has anyone run this turbo on a 1.8 ? Got one laying around and was wondering what kinda power could be made and if anyone knew anything about it ? same flanges as a t3 or t4 so hardware isn't hard to get.

Any disadvantages or advantages to running this setup ? I believe its .57 trim but not sure?

Greddy used it to make a kit for the MK4 GTI, but it really didn't sell all that well.

Find a WRX that wants it or an STI, shouldn't be hard to find one to grab it off your hands even locally.

Where exactly do you plan on finding a manifold that has a Audi head flange and a DSM turbo flange? You cant just mount that turbo to a standard T3 flange since the inlet is round.
