Has anyone ever used a saab Garret turbo with .48 comp and .49 turbine. on their honda before. My turbo i got came off of a 91 Saab. Thanks in advance.
Also same question for a Saab Garret turbo with .42 comp and .48 turbine?
Both turbos are water cooled and about 150K miles on both of them. I have these two turbos and i just want to know so that i dont waste my time doing this setup. thanks.

Thanks Danz. I read that thread already like twice. But i just wanted to know if anyone has had first hand experience with it. So you stated that 200WHP would be perfect. I looked everywhere for this turbo on google to find info but i just cant seem to find any. It says M10 on the turbo and when i type it up all i get is the M10 turbo for BMW and the BMW M10. But thanks for the reply though.

I am assuming that .52/.48 a/r is close to mine a/r's. I also got a BOV from a SAAB like 86 or 87 and the cluster of that car read 160K. Do you think it would still be any good.

I think the saab has 150k and the bov has 160k both from seperate cars.
I'll take pix of both the BOV and turbo and the a/r if possible and the comp and turbine wheels.

.48/.49 turbo looks for sure to be a t3 flange to me.:chef:

I actually used a .42/.48 saab turbo in my otherwise stock d15z1 turbo and was quit impressed with it being small as it is. It put my VX from 92 crank hp to about 145 whp with just the turbo, DSM 1G sidemount, and z6 injectors.

That sounds encouraging. I didn't want to ask how much whp i would get out of it cause i would get flamed cause it would depend of the setup and tune to get wHp numbers from it, but thanks guys. so the .48/.49 and .42/.48 are near enough to be the same them. Ok.

You should have just borrowed it like i did lol. And about the BOV how do you go about knowing if its still in good condition. Do i have to slap it on and see if i get boost creeps, etc. And how much do you guys think it would cost to rebuild this .48/.49 turbo.

you should have thrown it over the fence, hereby liberating it from its greedy captors and gaining a free turbo in return
