ive been NA for a loong time now and most of you have seen my car before.

Sensitive content, not recommended for those under 18 Show Content



i just need a few more mandrel bends to be safe I plan on using my old CAI as my cold side plumbing if i cant find more 2.5" bends i might just go with some PVC on some of the cold side lol

so far 400 bucks not bad :) if anyone has a welder and a spare block I can use to mock stuff up on around NH would be great :)

all parts going on this car

Start saving to replace that turbo now, or get one that will last before you put it all together.

this one will be fine :) im going to run a restrictor so the seals hold

I have a friend who used (and is still using) for 20,000 miles with no issues

thanks for the kind works guys, hope i can get rocking on the build in a week or so
also a quick question i need to clock the turbo so it faces the "right" way you see any issues with that? turbo to block clearance ect?

So he got the 1 in 10 that lasts, how lucky do you feel then? It's not the oil seals that fail on those turbos, it's the bearings.

To clock it you loosen the bolts and move the housings where you need them. Make sure the oil drain on the center housing is pointed straight down.

Worst comes to worst you can get a rebuild kit (garret internals) off of ebay for under a bill and rebuild that turbo if / when it goes.

If your going to eventually get ectune why even bother with crome pro? Just use crome free and freelog and save the 149 dollars.

My ebay turbo with function 7 .060 restrictor has been fine for going on a little over a year now and maybe 10k plus so I wouldnt worry about it for now.Make sure you get a dump tube made.

i hope you got that kit already made to work around the fogs, or your going to have to pull them out. but it looks good so far. egay turbo or not, boost is still boost, as long as the fucker does its job. GL
