New to turbo world need help

I just purchased a fox with a on3 70mm kit. I believe the turbo went bad has a lot of smoke think the turbo seals went bad, whatís a good turbo to replace it with? Been looking at vs racing turbos maybe the gt45 China turbo this is no show car itís gonna be a summer beater do burnouts have fun. And I need to get it tuned how do I go forth with that assuming itís a a9l ecu do I go with sct chip and get it tuned or whatís out there looking to do it somewhat cheap like I said not a show or race car. Just wanna make 400-450 hp and beat the brakes off it. Thanks

The Chinese turbos are pretty hit and miss. I personally would go for a name brand unit. As far as tuning, an Anderson series iv PMS would be good for a daily driver, people even have great success with them in high hp applications.


For everything that is worthwhile, there is a counterfeit.

I agree with the moates Quarterhorse. I would prefer it over anything else (assuming we're still using the factory computer). It just has a pretty steep learning curve compared to the ancient Anderson PMS.

It you want a budget turbo try to find a used Master power T70 or T76. Or look at Magnum turbos. If your gonna go name brand you can’t beat something precision, turbonectics, borg Warner. Even holset.

Magnum makes a very nice turbo. If you can get a new one for around 500-600 then that's a good deal. Used, obviously a little cheaper.

I'm not sure the china GT45 will fit in an on3 kit on a fox. My magnum nearly touches the alternator pully and the GT45's are bigger.

Make sure your oil return is sufficient.
