stock 240 sx turbo question

I went to the junkyard today and found a 240sx with a perfect condition stock turbo.

Now my question is, is it possible to fit that onto a svt focus?

If so, what do I need in order for it to work properly?

If not, then why won't it work?

isnt the turbo really small

my engine builder had one out of a 240 that had a ton of shaft play, and that thing was soooo small

240sx's aren't turbo'd stock...the SR20DET motor (which I'm assuming this car had) is most definitely a swap. The 240 part of the name means 2.4L, KA24DE engine. The SR20DET is originally in the 180sx, 200sx, and S13,14,15 Silvias. Anyways, the stock turbo is a T25.

well it is a lot more work and money than just putting the turbo on there. if you can only afford a $50 turbo then i doubt you will be able to afford all that is involved in turbo a svtf properly
