the hx35 is good for 500bhp how much do you have to spend on a garret for that £1000 ? i got this hx35 reconditioned unit for 299!
i think i will get it remapped at torque developments thurrock but im gona have to run it in for 500 miles first and at moment i goto sort out return fuel line 1000cc injectors what afm to use ,any help there anyone??? an few other bits ,,oh and fit pair front recaros i got from type r :D


ah okay i didnt do much research on it just looked it up to see and said id just say it and see yano urself, i would like to see what you push out before i decide on buying a turbo, hardly know where theres anthor hx35? custom manifold i geuss? rather big injectors are they not? have u got a wide band very easy for getting ur afm with one, my engine is pretty much same as urs less the cams for now

I've been waiting for a Holset hx35 build on an altezza! Had one on my 1991 eclipse gsx. The turbo will be good for about 550hp if running e-85 and about 450 running pump. This turbo is hard to control, meaning lag lag lag- 3.5k rpm and bam shes off! The hx35 should have a t3 twin scroll 14cm2 housing and a 3" v-band exhaust flange for down pipe standard. If it has a t25 inlet it is a fake. Turbos much too large for that. Good luck with the build cant wait to see a dyno
