    Anyone know? The Vortex never talks about trim, A/R, compressor maps, etc. All it is over there is "upgrade to a K04".

    Anyone have the specs on these turbo's? A buddy of mine wants to turbo his early 80's tercel ( :ugh ) w/ a 1.5L (he's custom fabricating everything to fit). I figure a dirt cheap K03 would do the trick.

    i dont know the wheel specs off hand, but just from physically looking at them, and knowing how they act on the 1.8 motor...it should b a decent turbo for a 1.5. However, u may have a hard time getting a manifold, as the turbo is a kkk variant.

    The manifold will be custom made, so it shouldn't be too much of a problem... and this tercel is far from a sleeper...well, i should say far from being un-noticeable...

    Prepare yourself for some good laughs..........
