Help With Turbos 101...
Posted 22 January 2009 - 09:12 PM
Aside from a specific shape to the mounting points, what makes one turbo different from another? Size of the rotor or impeller or squirl-cage or whatever is in the "snail"?
Can two turbos of similar size be interchanged if you provide for the difference in mounts?
The TDI motor I have I don't think has it's turbo included. I've been looking into them and they are expensive buggers so I thought about adapting the turbo from the ea82t I just pulled out of the GL-10.
If it turns out that I really should be using the VW turbo, what would one look for if they were to go JY turbo shopping? Anything besides the obvious loose/noisy/grinding bearings and miles on the car?

If you were to use a turbo from lets say a kei car (600cc) it would spool very quickly, but wouldn't be able to support the air flow at higher RPMs.
Turbo diesel engines also operate at higher boost levels, but if you're adding a turbo to a non turbo diesel the lower boost wouldn't be a bad idea
