The other issue is - how many CURRENT results have you seen from RBs? I can't...

I would go MMP, GCs, or Pure S2. If you go Pure, get the high-flows. I would avoid RB just because of...

I'd be very concerned if there was a big enough scratch on the crank that you could feel. Let us know how it turns out.

Re-work - becomes less of a concern if you provide parts and have appropriate markup. If the customer provides the parts - no warranty on it. If it needs to come back up - customer pays again.

The front turbo and rear turbo primary wideband o2s are the same other than the length of cord and color of sheathing. I've replaced mine with the cheaper one without issue.
