T04e turbo

Is a t04e turbo worth putting in my e30 with the right modifications?

I moved your thread to the E30 forum. You had it in the E36 forum.

what model? there's different motors

325i = m20b25 - 168 hp - 130 trq/lb 325= m20b27 128 hp - 162 trq/lb 325E= m20b27 128 hp - 130 trq/lb

and 300 hp?? try shooting for maybe 200hp MOST.

im a college student as well and good luck with the price budgeting. a good turbo will cost you around 1k to 2k, and you will only make 40-60hp(correct me guys) depending on what you get.. add that up and youll get 200hp

+ you cant just force your car to take alot of pressure, and alot of modding is going to come in play. remapping, compression ratio (math), and mixture etc etc etc etc. my advice i say dont turbo at all, motor is old and will need to be rebuilt and cleaned, new valves, springs, machined head, pistons, crank, new bearings etc etc. turbo is the last thing you want to do for the car.
