Sure anything is possible... the GN turbo is the same as the Typhoon and Syclone turbos and uses a 3 bolt turbine housing. I suppose an adapter could be fabbed up as easily as a TO4 adapter could be made.

Those turbos hit reasonably early when powered by a 3.8, so you will have some lag. It wont be 6000 rpms tho. Wont spool as quick as a ct26, but you will get a good amount of power. I remember my friend had a GN 3.8T, and it was running 17 psi on that turbo. Very very fast. It flows.

I'm sure it would be worth a shot at least. Let us know the results please, hehe.

Any turbo is possible to mount to a supra... its just all about performance, how much machine work you are willing to do, and how much time you are willing to invest into the whole project.

I bolted on a turbo from a 99' Dodge ram Cummins Diesel engine....

Works great.

Boosts from about 2500-3000rpm and from what I have been told by Holset engineers, it can make up to 500+ hp.
Not to mention... IT WAS CHEAP!
