Chris,

More info please. A/R of turbine and which housing did you go with? Who did you buy it from? Wastegate, non-wastegate? Did you buy it as a kit or are you peicing it together yourself? What adapter are you using? etc etc...

For me it was a toss up between the GT30R(3076) and the Holset - the Hotsex was a third of the price so I went with that but might still go with the GT30R.


yeah, im interested too. its kinda looks like an ATS kit...

BTW, hotsex? :shrug:



this is a Extremeboost kit,downpipe,oil lines,water lines,addapter. The turbo is from ATPTURBO.com GT30-76rWG 86AR t25/t28 exh. housing. My wastegate is TAil manifols is an SSautocrap :D ,

If you need more info about the turbo, go to atpturbo.com

I know a lot of mr2 people get them rebuilt which would obviously be in steel. Possibly steel ones come from USDM 94+ mr2's?

All USDM MR2 turbo (91-95) come with CT26, not CT20B.

CT26 w/ 46 trim

It actually has a noticable kick to it compared to stocker without an increase in lag at all. It still falls off in the upper RPM ranges like the stocker though since the exhaust isnt clipped
