LOL.......This won't be a fast build , my healths been a bit poor so limited time in the shed , but it should be finished sometime this year :-)
Comp inducer ~106mm , exducer ~141 mm 56Trim , turb inducer 130mm exducer ~119mm 84 Trim , exducer is a little large for our use but I'll have to live with it , turb scroll A/R at 1.47 is a little "tight" and will limit maximum flow to ~95% of desirable level but still ~150 lbs/min , there was talk of there being an optional 1.7 A/R scroll housing , which would be ideal , but can't seem to find any info on its availability , might need to do more searching once I get the engine running .
hello john! yes i know that this turbo is in that prizerange normally but this is sold here in sweden which probably is in bad need of money right now....too bad i can not grab it because we are in the starters to buy a house..
5000SEK is really cheap, the problem starts when you have spent 400 hours of work on the state-of-the-art gas turbine based on the rotary parts from this turbo the comp wheel drops a blade from a bolt forgotten in the housing or whatnot.
Now you are more or less forced to pay retail price for a new comp wheel since you have spent too much time on the engine to put it on the scrap pile. Voila, bankrupt...

I've been doing a bit more research on Garrett turbos and they're now making extra large frame turbos in the GTA57-70 range , but can seem to find much info on them other than this ....... www.turbomaster.info/eng/turbos/gta57-70.php ...............which is kinda scant :-(
