Can you bolt on an 03 compressor housing and wheel to an 05+ turbo?

I have several turbos collecting at work and I was wondering if anyone has ever thought about this. I supposed I could easily try it but I wouldn't want to mess anything up.

I've got 2 stock compressor wheels sitting side by side and I was pretty surprised at the difference. I can see the 03 wheel has about a .040" larger inducer. I've heard the 13 blade turbine is more efficient also. Can we have the best of both worlds or did I just describe an 04 turbo?

It will have the same power because of the PCM via the MAP and MAF, but it would cost you more MPG

Nah it won't fit and the gains wouldn't be worth it if it did.

What I decribed is an 2004.25+ turbo. It has the same compressor wheel as the 03 and a 13 blade turbine like the 05+. Why there's so many different turbos I'll never know. I did have an 04 turbo once too but I gave the sucker away.

I am not sure. I will swap covers on my turbos tomorrow if I get a chance. All of my turbos have bolt on compressor housings.

Remember there are actually two different style 03 turbos. One has clamp plates for the compressor housing and the other is the normal looking bolt on style compressor housing. The two 03 housings are not interchangable. Perhaps it is easier just to say that they won't work but I don't know for sure, just what I was told.

I just recently put on 06 compressor housing on my 03 turbo... fit just fine. I just had to change out the compressor housing, backing plate, and the compressor wheel.

You might try that.
