Help with turbo identification?

Post by Tatsu91 » Fri Jun 13, 2014 2:30 pm

Getting straight to the point.. I had plans to boost my old ka24de that was in my old 95' zenki.. Ended up blowing 2 stock motors and practically had to give the car away because of reliability issues and work. I purchased this turbo and manifold on ebay for like 400$ about 5 years ago.. This info I was given didn't seem to be accurate when I received the turbo. Anyways from what I can gather its a Rev-Hard cast iron turbo manifold which from some research seems to be a pretty good log mani. Anyways the turbo I know nothing about. There is nothing makred on the turbo, no brand, no sizes, nothing. If someone could point me in the right direction as to what kind of turbo it would be classified as? What kind of downpipe should I be looking for? Will there be BMC clearance issues with a top-mount like this? Its kind of reaching without any measurements to show you atm but is this turbo suitable for my 350whp goals?

Thanks kindly to anyone who can help out with some of these questions.. ON to the picutres.

Its an eBay log mani, not revhard. The turbo looks Chinese/eBay as well or it mightbe a turbonetics exhaust housing on there with an eeBay compressor? Not sure. I do see a turbonetics symbol though.

with the size of that log manifold, compressor housing, and wheel, you will be hard pressed to make 350 hp with it. You might as well weld the wastegate shut, lol you might be able to, but that turbo will be maxed out and be making serious heat. I would not try more than 300hp with that set up. The turbine housing is the perfect size for that power goal, but all other aspects are lacking.

as for clearance, you should not have issues. If the turbo were bigger, you might start running into problems there.

Downpipe: that is what looks like a 4 bolt outlet, Therefore you need to look for a 240sx 4 bolt downpipe

Thanks for the responses.. I was convinced that turbo would have took me to the 350 mark. Im also gonna be running stock internals for the time being so I guess its safe not to try and break 300 anyways.. as for the mani, what should i be looking for to break 300 safetly and capable of 350+? Im eventually gonna build the motor and would like to have the parts that will suit later on down the road.
