TD15 18g \ R34 GTT rebuild
Initially I bought an R34 GTT turbo with the intention of getting it rebuilt. Then the opportunity came up
and I got hold of a TD05 18g which came off an RB25 engine, it also came with the turbo elbow welded on and
a downpipe. The TD05 18g due to its size and steel internals spools up rapidly and can hold up to 1.6 bar.
