At the end of the day.... I sell hybrid turbos. And if you want to prove a point, you normally have to do it yourself ;)
Anyone interested ?
External wastegate + dump tube
Inlet, downpipe ( and full exhaust if you are local and want it ). Oil/water lines.
I'll prob keep it. But if someone is interested, I would be willing to sell it...
If only this was a td05h....
Make it easy for me and tell me what lines you used for water/oil so I can eventually go 16g.
So the "not for sale" turbo is now for sale?

Another forum member was building a super interesting TD05 based setup using an EVO turbo. Even I was interested. But the packaging of the evo turbo spinning backwards, and the general cost the titanium turbine wheel made it a bit much for me. But a really cool setup. Not sure where he went. But all his rotating parts were larger and heavier over the TD04HL parts ( because it's a larger bearing center section and all ). But after what I've learned with this turbo, I'm happy I went the TD04HL route over the TD05. And if anything, a more restrictive, yet faster spooling turbine is what I'd like, not a much larger TD05 turbine. And the compressor wheel in this turbo is the size of a TD05H-18G. It's reasonably large for a TD05. In a TD04HL, it's a beast. Besides the 9-blade turbine, I wouldn't change anything about this turbo at all. And it's pretty clear, the turbine in it, is not hurting anything but feelings.
Good points there, it's just SO easy to source a drop in 16g (big/small, Evo8/9/10, any of the FP variants) for dirt cheap I don't see the point, especially when I'm thinking more camshaft and RPM. I'd give up a few hundred RPM of spool for the development /durability that's happened with the td05h stuff compared to the td04l's. Not to mention the housing options.
It's a pretty active DSM market in my area, too.
I know some folks in the Volvo world that had good results with the evo turbos. Granted, on the old redblock cars you have enough engine bay space to build a J-pipe and just weld the weird Evo exhaust flange on. Like SS said, the amount of work for our application may not be worth it.
The Volvo guys have 2.3L and 2.5L's to play with. The 1.6L just isn't going to spool a turbo like they will.
For RPM this is your turbo, lol. I mean.... if your looking for more than 360-370whp ( maybe 380whp ), then you prob should be looking at a DHM Garrett kit.
I'm not really trying to sell this, but if someone wanted it, I would sell it. If you look at the pages of this Thread, it wasn't done over a weekend.
Like I said, I was all about that ti-turbine wheel and all that, but after now having experience with this.... sorry.... no way I'd run a TD05 on this car. And that's not me trying to sell this... By the name of the thread, it was never built to be something I sold. But that's just my honest opinion.
The TD04HL does have housing options. But these are the biggest ones. So you
Could only go smaller, not bigger. But like I said, if you want more than 360whp, you should prob be looking at a Gen2 GTX2860 or GTX2867.
No durability issues with TD04's. The new Porsche Macan uses twin TD04HL turbos on its V6.
Now.... run a TD04-13G on a 7500rpm DSM 2.0L and yea.... your kind of asking a lot lol. With a 18G compressor wheel, the Rpms drop drastically and reliability actually improves despite the heavier comp wheel.
