It's a direct bolt on... And yes you will feel a difference, now prepare to get flamed for not searching

DIRECT bolt on buddy. Do some research, FP uses junk t25 housings to build their t28 turbos, I am not sure if fresh ones come with the same housings.

Re: Garrett T-28 Ball bearing Turbo

What he meant is that an FP t28 is a t25 shell with upgraded internals, so on a 2g is a direct bolt on, it would be like putting the same turbo, but once it spools up, you will get massive whiplash, kinda like a big 16g....

Re: Garrett T-28 Ball bearing Turbo

Exactly, sorry for the lack of explanation. The bigT-28 is the 16G for us 2g owners.

I wouldn't go as far as comparing a 16g to a t-28.

In respect to his analogy, I would say his comparison is fairly correct. The T-28 is what a 16G would be to a 14b. I think all he was saying is that the turbo is the 2g replacement that uses the same basic housing, just different internals.

But, French, your correct, they are not similar. Just the "roots" of the two different setups are similar, as they are both stock turbos "modded" to be bigger.

The 16G is still bigger than the T-28, though, if I'm not mistaken....

Re: Garrett T-28 Ball bearing Turbo

^Replacement wise... Yeah sure.

But power and potential wise, an e316g will rape a t28 from the rear any day of the year.
