only thing it says is the A/R compressor side is .42 and turbine is .48. I assume this is for LOW end, considering garrett n their website considers a .60 for good low end torque. Its external waste-gated but actually very small. Any ideas?

    Well I did a little digging, and I guess its a Garrett straight T3. possibly a 60 trim. I heard its called" The Super 60". Anyone ever here of this? Its supposed to spool up really fast.

    Well I have found what the turbo is. It's a 50 trim Garrett T3 from a k-car. Here is a picture:




    I was orignally going to use this on a small engine, but could it be possible to use two of these on a Twin Turbo? They dont seem much bigger than a 9b, but have been told they can push 12-15 psi each. And I'm sure with thembeng as small as they are they would spool very fast.

    9b's will already push 12-15psi and spool really quickly, so if they arent much bigger than stock and wont flow more why swap to them?

    Isn't that a contradiction?

    And I don't know their exact specifications. So I don't know if they perform worse or better. I just have it laying around, and would be cool to put to on.
