CT27 upgrade for st185?

Would this turbo bolt straight up to a stock st185 manifold? If so would you need any other suporting mods to makesure everything runs right. Ie new injectors, fuel pump.

It is a direct replacement, they modify your stock CT26 (or someone else's core) to built these. Supporting mods depends on what pressure you are looking at running. If you run on wastegate spring pressure alone without a boost controller you should be more than fine.

Are one of these turbos worth it if you are going to have to replace your turbo anyway?

If you are wanting a direct replacement, yes. I plan on getting one for the increased power factor but that can wait because I don't need one at the moment.

The ct27 is a nice upgrade from stock. But it really depends on what kind of power goals you are looking for. If you are not looking for anything big and just want to replace the turbo and are looking for a bit more then the ct27 is for you.

Is there a European/UK alternative to the CT27?
