I have a 2ltr engine, twin 40 dellorto carbs, 4 branch tube manifold and a few other tricks which i hope to rebuild and drop in, sometime soon. I migh...

Holset

Right - i have found the perfect set of wheels for you! Compressor - 3596536 - Inducer: 100mm, Exducer:154 Turbine - 3535977 - Exducer: 111, Inducer:129 This should give you 1.5kg/s airflow. Im not 100% where you can buy these parts, i think a turbo aftermarket supplier like scm turbo http://www.scm...

Your certainly right about the gap, as mentioned the largest compressor wheel we have here is about 6 inches. Then its a big jump to the next ones found eleswhere! I think you got the air flow values from our website, after a quick look i discovered the values are given for each of our turbos, for e...

for that kind of air movement i think you would need something around 140mm total diameter, i might be totally wrong as its not really my field, but i did check with somebody relatively "in the know". A compressors around that size is 3533272 Inducer - 93, Exducer - 142, max blade height - 46, total...
