View Full Version : m24 turbo...

Alright guys, heres something interesting...

I bought a 98 a4 1.8tqm with 137k on it, 2 weeks ago dirt cheap...$2,500. it came with a big turbo, test pipe, and full apr exhaust. the car is in really good condition now after doing a shit load of body work...i bought the car as a project car so i was prepared for alot of bumps in the road with it. [wrench]

anyway...i got curious about the turbo and took out the air box to check it out and saw that is said "garrett m24" on it. i looked for some info on the m24 turbo and didnt find much. The turbo has been on the car for less then 20k miles. it spools and sounds really nice. i do not have an upgraded ecu or injectors in the car yet (the previous owner just slapped on a turbo and exhaust and thats about it)

Well what i would like to know is if anyone knows more about the m24 turbo and if i got an upgraded ecu and injectors would i need to get an ecu and injectors for lets say a t28 for example? or do i have to get something custom or just a regular giac or something?

if anyone can tell me something helpful that would be greatly appreciated. thanks everyone!
