Turbo questioN

Postby Wivm1014 » Sun Sep 02, 2012 8:37 pm

I got a 54 mm Garrett precision t3 turbo. What will I need to upgrade to handle it if it's even possible to mount and hook up?
Thanks for any info!

What are the specs on the turbo (compressor wheels, cold side A/R, hot side A/R, etc)?

Anything is possible, just depends on your level of capability.

Stage 3 turbine, 0.63 A/R housing. Does that info help any? I really don't know much about forced induction

That's not a terrible match up. You can look at compressor maps for the turbo to see how it would match up with the 3100/3400.

My preferred turbo of choice is a T04E 60 trim with .63 A/R housing. The 54 trim isn't too far behind it.

Right. Mine is just the turbo. Will I need to buy any piping or anything to hook it up?

You need piping, custom exhaust manifolds, custom exhaust or at least downpipe, intercooler,wastegate (unless yours is internal), blow off valve, a bunch of couplers, you need to tap you oil pan for oil return, get sandwich plate for oil filter, TUNE (either your stock ecu with DHP hardwre/software or a standalone system like megasquirt), then once its running you will want to build the transmission to hold the power, or swap to a 5-speed.

Not an easy job but worth it. Unfortunately getting a turbo is the easy part and is useless without a ton of other things.

Custom custom custom... Nothing "hooks" up to a Beretta... other than maybe a light bulb. These are a no aftermarket setup so you have to make everything work unfortunately. But as Geoff said, Anything is possible if your capable.
