Cool

OK, I've got my answer and for those who might benefit in the future. Its an old Turbo. From a company named Garrett/ AiResearch . AiResearch was then absorbed by Garrett. Back to the turbo. It's from a Mercedes Benz 300 SD W116, Diesel. Yes, Diesel but it doesn't know it. Don't laugh, these little Turbos were made when Turbos were in its infancy and not so highly developed like today. Specificly, the number are, Compressor 42mm, Turbine 49x65mm. These were the starting point for the turbo vehicles for Le Mans in Audi, Mercedes and BMW. Mercedes had a company named AMG who started the experimental back in the 70's. I just want to push it to see how much it will last. ol: I'm eliminate the waste-gate and use an external Wastegate. Why? Well, I just want to get the turbo going in my ride. Then I'll install a Garrett GT2252. The rest of the ingredients are almost all here.
