What size exhaust housing does it have? Those don't make great singles especially if you plan on towing. Usually it has a 17cm housing with a wastegate or a 19cm non wg. That is awfully big to get spinning as a single. I would Imagine at least a 200hp injector would be required to spool it.

That housing should have a cast number in it, which will be your ex. housing size. Generally they are pretty large which means relatively cool temps, but lower drive pressure and slower spool up. You will also need some sort of adapter to get from the stock t3 flange to the t4 flange on the turbo, and you will have to hook up oil and the downpipe. Since you already have the charger, it honestly shouldn't be that hard to get hooked up and going and shouldn't be too expensive either.

I would imagine that you would need at least 150hp injectors to really get it spinning, and it won't be great for towing. The auto trans trucks seem to like 12-14cm housings for normal driving on the street and the sticks can run 14-16cm housings with enough fuel, and you're looking at larger than that. If you have a stick drivability won't as bad. I guess, I'm just saying that there are definitely better turbos out there for the application, but for the price it might be worth it for you to try.

yea i was gona use it for a twins project but i dont have the money right now or the fabrication skills to do it i was gona use the stocker for the small turbo what kind of boost could i see out of jus the h2e with 150 to 200 hp injectors and i have a 5 speed to

150hp or 200hp injectors, with a fueling box, I'd imagine you could get close to the 60psi mark with that thing or possibly over it, since its non wastegated. Having the 5spd will help a lot too.

I would b careful going over 50 I blew 2 of those up .. I could do 45lbs with 200 sticks and just a smarty and it ran very well , I used a 17 non gated housing .. I thought it spooled great but the smarty helped on that too I have an adaptor for 50$

where did you get the adaptor from and was your truck an auto or a stick, how was the driveability and fuel mileage

What do you think killed it, Drive pressure, heat, spinning too fast, or a difference in pressure from the compressor side to the turbine side and a weak shaft?

I'm just curious, because I have one in a twins set up on my truck, and will be running a bit more fuel, and I would like to avoid any problems. I'm running a 19cm none gated housing on the h2e which is on bottom, and a 12cm hx35, externally gated up top, with a drag comp and 150hp sticks. I'm usually not hard on my truck. But since these aren't a common turbo, it would be great to hear from someone with some better experience with them.
