find out what the a/r trim is on it and what exhaust housing it's based on and that will give you a close idea. finding a compressor map and plotting it out would be an even better idea. If it's a T3 housing or smaller it can DEFINITELY work on the svt, just the a/r is what will tell you how efficiently. if it's like a T4 or larger, it's going to lag a lot.

Diesel?? 3.5L is gas, and it uses 2 turbos, effectively 1.75L per turbo, with the mandate of no lag, probably resulting in a WAY too small turbo for a 2.0L SVT motor...

if its a single turbo off a 3.5 ecoboost its a gt15. kinda undersized for anything but building a nasty bike. not really worth it for a svt

If this is in fact a gt15, I want to buy one for my bike build if it's truly $170....the site listed is Romanian.....so I am skeptical that it would truly be $170 USD.....it's probably some other currency that translates to much more money in USD.

EDIT:

some research yeilds that this is a "K0CG" and here retails for $880 plus $150 core charge.

From working a a ford dealer. I can't see a ford turbo retailing at anywhere close to 170 bucks. And as stated the turbos in the v6 ecoboost engines are tiny little guys. I have one off a SHO Taurus on my tool box at work. It would spool easy but probably max out before the potential of the car is reached.

It wasnt from a retailer, got a buddy in a manufacturing plant and the managed to get some from there (didnt ask how thou lol).

after reading all this I decided it wasnt worth the hassle, and will move to look for a bigger turbo.
