Hey guys, I guess my turbo took a dive and is unrepairable. It is from the APR stg 3 kit. What turbo could I replace it with that will bolt right up and not require a whole lot of tuning.

Re: blown gt28rs? what next? (05GLI)

there is a gt2871r with a gt28r compressor cover like the ones apr uses, think its a 52trim. But any t25 flaged turbo will work with some minor mods to the intake and possibly turbo outlet pipe.
of course, sw will also have to be tweeked a little

So, there is nobody out there with a APR stg 3+ kit who upgraded their turbo. I just want to figure out how much it's gonna cost me before I decide which one to go with. I would prefer to go with one with minimal expenses and modifications but would also consider going up to a gt3071 or 76.

Talk to Arnold from Pag-parts. You might be able to send him you compressor cover and have him match up the covers. After that, it should be a bolt on affair. Any gt25 flanged internal gate should work, it's just the comp housing that makes things a hassle. Or you could just use a 90* elbow to connect a new cross over pipe. There are many options. OR! you can talk to Keith and have them sell you the cobra cross over hose setup for the 2871r kit they sell for the TT stage 3+. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

I'm talking about the blue hose in the pic...

is that the green hose? if so, then you could iliminate all the piping underneath such as the pancake pipe!
i too am a 3+ owner and would like to know the options myself, i too was going to talk to arnold since he took care of my needs when it came to building my bottom end http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
