Need help with aftermarket TURBO "not a supercharger"
I acquired this turbo a while back and would like to install this on my 2008 RXP X but have no idea where to start. Does anyone recognize this turbo.
To get it running I believe I will have to get bigger injectors, fuel regulator, aluminum intake etc.
Heck I may have to redesign the whole thing from the ground up.
Any help would be appreciated.

PS this is a 2012 260 engine I just rebuilt. 2008 255 is a little different.

Welcome to the GH
turbo should have a tag on it , looks like a garrett
the biggest problem I see is the turbo sets in the waterbox location
that is too low and water can get into the turbo ( very bad)
and you will need a oil pump to pump the oil back up into the motor
that hose running uphill will not work
why did they leave out the intercooler?
there is a lot of hot parts exposed, your hull is going to be a oven
what is going to hold up the turbo, that rope may not work in the hull
what are your fuel and ecu plans?

Flip it so that the turbo sits up and see how it turns out there's no way that turbo can sit like that oil drain issues also it will be at the water line as soon as you shut it off water will surge to the back housing not good when you flip it you will need to clock the turbo towards the intake manifold and make sure the oil drain is facing straight down

Fuel and ecu plans are unknown at this time, just want to get a functioning unit at this point.
Looks like I'll have to redesign this thing from the ground up.

Two things wrong with that is the turbo sets so far back it will interfere with the hull and two the way the water connections are set up it looks like a lot of air would be trapped inside the j pipe not giving full water circulation.
I'm going to scrap the "J" pipe design altogether and build something more efficient so the turbo can be mounted to the engine.

If your going to start again with a new "up" pipe, it is very easy to mount the turbo very close to the exhaust manifold, with a very short "up" pipe, no support is required.
The oil does not HAVE to drain into the SCer hole, there is another location. As far as protecting the turbo from water ingestion just make sure the down pipe comes up above the water line before it exits the ski.
IMO you want to get the weight as low as possible, the turbo is a big chunk of weight especially if the hot housing is water cooled so getting it down low helps with handling.
As I say, if you can come up with a design that effectively hangs the turbo straight off of the manifold, supporting it is not necessary. It also helps minimize lag...

i believe you have a the same setup like this one, might gives you an idea of how to mount things and run you pipes.
if you search on google "seadoo turbo kit"you see alot of pics of turbo kits and how they mount the turbo including turbo kits like you have
