Hey guys I got offered a T3 Turbo . 63 and .48 for $100 bucks (CDN)
which is nice and cheap. It has no shaft play, so its got me really interested.
My question is weather this would be a good choice for my setup.

Im running a D15b7 and SI Head(z6) (MiniMi)

I think this turbo spools up pretty quick like 2-2.5K so it sounds to me like im
going to always be in boost, and never really taking advantage of VTEC or more
specifically the higher range.. Also I guess my gas mileage is going to really suffer since I will be boosting all the time.

Let me know if this is true or not.

Thanks

Jamie

Boost depends on load. If you are not hard on the gas, the turbo won't always be spooling and gas mileage will be pretty good. On a recent trip, I was averaging about 30-35 mpg highway and I'm making 240whp.
A 0.60/0.48 will be spooling at around 3000 rpm depending on the gear...
