I recently installed a rebuilt t-03 turbo from a TC in my Dodge Neon. Please no flames for the non TC post. Any info regarding what year TC this turbo was installed on or where I might find these fittings would be much appreciated. The measurement at the bearing housing is 16mm for the water jacket inlet.
Thanx,
Mel

The T-3s were installed on the 83-86 TCs. 87-88 used an IHI turbo. Probably any turbo shop could get the fittings. I got fittings at a hardware store that kind of carries everything. Look in the phone book or the back of performance mags for turbo shops.

The water jacket fittings arent anything special... just standard NPT pipe fittings. I forget exactly what size, but I think they are 5/16 NPT. When I switched the turbo on my 88 TC from an IHI to a T3, I just got fittings from the local hardware store.
