Default Re: Turbo Specifications

The numbers on your turbo are pretty much just casting/lot numbers and don't tell us much.

If your car isn't converted to intercooled and the turbo is still in the stock location (back at the firewall), then the T34 is about all that will fit back there without modifications.

The usual suspects, most likely ...

Precision Turbo, Full Throttle Speed, Cotton's, Quad Air, etc.

Default Re: Turbo Specifications

There are other options out there but they are custom set ups. This means that you will need to do a bunch of work to make the larger turbo fit. I do know of a 76 turbo that's been fitted to a HA car and it works pretty good, but the machine work ect was very costly. Special adaptors are needed and they have to be made by a competant (sp) machinist and welder fabricator.
