When I email FP for this turbo I got this replay from Amber Stice ...
I was considering changing my broken GT30R with this the GT3065...


For starters I think you don't quite understand what our FP3065 turbo is
in comparison to standard Garrett GT ball bearing turbos. The FP3065
turbo uses the Garrett GT30 CHRA and compressor housing and mates up to
our Forced Performance turbine housing. This turbine housing has a
standard DSM 4 bolt inlet and uses a 2.5" V Band style outlet. This
turbine housing also has a wastegate mount directly on the turbine
housing for mounting a TiAL 44m V Band wastegate to it. Our FP30 Turbine
Housing only comes in a .70 A/R.

If you are wanting something similar but wanting to use the .82 turbine
housing, what you would be wanting to run would be the Garrett GT3082
turbo that you have the option of picking a .63 or a .82 turbine
housing. This turbo uses the same CHRA as our FP3065, but instead of
using our FP30 turbine housing, it uses the standard Garrett T3 style
turbine housings. Cost on the Garrett GT3082R Turbo is $XXXXX

In my opinion if you are looking for more power, I would go with the
Garrett GT3582R as the Garrett GT3082R or FP3065 would be more of a
lateral step power wise for you.

If you have any other questions, please let me know.

Thank you,
