Nope.  I have  a 5speed merkur turbo in storage, and the Merkur I jus
bought have the .63.  Also, I think I posted a rather lenghty thing on the
GN compressor a week or two ago.  Basically it was sayin if your gonna go
thru the effort of puttin together a custom turbo, why not just get a T4
compressor.  Look what every Honda turbo setup on the market comes with..A
T3/T4 hybrid.
