I've very recently come to the conclusion that my other project just isn't going to work out... after a few years, and thousands of dollars, countless hours... just giving up and selling it all.<p>However, somebody mentioned this turbo might work on my S60. I have the 2.5T AWD, btw.<p><br><IMG SRC="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v639/jerkitt/FOR%20SALE/IMG_9722.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v639/jerkitt/FOR%20SALE/IMG_9721.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><br>It's an Evo III 16G turbo... <p>I know the exit to the downpipe is probably totally different, but I'm going to get a DP custom made right away anyways... so what better time to switch it up, if possible.<p>A few questions...<p>A.) WILL this fit/work at all?<p>B.) What might I need to change? Do our turbos have the same type of wastegate or is it elsewhere?<p>C.) What kind of gains, if any, would I see from swapping in this almost new turbo?<p><br>Any feedback is appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Re: Will this turbo work?? :eek: (jerkitt)

It would be easier selling this and get a Volvo 16T turbo, which is a straight bolt on. <br>Otherwise, you may need to make custom oil lines, coolant lines, exhaust manifold flange, downpipe flange.

im pretty sure EVO turbos are reverse scroll, so no, it would not work..( turbo looks pretty goofy too)<p>the HAHN racecraft 16g, however, will work.

I have no problem just selling the thing too... I figured I'd look into it first.<p>If I can find bigger direct bolt-on turbos later, then I'll just do the downpipe alone for now.<p><br>Anybody here wanna buy a turbo that WON'T fit an S60? <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">
