Just need you guys' opinions...is a Garrett T3 60/63 to big for a stock y8, and if it's not...when could I expect full boost? Just need yes or no and when you think it'll hit full boost. Thanks guys...

Its not to big if you like turbo lag....you will spool it but dont expect full boost to about 4800. Someone I knew sold his set up with a 60/63 just because of extream lag.

What the fuck are you talking about? T3's=small. They come on stock 1.8-2.0L cars. It is not too big. You will get full boost of 10psi with a free flowing exhaust around 4000-4500rpm. Thats about 1000rpm faster than you will get with any other t3/t04e. If you want boost earlier you are going to need to go with something like a T25.

Young D-boy: Go right ahead dude

By the way, I found a good Garrett 42/48 and bought it. It was $170 shipped, but I think that was a damn good deal considering how clean this thing is. I also ordered a Stealthmode oil kit. In about a week or 2, Im ordering my mani and downpipe from CC-FAB. Here's the turbo I bought. It will be here by Friday according to UPS. Tell me what you guys think about it...





Oh and it's coming w/ an internal gate. He didn't use it though so it's not installed right now.

He can always swap the dinky .42 compressor side for the larger .60 compressor side if he needs more top end. Should be a direct swap.

thanks for the replys so far guys. I got the new turbo in. It looks great. Here's a few more pics of it.





The guy I bought it from must have really cleaned the shit out of it b/c I can rub my fingers all around in the exhaust and I don't have any black on my fingers when I take them out. It doesn't even smell like exhaust in it anymore lol


Wastegate before...


What 20 minutes, brake cleaner, and some steele whool will do for you...
