      Like I can talk tho. Bu I'm so indecisive. My car would be done already if I could make up my mind about the fine details

              They are wonderfully simple. I just bought a unique one to go from focus st flange to 3 inch pipe. But I don't have the unique to Ford clamp, so I'll have to weld the v band adaptor to the exhaust housing

                Mike,
                To answer your original questions. No, the garrett lines are not the same as the VJ lines. You'll need to make all new lines.
                The garrett outlet flange is not the same bolt pattern as the VJ outlet. These are 2 completely different turbos and they share nothing in common (other than the fact that they are both turbochargers, lol).
                The problem with the adapter plate is that it drops the turbo down lower, so the drain is really hard to plumb. Also, the wastegate pod is going to hit your block, so that will all have to be customized as well. I have made all that stuff in the past.
                Driving for me is neither a right nor a privilege. Driving is my passion, as it was for the people who invented the automobile, the people who paved the first roads and the people who continue to improve the automobile. Please respect this passion.

                  So in your opinion what's my easiest solution?

                    A good solid vj14 with a 2" exhaust all the way back with a resonator (cherry bomb will work).
                    With your current setup, you are asking for trouble by upgrading your turbo. Your dumping too much effort into something that could be a reliable and fast car. Go wild on the next build.
                    On the high hp build I would use a custom turbo header built for the car. When you start using adapters and trying to fit a bigger turbo in that tight space, it's going to be unreliable. The more time the car spends broken, the less time you spend doing things correctly the first time. Don't get caught up in the "do this for now for a little more power" trap.
                    A stock b6t with a 2" exhaust will run great and haul ass for years. Enjoy it.

                      I liked the power level of the car when at the 15-16 psi mark. Im just afraid that the vj14 will not last at that level again.

                        Tweak has been running the same junkyard sourced vj14 (thanks Clay) for nearly 100k miles, at about 16psi (more or less depending on the temp and barometric pressure) with a stock tune and water methanol injection. The car has a good amount of track time and has been across country 4 times with the same turbo. It's daily driven by it's current owner and his wife. He occasionally tracks the car as well.

                          Believe it. Or you can do a vj14/11 hybrid that will for sure push the car down the road for a pittance of what you are looking to spend and it will bolt up.

                            Yeah, but that doesn't solve the issue of too small of a waste gate.

                              How? The vj14 i just put on it was at 15 psi and it didnt last. I think i saw 18 on the last oone one time. Im still going away from the vj14 tho! Just want to get something now that i can still work with later on. I still plan to swap to a g series. Still gonna get a custom mani made. Still looking at a custom intake. Gonna make the car how i want it but stuff takes time. Lots of projects at the house besides just this car to worry about.

                                After 12 psi the 14 just blows hot air...trouble over that.
