 Post subject: Good turbo idea???
PostPosted: Wed Jan 09, 2002 6:00 pm 
Hey,<br>I'm new to the whole turbo thing, but I just got a good deal on a turbo. The turbo is from an 86 mitsubishi starion (conquest)with a wastegate on it. It spins freely and has no slop back and forth. I was thinking of putting this on my GTi motor once it runs, but do you guys think it will spool up quick enough due to the fact that it came from a bigger motor?<br> Brian <p></p><i></i>

what's the badging on the turbo?<br>Garrett, Mitsubishi? what size? I know these things varied from different years and I'm not really familiar what was on the older mitsu's.<br><br><br> <p><br><a href="http://www.teamswift.net"><img src="http://members.home.net/2832075173/pics/Swiftafter1c.jpg"></a></img><br>Kyle Jones <b>1989 Suzuki Swift GTi</b><br>Your friendly TeamSwift Op.</p><i></i>

The problem was hunted down and (thank heavens) it wasn't the ECU. It runs great now. Thanks anyways for the offer. <br> Brian <p></p><i></i>

Ok, the turbo is a Mitsubishi, here is all that is written on it.<br>MH1TCO5-12A, 489168-0180, and 18420. Maybe you can tell me what the heck all that means. <p></p><i></i>

Hmmm, I'm thinking the turbo is bound to be a bit too big, but I couldn't really tell you for sure as I'm not at all familiar with those. I might know some guys who are that I can ask and get back to you though.<br> <p><br><a href="http://www.teamswift.net"><img src="http://members.home.net/2832075173/pics/Swiftafter1c.jpg"></a></img><br>Kyle Jones <b>1989 Suzuki Swift GTi</b><br>Your friendly TeamSwift Op.</p><i></i>
