is it one that came off our cars? If so then just swap over the lines (oil/coolant) and bolt it right up. If it isn't then you need to weld a new flange onto your manifold or buy on of the premade manifolds from one of the venders. Then I believe you would also need new lines as well, best to just get the braided lines.

i believe so, though it comes with a manifold, so it might be different

Can you post a pic of the turbo? That way one of us can tell you if its compatable with your car. What year is it off of? Because if it happens to be an 87 TII Garret than it has a narrower exhaust bolt pattern. As for the lines,your stock Mistu ones will work bur may need to be tweaked to fit perfectly. I would go with a good set of braided lines like sad above if I were you though.

That's a TI turbo.

Doesn't even look like it is converted to TII. With the way it is spray painted, I wouldn't count on it being almost brand new.

It's swingvalve will not bolt up to your downpipe. It'll need a intake adapter. It will require you to rotate the compress housing as well as plugging the EGR port. It'll also require the wastegate can to be relocated. Don't forget the turbine housing will need modifying as well.

If you feel like doing all the work, go for it.

That is alot of work to be done. I have A t1 converted to a t2 on my car now that i converted. I am going to be selling it if you are interested it only has a 1000 miles on it. I bought a S60, the t2 was not enough for me. My t2 i have i changed the compressor housing to a real t2 so it is the same specs.
