9-5 lpt turbo question

Hi...
Im considering buying an 9-5 lpt...
And i have an upgraded turbo sitting on the floor...
Can anyone help me saying if an Mitsu TD04-19T that was destined to an 9000 can be fitted in the 9-5 lpt ??

Thanks in advance...

you will need to get the compressor housing clocked to line up with the t7 intake pipe

It's not that simple. A 9-5 cobra pipe is a V-band like connection. You'll have to get the 9000 compressor either milled to fit, get a 9-5 TD04 compressor milled to accept the 19T or use some other cobra pipe.

Some items from siliconeintakes.com

redo fro the MAF to the inlet of the turbo and you will need lines I am pretty sure the oil inle line has a m14x1.5 banjo instead of the gt17's m12x1.5 oil feed.

Throw a 3" downpipe at it and enjoy after you get JZW to write your tune!!!

So....
I HAD a dream..
lol
To buy an very affordable 9-5 and tune it...

And I did it.... well half of the story yet...
lol

Saw this in the web 250 miles away from me

Price tag: about 1000 dls and something
Went there and saw the car.... and bought it
After checking it out to see the damage....



The stripping apart job beggins


At this part i have to use an farm tractor to pull the reinforcement bar ( Damn hard car!! )



So i could get some room and acess to the radiators...

Some one had to go into the car and brake with the brake pedal cause the tractor was pulling it..
lolol
After pulling the radiators the picture was this....




Later i´ll post more pics....

The story continues....
After all was done ( strypping ), the bodymen ( i don´t know the translation to this job ) stretched the cat into his place.

The good thing about this story was a friend of owr club has his car tottaled... an ambulance hit him hard on the rear... So the hole front was good... to me...

The Bonus: It was an Aero model...

So for 400 dls i Bought the hole front and some other pieces to fix my car...

When it came back from the bodymen was like this:



And before i knew it i had the bumper installed just to get an glimpse...

A few more days to fix it all up and the car is like this...

Here still with the 16" wheels in front ( the others i had to put tyres in it...

In this pic i´ll show you my paint job with a can in the lower part of the rear bumper ( don´t forget this is an lpt disguised as an Aero lolol )


And here is my friend´s Wagon in nice company....


I still have to take care of some details... give it a good wash, some polish and good to make a few miles...
The car have to make a big revision so i´ll have to pull the oil pan to check for sludje(?) and instal the PCV kit i´ve ordered...

ALL done in 3 weeks
I think it looks cool...
Now i have a dillema:
Go in my 9000R ( all tuned up just the way i like it ) or go with the Fake lpt ( lolol ) cruising to work???

lolol

Tell me your thoughts...
