    Default New to boost and full of questions.....

    Ok guys I've decided to turbo my 03 gsxr 1000, I bought a used kit with everything except a inline fuel pump and fuel pressure gauge. I'm going to put a thick head gasket and head studs in it as well. The turbo is a T04E .50 a/r compressor, .63 a/r turbine with an internal waste gate. My question is will this turbo work for me since I'm only planning on running 5 - 7 lbs of boost or should I find one with an external waste gate. Thanks for any help you can give me cause I'm going to need it!!

    External WG is the way to go...

    You can probably convert your turbo to external wastegate if you or someone near you can do some minor fabrication
    post a pic of the turbo ,
    it will give you much better control of your boost levels and reduce the chance of a meltdown

    Internal wastegates are known for boost spiking no matter what kinda boost..Your going have do major mods to convert it..but have been used for years//.

    We had a Buddies converted but the company took 6 months to do and I wouldnt recommend them to anyone..

    That turbo is easy
    unbolt the wastegate section and bore the existing wastegate outlet
    with any luck its the same flange (There are 2 that look like that) as something like this

    this might help, I converted to from internal to external. the v bands are optional. I dont have any pictures one the 3rd version. I have since moved the wastegate a little more and cermaic coated the exhaust housing.




    this is how the monsterosity started

    Don't put a thicker head gasket on. You'll throw away power. You want the squish. You certainly don't need to lower the comp on that kinda boost.
    8 lbs of boost and lower the compression is like adding 4 psi. Plus it's a turd from a stop.
