Probably something similar to the T-bird turbos. Maybe a T3 .60/.63 60 trim or the smaller .60/.48 60 trim...

The A/R Hot side is .63 and Cold A/R is .60. The trim is .48. Model number is Garrett TB0348. Hope that helps a little.

Im not sure what the tbird turbo is for trim size. I know that the IHI unit on some of the tbirds is good for 250hp and the t3 unit from others is good for about the same. You can use the tbird ihi compressor housing and compressor wheel to make a hybrid with a probe ihi rbh5 that will give you good flow characteristics with minimal lag on a smaller displacement motor at lower boost levels than 15psi.

It really depends on what year GN youre talking about. If its the 87 then it probably did have a super 60 but good luck finding a turbo off of one from that year. From 84-86 i know they used the turbo i mentioned above.

from what ive seen, theyre basically a larger t3 turbo whould should be perfect for between 250 to upper 200's
