Gt28 or gt28bb?

I just blew the seals on my gt17, i think since i'm in the market shopping. Maybe i should think future wise so i don't have to travel as much.
Any who 1st question does the mounting plate for the manifold pertaining to the gt28 striaght bolt on to my b235e?
2nd q..... Mechanically what do i need.
-other words bigger oil feed lines or is the stock size sufficient?

I know there is goint to be some ecu programming involed for such the application which is ok I more worried about the mechanical stuff.
the sooner the better i can get some feed back the sooner i stop thinking to get a tdo4 instead. Honestly i want to tun the car into the gt28 potential so a early purchase whould not bother me.
i know there is alot of computing involed for the tdo4 and i have heard it's not as durable as people thought.
thanks in advance.

My TD04 has 136K on it and I flog it daily.......it's plenty durable.

As for the GT28. Your manifold has a T25 flange on it. So anything that bolts onto a T25 or an adapter to the T25 will work. Your biggest problem is going to probably be how to get air into the turbo, and how to get the exhaust out. Search for a member named 'Vigge'. He ran a GT2860RS on his viggen for a while.
