Jig,

What you will want/need/wish to check..

The Auto Aero came with a 200bhp ecu (the 2.3TCSE one) and a Garrett Turbo.

The Manual Aero came with a 225bhp ECU and a Mitsubishi TD04HL Turbo.

If you've had the gearbox replaced with a manual you probably have a mix of both.

Yes scaero it still has the garret T25,it also has a MBC.My next question was should I keep the T25 or switch to the TD03 before doing more mods.Ultimate goal is high 200's bhp .Any advice would be appreciated.

I would say that if you are looking for a reliable amount over 250bhp then seriously consider a TD04 for some other hybrid, but I'd carry on with what you have until you kill it.

The T25 is a good little unit and spins up and gives the 2.3 tremendous boost form almost 0 revs, but by 4000-4500rpm it's running out of steam and having trouble maintaining boost without lots of heat.

The TD04 boosts much better higherr up, but other turbo's are even better.

Some people here even have roller ball bearing turbo's, madly short boost spin up and good boost....

Yea was thinkin why waste a good turbo as its only done 50k.Is 250 bhp to much for the T25,will it just kill the turbo or damage the engine too?What other turbo's are worth considering?
