Now, before I let this guy off the hook, how do you know if a turbo is bad, or good?

Hey Russ!  Or is it brokedick from now on. All you can do is check back and forth and wiggle for the bearings. Can't check seals until you run it. Has it got the vj11 compressor housing?  Gus.  PS let us know so I can make a statement in the other forums.

Gus-
I spun the turbine and it seems OK.  No play that I can detect.
The housing has VJ11 on it (see second pic), so I assume it's correct!
Perphaps I need to make a run out to Waukegan and let Phil take a look..........

Hey Russ! It sounds like you've got a good unit and yes I now see the vj11. You may have change the oil lines on the car to match the ones on the turbo. Honestly I thought you were at this point already. What was on the motor that came out of the GTX. Also by-the-way, that was very generous of you in your dealings with rocket. Ireally wish I was closer to you guys so I can physically share things with youall. I would probably be inclined to by rocket a wire feed welder, etc. Gus

The GTX came with the same turbo our XR2's have. No upgrade there. From what I was told, this new turbo should be a bolt-on! I have to meet up with KoopCK and find out if I need anything done to it (he will be installing it in the Spring).

The turbo is a properly done VJ14/VJ11 hyrbid IIRC. Thusly is retains the stock VJ14 CHRA and all coolant lines and oil fittings should stay the same.

The VJ11 uses the same oil fittings but the coolant lines are larger and in different locations.

When you get to running the Tbird CHRA the VJ11 coolant banjoes work as well as the 11's oil return, but I'm told the high pressure oil feed for the restrictor is a different thread pitch. (SAE vs. Metric) You can either re-tap it or force thread the restrictor in (i did that, lol)
