Hi, I am new to this site and to the concept of turbocharging. I have this turbo and I don't know what it is or what it came from or what I can use it on. Any information at all would be awsome!

I've done some researching and this perticular turbocharger will lag somewhat more the most turbochargers which the cause is from the compresser wheels, fits in most cars like 4 Wheel Drive Nissan Patrols and Honda Civic's. The Ball-Bearing M24 Garrett AR/60 is a big turbocharger and not sure if its true but apparently can put anywere between 300-700hpr. Air-Ratio is about 60, but the smaller the Air-Ratio is the quicker it will spool up.

Basically its good, and its big, but it takes a while to spool up, and the main fault is the compresser wheel can malfunction easy.

Hope that helps
