Help..... I need a good 87 t/c IHI exhaust housing !!! Im having my oe turbo gone through and the rebuilder sent me photos of the exhaust housing with 4 cracks in it. He has none on the used shelf for me. I had installed a t3t4-50 trim on the car and did not realize the fabrication issues i was going to have. Different down elbow, take off the ram air scoops, waste gate actuator ect.ect. So I want to put the oe back on and either drive it or sell it. Can I just bolt on a t3 from the earlier t/c and use the factory parts if I can't find an exhaust housing for the ihi ??

Where are the cracks? Cracks, even big ones around the WG "hole" are pretty common, and dont cause any problems unless cracked thru to the outside of the housing.

A T3 from an earlier TC is nearly a bolt on with some mods to the compressor outlet.

I found a new Garrett t3 mustang turbo. I could not find a new rear housing for the IHI.
