    Turbo kit off a 5.9 magnum what turbo do i have ?????

    So long story short iam getting a turbo kit out of a 96 indy ram pace truck the kit was based off a vortec supercharger kit. Iam getting manifolds,msd boost ignition,turbonetics turbo, turbonetics external wastegate ect ect. My question is i cant find any info on the turbocharger itself i took it apart but i cant get the hot side apart but i did get the compressor side off the inducer is 58mm and exducer is 86mm is that enough info to get me a guestimate on what kind of HP this could produce?


    I have a 65 dart with a freshly rebuilt 273 4speed that iam thinking about puting this stuff on, useing a edlebrock rpm intake, i would like to upgrade the cam also, intercooler,and meth injection

    Yeah... the way the turbo mounts to the manifold kind of like an afterthought makes this look like it's a pretty inefficient setup. I would think at least the exhaust would 'primarily' want to be routed through turbo exhaust scroll directly from the manifold 'cleanly', rather than as an added on 'down pipe.'

    Yea, definately looks crude, however setups like these work great, alot of old motorhomes had setups like these added to them. My buddy made a setup like this for his 67 nova that has a 5.3 ls swap and pretty much the same turbo as this, and it is an 11.3 street car. that he drives everyday to work(any weather)

    58mm inducer.. 500hp. But that's just the compressor side. No telling if that exhaust setup is going to work at that power level without causing differences between exhaust ports that will cause tuning issues.

    But it will go fast if you dont push it to the breaking point.

    Dont push the red button.You hear me?

    Got a 1.7 VW-motor 79-82 2-dr L-body for sale? Or want to trade it for one of my cars? PM me.

    Since its a turbonetics could i upgrade the turbo to make around 650+, change of plans slightly iam going to put it in a 65 charger/dart that had a 340 with fenderwell headers so i think i will be makeing some headers

    Looks like you could put any T4-family compressor side on it, which basically means the sky is the limit there. I dont know what the turbine wheel or housing are but either way you could bolt any t4 onto that manifold and easily exceed the practical limits of the manifold setup.

    Dont push the red button.You hear me?

    It has a t4 flange already on it, If i go with headers i would be willing to sell the mani whats it worth though i thought it was casted that way until i got it off and could see the entire mani so whoever did it did a really good job.

    You can probably just get a t4 to t3 adapter section. Seems like there's a lot of flange-adapter things available nowadays.
