!!The best option to replace my old turbo!!

At cold start the car is smoking little oil but it is increasing and have oil in the piping.
I am thinking in rebuild my turbo or buy a new turbo as a first option.

I have poor specs about my turbo, is a T3 apparently turbonetics brand
(aparently because i do not know if it is a mix of some turbos),
48 A/R, oil cooled, 4 Bolt exhaust side, the core is attached to the compressor plate.

I would want to know what is my best choice of turbo that i need
with no modifications to my tuning (I have a Diablo Chipmaster Revolution),
i mean if i can buy a turbo with specs similars (wich ones? =( ) like my old
turbo or maybe do a minimum upgrade without sacrificing my actual tuning.


Pictures:



Compressor is identical to this:



Core/Plate:



Thank you guys

I thought you had the 5557?

A lot of the srt4 guys run the 5431e and they love it. Fast spool and makes great power.

good choice. particularly a new turbo wont affect your tune that much, but with that being said when you install a new one just make sure you gots a datalog going at the same time and watch the afr gage when you do a pull for tom to look over. in 3rd gear he likes to see the numbers never go above 11.5
