I know you can get a t4 houseing so yes it will work but Im not sure how good. My buddys running a hx40 on his GSX and its awesome but thats a 4cyl car and im not sure how it would work with 8 more cylinders.

Well I should rephrase - you can rev it as high as you want to, but it'll stop making power due to the turbine getting choked off in the upper rpm range. I can't answer exactly when it'll happen because there are several different turbine sizes on holsets. It'll work fine though.
