Lol.....

One happy bunny now, lol....

Things are moving forward.... Only because i cant wait. Bodywork is due to be done after wedding... And with the turbo and other small mods sat here next to me... Ive finally decided to get it done first....... Thank to the arrival of me Japspeed screamer.... Thanks Paul ( has a knack of ringing me at awkward times, this time it was when i was talking the huskie for a jog... Couldnt get me breath back... lol :rofl: )



In all excitement, i was tightening the nuts on to the studs and the washer kind of sunk into the gap... Only a tiny bit... But it caused the top stud to bend a little... Seems fine and tight as a ducks ass so just want to ask you guys if i should swap it or keep it on...

Pics not great but spot the bent one out :)



:angel: :bounce:

yes mate, but i would rather they be that way than too small, it helps you get it fitted right so that the wastegate penny does not foul

Did your turbo originally have a backplate on there with a single exhaust aperture on it? The one I got form Conceptua did and I got a custom elbow included with it, but I got to wondering if the seperate dump pipe setup, like you have there would be a better option. Just wasn't sure if it was do-able with this specific turbo, but seeing that pic got me thinking it might. Can you recall if it was the exact same one we bought?

Nah, was over 90 days so can't get to it now on ebay. Took the turbo out the box to have a look and the back section does unbolt, but the actuator arms goes into it, so I don't think it's possible. I think you got the turbo that was one better than what I have.

Mine??

Mine is a standard gtst turbo that has had the housing machined to allow some bigger garret internals. Great quality.....
I assume Marks is the same??? Definately not xspower... We are not that stupid.... :) lol
