Hi,

You can fit a Garrett T20/25 or equivalent size of another brand.

Will be good enough till about 12 PSI... however I do hope that you have access to a couple of good people to do the install as CARB turbo installs can quickly turn to nightmares.

Hi Psycho/ viper,

Where do we get these turbos in India? what the approx price?
Would you be able to install it on a MPFI Esteem?
What would be the overall expenditure?

Does anyone have a used esteem turbo for sale?
Even looking for a second hand automech exhaust for esteem.

You can get these turbos in Mumbai at K.S Motorsport and at Bangalore from Psycho (Keshav). For a used esteem Turbo, ask Psycho (I doubt he'll ever part with his, if he does, please lemme also know).
