is this the turbo that bolts up "IHI Warner turbo off of an intercooled 88' Turbo T-bird" or is there a turbo that is a bolt on upgrade?

The turbo doesn't 'bolt up'.

The compresser housing and wheel from the T-bird turbo will replace your stock turbo's housing and wheel.

Yes, that should be the correct turbocharger though. Make sure it doesn't have the funky bent compresser housing though.

How the hell do you figure that if you flow more exhaust, it will cause a turbo to explode?

The only thing that could, in reality, happen is his cat would
A. Meltdown, and/or clog, or
B. Cause so much backpressure the car would not run, ala sticking crap in the tail pipe.

Both of those two realities would happen way before his turbo even reaches any kind of super-heated state enough for it to cause meltdown/explosion.

the lack of an escape route for said higher flow/mass of pressure/exhaust gas=a rise in exhaust side temperature of the turbo. you know how restricted the exhaust side of the ihi turbo is anyways, now combine that with an EVEN HIGHER amount of spent exhaust trying to push it's way out a stock downpipe, it's a recipe for disaster, one of which I know firsthand, EGT temps were out of control causing a meltdown
