I'm pretty sure it's 54mm's. I've got a 160 in my turbo right now, and I'm pretty sure it's suppose to be for a SBC (small block chevy, 305-350-400). Jes what ever you get, make sure it's a 54mm one.
And, whot turbo? I musta missed the thread with you getting a new rig? Comeon girlfriend, DETAILS!!!!

Yeah, That EA performance page recommends 170 for the lowest because of condensation in the oil. I don't know where he was from because I ran 160 in my BRAT with no problems. Works good. (Especially if your sube runs hot) Yes, It is 54 MM but REMEMBER: It is NOT ROUND.

girlfriend? what you saying? vixen would be more appropriate!

anyway.............................its an 87 gl-10 turbo TrashWagon6. thats ea82t in soob speak i gots a single row radiator, and clutch fan for now. there was no radiator in the car when i got it.

would 160 be too cold for winter? i could run it anyway, as long as i dont have problems. i like to gets on it, and i know a soob will get hot driving in snow.

condensation in oil wont bother me, it will probably evaporate, at least its not coolant!
