    Hi guys. Is the turbo outlet housing I have pictured here the correct one to upgrade my SD33T? T3 inlet and 4 bolt T31 outlet with .48 A/R.

    Sounds about right, is there a picture of the waste gate?

    No they don’t show it or mention it.

    Call them and ask them for a picture. Better yet ask if it’s included and if it also includes the actuator. You can’t just go by what is posted online. It has to be a complete setup. As far as the exhaust side goes I’ll give you my 2¢. Nothing is written in stone as far as how it connects to your down pipe. I use a v-band to connect to my down pipe. Just my preference, easy to remove.

    Thanks. I ended up finding a used Mercedes housing so I’ll go that route. Did you make your own down pipe? The Mercedes housing actually has a v band flange already so I’ll probab just use it.

    Thus is my custom 3” SS down pipe setup. And cheapo turbo. I had an oil leak in my Mercedes turbo and did this swap. But the exhaust is all 3” SS connected by v band cosmos for easy removal. The only issue is the cheapo turbo doesn’t spool like my MB turbo.
