It's an 89 Daytona Shelby. I blew the head gasket, so I decided since the head is off I might as well put a new turbo on it :thumb:

It has:
Stage 5 cal from fwdperformance.
Port matched intake mani, head, and exhaust mani.
52pph injectors
Massive turbo
Head studs


Soon to have:
E-85 tune
Bigger injectors
Ported Intake from fwdp w/ 52mm tb
255 fuel pump

The only part I'm stuck on the running an external waste gate with the stock exhaust mani. :confused:

I hope you guys enjoy



Here are some pics. :thumb:

New turbo on the left, stock Garrett on the right.



The two next to each other.



Bolted to the head ready for a test fit.



Test fit in the car. Fits nicely.


It clears the starter, firewall, and the Intake manifold.

EBay turbos fail usually in 1000 miles or so. So it might be a fun 1000 miles till it blows. Again I wouldnt suggest it. I blew one to pieces and had a piece of the wheel get stuck in my throttle body... Think about pieces of turbo going into your motor. Woohoo

It's a t3 flange. I found the web site for the turbo and they sell for $500 there. I know it's not a Garrett or a turbonetics, but I'm on a budjet and it's brand new so why not take up the offer

Is your car 2.2 or 2.5? Did the turbo come with any swingvalve? I have one of these on my Daytona, I had a hell of a time making a SV work.

If what you guys are saying about this turbo being "cheap" then I will upgrade to a holset or a garrett gt30r when this turbo grenades itself. But untill then, Ima boost the living day lights out if this turbo.

you never know, definitly put an oil restrictor in the oil feed lines to the turbo, and maybe one of those micron filters for the oil going to the turbo and you might get tens of thousands of miles out of her. Synthetic oils a must also :)

I've run a ristrictor on my cheap ebay turbo for 2 years and have had no problems with it. I definitely agree, get the restrictor. I think the excessive oil pressure plays a part in making these turbos fail

So you guys are saying too much oil can be bad? And I'm running 10w30 synthetic.
