I think a .48 turbine is too small for a 3.0, you could go with a bigger compressor, especially since its a ball bearing turbo and will spool up lightning fast. Im a 4cyl guy and not a v6 guy though

so u think the .48 is too small?? but the compresor i think is fine, cuz the one i have on now is a ar 50, and the turbine housing is .60 something. so i could just use my old turbine housing and put it on the new turbo right?? i mean i would think it will fit.

.48 turbine size is too small. You need at least a .63.

ok so recap, the compressor side on the turbo im going to buy is a .63, now the turbine is .48. but my old turbo has a .63 on it, could i just use my old turbine housing ?? they are both t3 t4 's. and the turbine housing of my old turbo is made by precision, i think the whole thing is a precision turbo. so let me know.......

.43 is to small, your going to choke up top, your .63 my fit on the turbonetics (considering there both t04e's) but your going to have to spend an hour and test it out.

Actually I didn't confirm that his combination wouldn't work. He is speaking strickly of the A/R size of the turbo. You need to know wheel size so that you can determine if you can swap housings.

ok pharm i see what you mean now, but the ar size of the new turbo is bigger than my old turbo, the new one is going to be a AR .63, and the turbine of the new one is .48.

now the turbine(hot side) of the old turbo is .63, and the new one which im trying to get is .48, so still i have t see if the wheel would fit??

I used a .48 for a long time and it yielded me a good amount of low end power. But, I am pretty sure that it is ultimately the main reason I blew my motor too. If you were going to stay in low levels of boost, like no higher that 6psi, you would be ok with it I imagine. But, it's still a risk.

.63 is what I switched to. I'd say that's the way to go.
