I decided on buying a TD06H 60-1 8cm turbo from Steamspeed's group buy. It will have a billet compressor wheel and a ported turbine housing. Hopefully I didn't make a bad choice.

I got in contact with Steamspeed after they had attempted to contact me about my order. It's a good thing I PM'd Steamspeed through NASIOC. They offered me something they had on the shelf ready to go. I don't know much about turbochargers other than the simple small turbos spool fast but lacks top end power and vice versa. So no Kinugawa, but it's a go with their STX76+. It looks like people are liking the Steamspeed turbos.

I installed the 1150cc injectors I had purchased from Synapse Engineering. The idle is smooth and revs freely. I had my tuner scale the injectors and a quick road tune just to get it running decently before my dyno tune. Another tune will follow when I get the turbo.

I tried mocking up my supporting parts by installing the Perrin Performance 3in turbo inlet and big tube uppipe. Looks like I will need to stretch out the inlet prior to install. I needed to bend a water line to have a stud from the uppipe to clear. The uppipe outlet is pretty big, but the turbo exhaust inlet is slightly bigger. The only uppipe I've researched that is bigger and probably be a better match would be the gtspec uppipe. They have the biggest piping of them all.

Don't forget that the GT Spec uppipe is a 3 bolts vs 2 bolts for most other manufacturers.

Nice!

I wasn't even aware it existed in 2 bolts.

So the GTSPEC uppipe is on backorder and don't know when they will be back on the shelves. I'll be sticking with the Perrin Performance big tube. I realized I got a bunch of Perrin stuff ready to be installed for my turbo swap.
