Sorry, they have nothing in common. Mine is a 60* V and yours is 90*.

A good cheap trick is to block the downpipe on the rear mani and weld on a turbo flange to the crossover.

You also need to get oil to and from your turbo. So, you need to find a good spot to get oil on the block. On my motor, right next to the oil filter was a plug. To return the oil to the motor, you need to drill/tap your oil pan above the oil level. You also NEED a tuner and a wideband o2 sensor. Grab a set of L67 injectors too.

Why would i not put it under the oil level? and im sure there is a turbo junker somewhere in my area. Do you think a turbo like yours would support my engine well?

Cause that'* the rules! LOL

A GT3076R would work on your engine, but I would go bigger. A GT3076R turbine side is really small because it uses a T2 flange. This makes for a quick spool, but limits the amount of boost. I wouldn't do anything larger than a T4, but it really depends on your horsepower goal. If you want to do cheap, than try to keep the horsepower under 400. A T3 should be able to handle that.

I like internally wastegated turbos. That saves tons of money and exhaust work. I think the 3076R is the largest you can get with an internal wastegate. EDIT: GT3271 http://www.turbobygarrett.com/turbob...1_452203_1.htm

Ah I was wondering when the trans issue was coming. Start saving up for a 300m input shaft and 7/8' chain if you looking at 300hp

Are there any fwd trans I could just swap out? What is the 4t65-hd rated for? I do not know a thing about transmissions so what does the 300m and 7/8 thing mean

If you ask me, a 4t65-hd will be fine. I'm running a 4t60 (no hd) on my setup.
