    I acquired this turbo years ago for some project but the air in and out look too small for the aircleaner.
    It says GT 2260V
    on the alloy is .61 M53

    On the steel side Garrett 711099 56.1

    Any thoughts welcome.

    OK I cant get another rear mount manifold so I will go with a top mount and pipe it back.
    Now does this VNT turbo just work out of the box as it were, or do I have to mess about adjusting it.
    It doesnt get a mention any more. Perhaps I would be better with a HX30 or TDO4hl-19T as mentioned in the other thread.
    Thoughts?

    Well these manifolds are not going to work. I am going to have to fabricate one with the turbo flange on the end.
    This 2260V has the exhaust housing wrong for the oil feed so I will have to clock it.
    Read up, easy, loosen 6 bolts and rotate. not easy, remove 6 bolts and look inside there is a pin locating the housing next to a finger that plays with the vanes.
    Seems I cant rotate it unless the ring with vanes rotates as well.
    Any ideas or has anyone done this?

    I rotated mine, you just have to rotate the vanes as well from memory. Also i think i removed that tiny little pin. Was awhile ago, but definitely rotated it to suit

    Can be done. But an absolute PITA

    The outer ring that rotates the vanes has a single inner groove for the control arm, pop this ring off clock it to where you want. Measure and re drill for the locating dowel (if it has one) refit. Easier said than done! (GT2256V so should be similar)

    6 bolts and simply rotate is the intake, or exhaust on a non VNT.

    Did all that OK, then went to bolt back up and I cant rotate the impeller, pulled it back off and still cant. I cant remember if it spun freely before or not as its been a few years since I bought. Gave up on it for a bit and its still in the vice. Might have to take it to a turbo guy as I cant see why it wont turn.

    Yep, you and Steve have convinced me.
    I better get onto the bloke making my stainless manifold to change the flange from T2 to T3

    I like the way the wastegate actuator is only attached one end. Makes it easier clocking, compared to the Garret.
    And the Gt2260V with the vacuum actuator starts to get complicated. OK for you but hard for me.
