    a pure bolt on upgrade?

    Your best bet is sending it off and having your CT26 upgraded. Alot of people like the 57 trim or 60-1 upgrades.

    A Supra CT26. If you have an ST185 you'll want to use your exhaust housing though.

    I'm going to have to disagree with Facime and Alltracman.

    Your options depend on your budget.

    You can probably find a CT20b for about $500-600. It is a great turbo, I love mine.

    For a freshly rebuilt option with a warranty, the CT27 is a great turbo from ATSRacing.net. Cost is $800 after you send them in your core.

    I'd recommend one of those two for a basic but satisfying upgrade.

    From there, you can go for bigger kit, prices will range from $1000 (used) to $2500 new, with power levels getting you to almost any goal.

    he said bolt on...I gave him the only true bolt on (In my mind I was thinking unbolt one turbo, bolt on the other, ruling out manifolds, fuel system upgrades etc. to support the increased boost) upgrade option.
    and while that does then include a 20b, you didnt actually disagree with me since the 27 is exactly what I recommended, an upgraded 26.

    hehe...sort of. The modification of the hot side on a CT27 suits the larger compressor wheel much better than doing the comp wheel on it's own. Previously I had a 50 trim CT26 and was not overly impressed with the performance.

    Also to add, a rebuilt to your CT26 will cost more than finding a CT20b, so that's the route I'd go. It's an awesome turbo, I've enjoyed mine.

    Hey Chris do you have any comparison specs on the 20b vs the 26. (inducer/exducer, A/R, etc.) Also is that a direct bolt on to a 2nd gen twin scroll set up. (you know I just modded my 1G to take the 2G)

    Best bet for CT20b is mr2oc.com forums. Usually a few there.

    As for specs not handy, I'd have to dig to find them...but I think you'd only be able to find wheel size and not A/R info. Toyota never released that info afaik. But from dyno comparisons, there is a big difference between the two.

    Keep in mind buying a CT20B means you're buying a used turbo of unknown age and remaining life. I bought one off ebay and found that the "minimal shaft play" advertised was in fact 0.026", so I sent it back.
