I have for sale a used AiResearch M11 turbo I bought last week on ebay. Here's the bottom line:
The guy advertised it as a Garrett T3/T4 turbo which could be used on the Nissan SR20DET motor with no modding. This is why I bought it, as a gift for my husband to use on his newly built SR20DET. It came in the mail today, and it is definately NOT a T3/T4. It has a T3 flange which I guess lead this genius to believe it was a T3/T4. The fact is...it's made by AiResearch company. Model number is M11. I know the '87-'88 Ford T-bird TC's used these...so I'm assuming this may be what it came off. Not 100% though.
Although it's a nice turbo...no side to side shaft play, spins freely, pretty big in size (is bigger than my T2 turbo) my husband doesn't want it (It isn't a T3/T4 *pout pout pout*) so I'm in a position to take a loss and sell it, and try to get some of my money back, as opposed to dealing with this jerk on ebay dispute forums for 800 years.
I thought maybe one of you crafty fellows might find some use for this thing on your TD
. I bet due to it's size it could push some decent HP but not take a year and a half to spool, which is always nice.
I'm asking $250 OBO for it plus shipping of course. Also if needed I could take some more pictures if you'd like...just let me know what you'd like to see.
