DISCLAIMER....I know nothing about TURBOS....

I have a brand new Garrett Turbo lying around from a F-350 7.3L. Is there any use for this on a 3800?

I once asked this EXACT question and the unanimous answer was NO. The A/R ( 1.xx ) on the exhaust side was simply too much...we can't move it. That's what I was told anyways.

Not to hijack this thread but i understand you can't use a big turbo on our cars but what about a small turbo say from a sunbird gt 4cyl.

Because the displacement of our cars would spool those turbo's up too quickly. You may have good low end power, but you'd be choking up top. That's why guys with TT Mustangs use stock turbo's from Mitzu's, Chrysler's, GN's, etc because then each bank is pushing a turbo (2.5L x 2 = 5.0L roughly). And that 2.5L is a little on the big side of most OEM 4cyl turbo cars.
