      16t compressor cover/wheels on 14t?

      I'm sure it's been done, I cant seem to find anything on Google though.

      So the question at hand is, can I put the wheels and 16t compressor cover on my stock 14t chra?

      Yes, I know the 14t is a flat back. Yes I'm aware the 16t is a superback. It seems though looking at the turbo labs rebuild kit that they use the same size bearing cover and TL included one of each style. What I'm uncertain of is, do they use the same chra? J-body forums claims they do and both being td04 I want to say that is correct, I'm not 100% though...

      14t is a superback turbo, the g series td04s are flat back. If they have the same turbine shaft bore size it will work with machining of the compressor cover.

      Looks like the 14t has a inducer and exducer of 39.5 and 51mm with a bore of 5mm

      The 16t has a inducer and exducer of 43.4 and 56mm with a bore of 5mm

      The Chra would need to be machined to 56mm and the compressor cover machined to fit the 43.4mm

      So it will work with modification. If you want to do this talk to turbo lab America about it. They will get the work done for you at a great price. I would recommend a billet wheel as well if you decided to do it. They do great work

      Thanks scott. I thought that was the case. Back to the drawing board lol. I was thinking I could strip the cover and wheels from this 16t I have, utilizing the 14t chra without having to machine anything. Wouls keep me from having to clock/punch our freeze plugs and I could sell the 16t chra and exhaust housing...

      I suppose it could be done relatively cheap...should take much more than an hour of labor to machine out the housing and cover..I have a local machine shop I've used in the past that I trust.
