just some turbo questions

ok so by means of trading i came into this turbo (see pics below) its a garrett A/R .60 M24 57 trim cold side and an A/R .48 hot side with a t3 flange. its externally gated only. i know the stock manifold on my car is a t25 flange and its all cast, which is un-weldable. just wondering if the t25 flange on the manifold is hone-able to fit a t3 flange and if anyone has any ideas on how to fit an external gate to this manifold, or any other non-cast manifolds i could get for less than say $300 cuz i know the JSP is nice but its also more than i paid for all the parts in my car combined. (i know, lol)


^its the big one

The stock manifold can be ported to match a T3 inlet, but it will not be a smooth transition. I ported my manifold to match up with the Aero TD04 inlet which is oval. The T3 inlet is a square with rounded corners and is larger than the 6cm^2 Aero inlet. There is plenty of material to remove from the mounting flange of the exhaust manifold, but the tubing wall is not very thick. Basically you only have a inch to transition from the stock circle to a T3 size.

cast is weldable, just not easily. You have to pre and post heat.

post heating is pretty much just a slow cool.
Cast does not like the extreme heat changes, and cracking will most likey occure if pre and post heating aren't done

how about looking into getting a T3 9000 manifold? I'm having trouble locating them right now but there are spacers that allow you to add on an external wastegate between the manifold and the turbo. It would require some re-welding of the downpipe but it sounds like you are not against trying things out so you could probably get it to work.
