Well you won’t be able to make much power from it since your limited in torque. Also I got connections with Full Race and Mitsubishi
That's excellent you have connections. Hopefully someone here can utilize it.

As for torque, we are not hauling trees and lumber. We have a FWD Civic. We have all the torque we need to accelerate as fast as we need too.. I've raced many cars with more torque (Ex: Late model Mustangs, Type R's, Challengers, etc, etc) that can't even utilize the extra torque they have on street tires. It's never stopped us slow, 'torqueless' people from handling business.

I bet we could use that turbo just fine on the non-si platform. :D

I’d say with this TD03 you could make on a non Si around 280whp maxed out

Big thanks for the links and pics. You've always been good with that info. Guess I'm only making 226whp and 232lb-ft of torque. **sigh, kicks rocks** I give up! You win! :bow::rofl:

This turbo is an awesome find though. Thanks for posting it up.

Honestly, it is right up my alley. I'm all about gains on the low end AND the top end. No compromises! That's why I didn't go with the 27Won or PRL units. I'm interested in real world numbers though. I'm a bit sketchy on estimates. My buying the Si turbo was based on real world numbers. I do like what I am seeing though. A LOT!

Also, does the larger turbine wheel cross the threshold where buying a larger exhaust than stock would/should enable even more power gains?
It doesn't. Exhaust doesn't do shit.

Same thing my tuner said

Do the downpipe, do the front pipe, leave the exhaust alone!
I mean change the exhaust if you want a different noise lol

For those in Europe interested, I just contacted an official licensed MHI dealer. He confirmed the part number but told me there is no stock of this part right now in Europe. He also contacted the NL dealer. No price either. He estimates the cost to be around 1500€/1700$.
