I was looking around and I can get a deal on some turbos, so I was wondering what specs do I need to look for when purchasing a turbo? I would eventually buy the rest of the stuff like piping and everything from CN most likely. But I was just wondering what size turbo will bolt on to the CN manifold. Also I think I remember someone saying that it was a .6 AR or somethin along those lines for the turbo.

If this is a repost and I just suck at searching then ignore. :confused:

And what does the AR on a turbo mean anyway?

I believe any turbo that uses a t3 style turbine houseing should blot right up. The only issues you might run into is firewall clearance with a turbo that has a large compressor but i`m not sure as i have never measured the clearance. A/R refers to the ratio of The area to the radius of the turbine or compressor wheel. For the turbine, a larger A/r usually means more spool up time but also more flow on the top end. I`m not sure what the optimal A/R is on a rsx with a T3 turbine, turbine wheel, and standar bearings is. Call Garret or turbonetics and see what they recomend.

If you use cybernation's manifold you're good to go. THey mount their turbos underneath the manifold for extra clearance.

There is however a guy on the boards who is using a log style manifold with his T3/T4 and he's been running strong with NO HEAT WRAP either.:nervous:

So all I need to find is a turbo with a T3 flange? What about making sure the piping fits on the inlet and how about the downpipe flange that will go on the side of the turbo?
