I know how to use the site... just mildly surprised there were enough S8's imported that the prices are that low.

And it could be that they're reliable engines that never pop, which means prices are low because of low demand.

Are you talking about the GT2560R? If so it looks like it would be under 8 inches.

My friend uses one of those on his 3.4L Camaro, definitely a good turbo!

How much clearance do you have to the sides of the engine?

Will at the strut towers there is about 3 inches per side then it opens up more when you go forward of them . it looks to be really roomy especially where the trunk starts to narrow i think i can get it all in the space between the trunk and the engine that includes a water to air intercooler

I’d be weary of those ebay turbos, they’ll work for a little while but with all the time and effort you will be putting in to installing them it hardly seems worth the risk. You may be better off with a name brand, maybe slightly used from a top seller. Ebay can be great for cheap intercoolers though, they may not be as good as some of the name brands but they have been proven useful in many applications.

OK now that i know what the Exhaust A/R does for the turbo should i go with a smaller a/r and use a big waste gate to git rid of to much exhaust back pressure and will that work or should i use a larger a/r and not as big a waste gate

Check out: http://www.turbobygarrett.c...bygarrett/webadviser , just click on "get advice" on the bottom of the page. You plug in a few numbers and it will recommend a range to turbos and the compressor map for each one recommended.

just stock 88 brakes and why keep the 5 x 100 because i have wheels for it and it's not that hard to drill the new hubs for the 5 x 100

I don't have the strut on yet but i would say yes it will but the only time it should see full extension it is when on a lift you should not see any more then a few inches of suspension travel while driving but if i need to i can cut and weld the corner of the mount at an angel

There are VAG products that use the 5x100 pattern already (like the TT...). Can you use a hub from one of those cars so you don't have to redrill the Passit hub?

$255 is definitely not a Garrett. That said it's $255! Buy 4! Ha, ok, maybe not. I would suggest you run the BoostAdvisor program to find what your engine needs for the power level you want. It's so easy nowadays to find the numbers so you can select the proper size turbo. No need to guess anymore.
