Hey guys,

Are all the v-spec turbos steel exhaust wheels. I am looking at purchasing some and this is what the seller is saying.

Thanks

R32 & R33 v-spec turbos = ceramic.

I know the R34s are different, but without doing a search I cant say what is different, it might just be the bearings not the blades.

Best way to tell if a turbo has been upgraded to steel blades is to look at the shape of the nut on the exhaust wheel - do a searh to see the different shapes for ceramic and steel.

Done a search for you because im good like that..

R34 turbos are also ceramic, but can run slightly higher boost because they have better bearings.

Steel internal = triangular nut on rear wheel, ceramic internal = star shaped nut on rear wheel.

R32, R33 and R34 are all ceramic. The R34 is said to be stronger. And the R34 turbo's are ballbearing, the others not.

R32 and R33 can be used at 1b savely. The R34 1.2/1.3 bar max.
