Measurements, we need measurements. Start pulling it apart and use a vernier caliper to give some wheel measurements, inducer and exducer on both compressor and turbine wheels. I am sure someone will chime in on what it is.

Will try my best to show the exhaust side but the guy i bought it from welded a flange to it so the view is somewhat obstructed...



He also said that it was an HKS unit... How much HP should i expect from this turbo on my FD... How much difference would i feel considering i am upgrading from stock twins at 10 psi....



Also the guy did not give me any measurements can i measure myself.. how do i do that??



thanks

Dunno, if those specs are for your turbo. Pull the bolts that hold both the compressor housing and the ones that hold the turbine housing; use a ruler and measure across the top of the wheel as precise as possible from tip to tip on both the widest part (exducer) of the wheel and the smallest part of the wheel (inducer) and post the measurements (crude method). A vernier caliper would be even better to measure it with. Someone here will certainly be able to help. There is a thread about a similar turbo info request and he got a ball park idea as to the turbo he has.

Dont be afraid to pull stuff apart, thats the only way to understand how things operate. Just dont damage the wheels while pulling it apart.

Pictures say alot more than words. I took the liberty of taking some pics. showing what is required. Now don't pull your wheel off like this , I had this one sitting in the garage.



Compressor Inducer measurement = 58.22

Compressor exducer measurement = 84.00mm



From the measurements I can tell you this is a T58 wheel.
