    it will not fit to the manifold and exhaust of the Z20NET.. no point changing the manifold or exhaust to fit that turbo as there are far more powerful turbos you would make a custom manifold to fit. The standard VXR turbo was not all that anyway, the 16T turbo i had on my Z20NET was more powerful the 15T on the VXR and you can now get meatier turbos that the one i had.. If you want to play with bigger turbos that will be 'bolt on' then you need to speak with Neo Brothers as advised above..

    remember the VXR is a V6 so it has more power straight from the tin. matching a turbo to an engine is not so straight forward and custom stainless manifolds, downpipes and maps will just add to the confusion and costs.. Neos have a tested selection to use off the shelf with all the components and Maptun to tune your ECU etc..

    no.....






    look you can fit just about any turbo to any engine, its almost just if they will fit or not but that must have the right size AR, impellers etc etc, these are carefully thought out beforehand. .. if you do not get one that bolts straight on you will need a custom manifold (£700), a custom downpipe (£600) and a custom map from somebody who knows what they are doing... there is no point fitting an astra vxr turbo which will not give you any more power than you get form your Td04 turbo when it will cost you nearly £1500 is custom parts and maps.. Just because something says VXR does not mean 'massive stonkin high power turbo'.

    you can buy a turbo off the shelf that will give the engine 370bhp, but you need to uprate your injectors, fuel pump, intercooler, pistons, cams, boost pipes, exhaust and downpipe plus cat. a proper remap is required on top of all that..

    is not just about a chucking a turbo at it from another engine you have heard of..

    its not just about a chucking a turbo on it from another engine you have heard of.. A guy I know with a Saab running the B207R which is the Z20NET with the Mitsubishi TD04L14t as standard had modified his with all these special custom parts, it cost him about £7k but his car pumps about around 600bhp.. What it really comes down to is the money you are prepared to throw at it...
