Turbo Specs question-Holset HX35W
I have a used turbo kit that I'm planning to install soon. It came with a Holset HX35W, but I can't find the A/Rs or anything for it...not really anything but serial #s and a few random single digits cast on it. Most turbos I've seen have the #s cast right on the turbine and compressor housings.
I got this setup from a guy who had it on a stock 5.0 and he was pretty happy with it until he blew his engine. Problem is mine's not stock, its around 300rwhp. It's a '93 shortblock with Edelbrock Performer heads/intake and F303 cam. I'm afraid the turbo might be too small, but don't know the specs for it. I did find a compressor map...which seems to show its a bit on the small side if I read it right. Also is this turbo physically upgradable? I'd hate to get rid of it, since its in perfect shape. Its freshly rebuilt and spins freely with no shaft play at all.
It also came with a large front mount intercooler and 42 lb injectors. I still need to get a bypass valve since I'm planning on running this draw through. I'm looking for around 425-450rwhp max for now, since its a stock block and will be used 90% street driving.
