while the search button is a great tool, im a nice guy and will help you out. if you are to do a small turbo set up... and i do mean SMALL turbo... and make roughly 150-175hp, you should be fine the way you are.. but i wouldnt think twice to look into getting a lower mileage motor to do a simple stock rebuild on to boost like a D16Z6 or even another D15B7.

you can do a "junkyard" set up with a HF manifold, adapter plate and a number of small stock turbochargers and have a fun little set up. and even on a small set up like that i would still recommend atleast 450cc injectors and a walbro 255 intank fuel pump. the biggest portion of basicly any set up is the tune. a bad tune even on the strongest of motors will have the motor blow, so when you go to tune the car make sure it is from a reputable tuner with many good reviews from other clients. there are a number of different tuning programs availible, but when you want to get to the better programs you will spend more to get more... if that makes sense.

i know there are plenty of people on this site running high mileage turbo cars on stock motors with no problems, iv seen a stock Z6 making 186hp run for 5 years with 200K+ on the clock with not one single problem. its really your call on it, but its never bad to have another spare sitting around just incase something wrong does happen.

IMHO I would get another stock block to boost. You can get another block and put everything together, then when your ready to tune it just swap motors and go. READ THIS https://www.d-series.org/forums/force...ere-first.html

mileage isnt a concern. the health of the motor is the big player.

Id keep the turbo small. a K03 would be plenty, and have you see around 150-160whp, which is plenty to get around town in.


It would not hurt to find a cheap backup motor first though

Grab an extra engine for the corner just in case if it is your daily driver.

I'm getting ready to boost a d15b2 with hf manifold and 16g, but I have an extra motor chilling.

dont use a DSM turbo. the size makes it pointless if you want power and reliability. no point of a turbo swap if you can only use it if you rev up.

go on ebay

K03 or K04 turbo

nice, small, and spools fast. you can actually feel boost before 2000 rpm


you will need to have a machine shop make a flange or flange adapter though, its not a common flange for turbos

If you can find a used one, grab the turbo from the newer Mini Cooper S.
Should spool REALLY early and make maybe 150whp.

best way to check, do a compression test, if it all checks out then go for boost, if not just run it till it pops and then swap it

Are you really referring to DSM t25/t28/16G as a Large turbo? You will have slightly higher RPMS than a K03/4, but really, compared to an actually LARGE turbo, the RPMS you will see boost/full boost in are exceptionally LOW.

A DSM turbo would suit your needs well
