The MAF to turbo will need altering as the Garrett intake is larger.


An adaptor is required to mount the turbine housing the your exhaust manifold.


An actuator needs mounting to the turbo.


Your DP needs altering to fit on to your chosen discharge housing.


You will need a new turbo oil feed hose.


Both turbo water lines.


Drill the turbo oil return pipes flange bolt holes out to 8mm.


Changing the Garrett plastic bearing cages for metal ones is very wise as they tend to fail if you switch the car off when it's hot!


Some like to run an oil flow restrictor but these have been known to cause multiple turbo failures, I've ran without one for the last 7 years on my GT2871R.



Green injectors are not big enough to exploit the Garrett, I use Astra VXR injectors for cars with either a 19T or mine. You will NOT need bigger than VXR's for 400BHP. If I run about 420BHP with an AFR 11.8 I can still richen it up to be in the 10s.
