Definately would be a job I'd love to take on, however, I just don't have the free time anymore.

Sonic MS will be doing my install, along with my new LSD. They have already done another members RB turbos, so atleast they have expierence and don't charge an arm & leg.

I have several housings being welded, and centers to send to balance still. Its going to be several weeks and I certainly hope I dont get stuck with a long shipping cycle on parts again otherwise that could make it longer. Trying my best to get this list behind me and move into the future of no longer being build to order.

Parts in bulk form have been ordered and recieved already. But getting them is not the end, it's only the beginning of a highly customized and tedious project.

Turbos came in yesterday! Man they look good, it's gonna kill me to have them laying around for another 15 days.

Got mine on thursday evening, now they are in

Probably 12-14h in the garage, a proper lift would have been nice.

Only a short drive so far with stock setting to run them in.
Will do a wheel alignment on monday as I changed some M3-parts in the front suspension.

You don't need a lift, just use the method I use...

Yes. You will simply have to replace your engine with a N54 and then they will work.
