I have just recieved my (your old) T04E 57mm trim turbo from Majestic Turbo . The shims and downpipe were also included . To those of you who don't know I bought Jim T's old turbo . I did about a week of discussion with him and some more reasearch . I was going to get the 46mm trim T04E because I was going to run a little lower boost like 14 psi peak, I always did have the 57mm in the back of my mind . Jim said he used to have the 46mm and said that this one pulled a bit better at 12psi and up . I am sure that the 46mm would have been more than I needed but this used/remanufactured turbo less than a year old was CHEAPER . Plus I got a 3 mandrel bent down pipe . The size of the turbo blows my mind the research says it should do just fine a low boost because of the low surge line and high effeciency throughout the range, my eyes tell me that it's way to friggin big . Jim I know you are kind of pissed about the OTHER THING which I won't sayanything about other than I am still in your corner . I think I got a good deal on the turbo and you got some extra money to help out with your 60-1 turbo . Yeeeeee Haaaaaaw, anyone else reading this I am now looking for a starion intercooler .

It should be more than enough I can send you a picture of it

I will let go for $250
remember it is an HKS for the 280zx
well, I may be able to throw in the HKS piping if you are interested
helluva lot better than muffler shop tubbing

Yes I do remeber asking about it, the price is excellent and would be perfect for my application . The reason I did not bite is because I have heard that shipping from Mexico is a pain in the ass . My company actually get boilers fabricated there and customs have been a headache . I am a little gun shy too I also got burned on a mail purchase a while back . I am going to be in Mazzatland in Feb 22 to Feb 28 on vacation any change we could swap money and goods there . I would definately buy it .

I was just about to make a post to you asking if you had received your new turbo. Most upgraded turbo's you buy will almost always have something that has been used at one time or another, no big deal. In comparison to the stock unit, that turbo looks like a monster. You should see the 60-1 I have, 4 inlet and the compressor housing is even bigger than yours. You should have no problem with spoolup, I was able to get 14-15psi in 1st gear. You should be able to get atleast 12-13 at the minimum, I don't know if you have any port work done! Anyway, when mounting the unit you will need to replace the studs in your manifold to longer ones. You will have to judge for yourself what you need. Also, make sure you place a gasket on both sides of the shim provided. I hope Kevin sent you 2 new shims, although if he sent the old ones they should be ok. Just place some copper seal spray on them. Let me know if you need any assistance. Also, I think the wastegate actuator is a 7-9 psi unit.

I apologize

I hate to sound like a racist ******* and I don't like Mexicans, I deal with Mexicans a fair bit they are good people . I am sorry I got your home place mixed up whooops, I know another Carlos with a ZX from Mexcio City . What I was getting at is customs and shipping is a bit difficult . What website thing were you talking about for transactions . I live in big old Saskatchewan Canada, I wonder how it would cost to ship probably $100 american . It might be cheaper for me to get a BEG i/c . I am intrested !!
