As some of u may know from my previous post I destroyed my turbo shaft trying to rebuild it.
That left me with two options. 1 park my buggy for who knows how long until I can afford a Turbo ( taxes kicked my a$$). 2 put it back in and just run with no turbo.
Than I recalled a storage unit I purchased 8 years ago ( yes I buy storage units for a living and have done so for 15 years). Long story short the guy built ford turbo motors and i had a plastic motor shipping box full of a complete new motor waiting to be put together with three Tb0344 turbos.
So now I have a turbo but I'm not sure what to expect from it on my car.
I'm sure it's not a great match but given my other two choices I feel it's the best one I have.
So I have 4 questions
1 what can I expect from it?
2 should I leave it internal waste gate or switch to external? I'm leaning toward external
3 if using external waste gate what should the pipe diameter and length be?
4 my exhaust is about 5' measured from the manifold no muffler. What size should my tail pipe be?

I do appreciate those of u who have given me you're time.
