Ok I tried googling this a couple different ways and I couldn't really find what I was looking for. I would really like to swap in an S60R turbo and manifold in to my car, and I know the manifold is pretty much a direct bolt on. What about the turbo?? I remember hearing that the oil lines are slightly different from the T5's but how easy is it to make it work?? Should I run the R injectors also or will my T5 injectors work?? The reason why I'm asking is there is an S60R manifold and turbo on Ebay for about $755 BIN and it seems like a good deal.

Re: Swapping an S60r Turbo in to my T5 (chillidawg)

These are slightly different engines (IIRC bore and stroke is a bit different - T5 has a few fewer cc's), so I think mixing up the injectors could be a problem. Bolting on different turbos is more doable, you'll be increasing turbo boost... the engine can probably handle it but it might shorten the life expectancy a bit.

Yeah but with higher boost you need more spark and fuel right?? That's why I thought swapping to R injectors might be a thought, I think they're only 330cc but I might be off. Anyone know anything about the difference in oil lines?? Thanks for the input

Re: Swapping an S60r Turbo in to my T5 (chillidawg)

What about the ATP Manifold?? Does anyone know anything about that manifold or is anyone using it. Their website says that you can use like three different sized turbos with it and I'm sure the R turbo would work on it. Here is a link to the manifold on their website.<p><A HREF="http://www.atpturbo.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Product_Code=ATP-S60-002&Category_Code=V5CYL" TARGET="_blank">http://www.atpturbo.com/Mercha...V5CYL</A><br>

You'll have to buy the associated coolant/oil lines from dealer for s60R and I would definitely do the green injectors along with the turbo and get a good tune for it. Also do downpipe while you're in there. T5 blocks are very strong. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0">

a good tune wont bend rods. ifnt420 (sickass xc70 from taiwan) has a k24 with green injectors on a 2.4t (LPT) motor with stock internals and is pushing 250+ awhp. It was tuned by marco (MTE). Everything will be fine provided a good tune.

Re: (Impulse922)

ATP's website says it has a manifold that will fit a fwd and awd S60. Not sure if there is any modification though but if I were going to do it I would definitely contact them first just to make sure. Here's the link.<p><A HREF="http://www.atpturbo.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Store_Code=tp&Product_Code=ATP-S60-002&Category_Code=BCS" TARGET="_blank">http://www.atpturbo.com/Mercha...e=BCS</A><br>
