How good of a turbo is this for the GTi? Is it better than the TD04L?
I can get one locally that's been taken off of a rb26dett for a really good price.

Presume it is a bush bearing turbo? If you go much larger with turbo I think you should look for ball bearing or more advanced turbos as the lag will be too much. I have gt2860 and that is a bit laggy. I would go for a more modern design. God knows how hard a life a T28 off a gtr will have had.

Skyline GTRs carry two GT2860 turbochargers, with some models carrying one with a smaller trim turbine wheel turbo than the other.....

Problem with the GTR turbos is they run a Ceramic Turbine wheel and anything around or over 1 Bar of boost, this wheel self destructs.

Best of Luck

Thanks for the input guys. And I really thought the t28 was favored over the td04l.
I'll keep away from the t28.

If you want a T28 get the S15 Silvia unit which is a Garrett GT2560R if you want a nice responsive setup.... If you want more top end power the GTX28 series is the place to be!

I owned a R32 GTR, and i've lost my turbine wheel at the track :mrgreen:

this happens when you over rev the t28 from a gtr :lol:

I had the luck of 1 of the 2 blowing up, the other one survived and still running good along with a good second hand.

But i agree with the rest, it is an old design, slow spoolup, grab a more recent design turbo that fits your needs.
