In near future I have to decide what turbos should
I use for upgrade. Orginal rotomasters leak some oil in to
pipes. Has anybody thought about garret gt line turbos and
which model would be appropriate for the available space?
I was thinking about gt30r or gt30/40r if they fit?

The problem is the wastegates. The rotomasters have an integral wastegate. Normal turbos use a wastegate that is separately plumbed into the exhaust system. Its gonna be a tough job but it can be done.

There is option that I make or have someone make me a new
exhaust headers which encorporate external wastegates and
maybe flow little better than orginal log headers. If that takes care
of external wastegate problem which turbos would be possible to mount to orginal space?

Moi,

Olen kiinnostunut turboistasi, jos olet kiinnostunut myymään ne upgreidauksen jälkeen. Olen suunnitellut tulla työn merkeissa käymään Helsingissä syyskuussa, asutko Helsingin lähellä ? Onnea turbon vaihtoon, olen myös itsekkin innostunut näistä asioista

Yes, I could rebuild old turbos but they are about 20year old technology
so now I would like to get apportunity to use newer tech turbos like
garret gt line or similar. I`m also changing tpi for modified stealth ram and better heads and cam.
