I will have to redesign the adaptation or create some other machining step on the CHRA to make it work- which would definitely be a setback. Lets hope for the best though

On another note, got a fever last night out of no where... was up to 102* and was burning up all night. I very rarely get sick, and this would be the absolute worst weekend to be bed ridden. I want my car back on the road worse than you guys do trust me! Thank goodness I feel about 50% better this morning, I think the worst is over with.

Ha, I would like to see a complicated turbo system install done by someone on a high dose of Xanax. They would probably forget they had upgraded turbos after they woke up the next morning, especially if there was some drinking involved!

If only you came out with these 2 months ago when I was too impatient to wait for anything! don't get me wrong, I'm very happy with my TiAL setup and it's running beautifully but if your kit ends up working well I might have to get a set eventually.

Hey Rob!

If someone were to send you a pair of OEM turbos... would you be willing to do the wastegate upgrade on them yet!

If so, for how much?

Yes, I will likely do that... but only after these get into production. As for cost Id assume it to be less than $300 for the full wastegate upgrade (which would include all new premium billet materials with revised design and install/welding). This will be standard with purchase of the complete turbo upgrade though.

PM me if you are seriously interested and are very likely to purchase provided the results are "favorable".

I will try my best to make the list, I know most of you guys who have been around for a while and will get you guys in there first. Well, assuming this all goes good!

I have 10 sets of cores I believe, so that will be enough to get it all started.

I think I know where at least one set of new turbos (from your current cores) are going.
btw, I bought an extra set of eBay turbos like 7 months ago LOL.
