Here'* the one I was looking at. A 63 trim T3 should be about the same for the flow charts

hmm..... the specs(if they are correct) also put it close to a GT3071R....

el cheapo measures 54.1/69.977 on the compressor compared to 53.1/71

that map you posted is NOT a T3-60... it'* a T04E-60.

it does look to flow correctly for an otherwise internally unmodded 3500.

i would look into seeing if you can get replacement turbine and compressor wheels though.

oh, and this is for your reference, you may need it. a .63 turbine A/R is going to spool ALMOST as quickly as the T25 did... mine measures ~.8, a choice made on the merit of traction.

Ya, I found a T04e map. Why do you think I need new wheels?

from what has been passed around as knowledge on the inarwebz..... the chinese turbos aren't so well balanced, not to mention the compressor and and turbine are balanced together, not individually like a garrett part would be.

"lucky" me, i killed both due to not knowing the turbine shaft was a left-handed thread so i'm planning on grabbing garrett parts to put a turbo together that'* costing me a total of ~$400 but is essentially a true garrett for a fraction of the cost.

otherwise, el cheapo trubos usually do pretty well all things considered.

Honestly, at $90 I have no reservations about buying a new one every year. LOL

what happens when you get one that wasn't balanced correctly though? aluminum shrapnel going through the motor is not good.

if you can find someone local to balance the existing parts, that would be great, but if not, i would be VERY cautious at least the first couple of times the compressor actually spins up enough to cause pressure.
