Well out with the old and in with the new. The 88 was nice and all but had to much rust on it for what I really wanted in the end. So my buddy found this 93 rust free car in Louisiana and had it shipped up here with his intention of doing a mild street car and selling it. So we made a deal and I took it off his hands. Basically gonna be my first long project that I'm gonna take my time on and do it the way I wanna do. The guy that had it wanted to do a 2 tone sunburst orange and bourbon brown. Not a huge fan so I'm gonna reliant the whole car. Good thing is that all the body work is done and car is in primer.
Some of the spec are
-AJE k-member with tubular a arms
-MM caster camber plates
-UPR coilovers and strange adjustable struts , 94 spindles
-boss pro 3 in cowl
-obvious full interior that i will be stripping out besides the dash
-brand new exterior moldings

Who recommended that turbo to you?

With that compression I am guessing it will be on E85?
No one recommended. It I just did my research and looked around. Highest compression will be 10-1 depending on my gasket thickness as well. It'll be 110

Plus I for the price I got the turbo for was a huge steal so that's another reason why I bought it

Just a friedly suggestion, you might want to talk to someone like Jose @ Forced Inductions. That 83mm wheel is gonna kill the power quick and low in the RPM. The standard 96mm turbine wheel 1.32 AR would probably work better with that size motor. A standard S480 w/ 96mm, 1.32AR would be cheap and work well.

If you use that one, to start, be sure that you have a way to measure back pressure pre-turbine. So you can see what your intake manifold pressure versus back pressure is. That will tell you a whole lot. Plus help someone get you a turbo that will work best for your engine, power goal, spool time and so on.

Yeah that was my first turbo I wanted but Im on an extremely tight budget. And I got the 475 for real cheap. Plus I'm sure I could send it back and get a different turbine wheel

I do appreciate the advice I made a newb error. Still new to the bigger style turbos. I'm gonna talk to Jose and see if he can do something with the turbo I have now to make it work better with my motor

At least for what you have into it you can sell it off easily or upgrade it to different specs. But I bet it would work out better to sell it and buy a unit that is going to work better that is used or new.

The BW line is very nice as you can swap them out and not have to worry about changing the kit. The turbo you have will spool very quick which is nice on the street. But back pressure will limit the RPM and power that turbo will make on the combo. Use the turbo you have and compair the manifold pressure versus the back pressure pre-turbine. Then call Jose and tell him what you have, the back pressure you have and so on. He will let you know what should work best for you. They custom build & test BW units in house. Turn around time from order to shipping the unit is usually very quick. Then that combo will really sing!
