Ok I have a 97 Gs-t And i currently have the stock t-25, Now i have a t-28 ball bearing and i'm thinking of changing these around. What Will I need To throw in the t-28. And Will I feel a difference, it's a 60 trim Garrett T-28 Single Ball Bearing. So please Someone guide me through so I can drop in the T-28. What Do I need And Where Can I Get It From. Thanks

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.

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....

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

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....

Thank you, that is the exact point I was trying to make.
As for the swap question, you do not need to remove the coolant. There are two coolant lines (feed and return) and two oil lines. Disconnect those, drop the DP, remove your bolts, rotate turbo counter clockwise and it should drop out.
(It's not as easy as it sounds in print, you kinda have to be a professional turbo-wiggler to do this quickly.):D

Lots of searching buddy.... 4 bolts in the exhaust manifold, couple of coolant lines, one hard water pipe, and the one that goes to the oil pan....

Step 1.) Sell your car, since you have more money than brains.
Step 2.) Go to Wal-Mart and go find the bicycles
Step 3.) Try to figure out how to buy one, I hear it's complicated.
