I'm starting my quest on boosting my Y8. I'm thinking of going with a Super 60 and I found a good deal on a new 4 bolt discharge for $425. Is the 4 bolt not as common as the 5 bolt? If any what are the disadvantages of going with the 4 bolt over the 5 bolt? I want to retain AC and PS if that figures into the equation.

Thanks,

Jeremy

There's not an advantage per say. One just takes 4 bolts and the other 5. The only "advantage" is it's easier to remove a 4 bolt housing downpipe.

Thanks, ask a simple question and get a simple answer.

Only reason I asked was the below statement from SpoolinPerformance on H-T made it sound like I wouldn't be able to run AC with a 4 bolt.

also note- 4 bolt turbine housings have a diffrent placement than 5 bolt turbine housings . Hence, this is why people who put 4 bolt turbos on traditionally 5 bolt manifolds ( revhard, blox, inlinepro, etcc) have found they did some pretty CRAZY ( think, verge of putting a hole in the block) grinding or it simply did not fit in AC traditional configuration. You can only use these turbos with the compressor ( intake side) on the drivers side and route it in an NON-AC fashion. As a result, in doing so this particular mounting style requires the use of a half core honda civic radiator due to placement and angle. something to think about. I tell you this now so i dont have to tell you later.

the outlet bolt pattern shouldn't make a difference in if you can run a/c or not (the mani will decide that :wink: ) 4 bolt flanges should be hard to find

No manifold yet. I'm doing a lot research for my first boost project.
what kind of budget do you have? personally, i'd look into a nice cast manifold (they are cheap, and won't crack). If you buy a name brand mani; you should be able to get a bolt-on dp too

A 4 bolt flange/DP is not at all hard to find...probably easier to find than a 5 bolt considering most off the shelf Garretts that are used now are 4 bolt. If your buying a mani/dp setup you should be able to request which flange you want. One is no easier than the other.
The DP flange does not determine any clearance or compatibility issues.

Reason for this post is because I saw a deal on the following.

T3 super 60 in .42ar/.48ar combo or .42ar/63ar combo $425.00 4 bolt discharge.

Seems too good to be true either that or it's not a real Super 60. What do you guys think?
