Alot of people ask about turbo size. The key to the right turbo size is to know your info.

Motor size
Rpm range
HP goals
single or twins

That is the main key to get started on a turbo(s) size.

If you're going the diy route on a turbo setup, learn how to read a compressor map. Many aftermarket turbos have compressor maps readily available. The OEM turbos take some searching (if they're available at all).

Once you have the information Northwest listed above, you can start looking through compressor maps and compare how well different turbos will work for you.

Have a good day!

great turbo calculator and tools

I have used the TurboFast online calculator since 98, for the various turbo kits that I made way back when. The real power output of the recommended turbo was dang close to the theoretical power for the turbo match calculator, it also helped me select injector size.

They now have updated to the calculator for newer garrett gt turbos. I used the older program that had all the stock diesel turbo models. They are more plentiful, make power, and dirt cheap! Cool

I found it interesting what the program suggested I use.

2qty/GT25/To4/H3/P/1.32ar for a 529cu/20lb/6200rpm engine
