  1. This is far more efficient - great idea
  2. Hmm, OK cheers! So I think what should happen here is @Andy_Mac should purchase both the S257 and the EFR 7670 and back to back test them for us. Then we can figure out how many $ per reduced RPM spool time the EFR is worth 🤣
  3. On the Full Race site they list the S257 as same wheels as the EFR "57mm Forged-Milled EFR7670 compressor wheel, optimized aerodynamics" and "Inconel 70mm turbine wheel, same blade shape as EFR7670" but then the EFR7670 says "BW utilizes their 70mm Gamma-Ti turbine wheel" so I don't know if they are different or the same? Don't mean to hijack your thread @Andy_Mac 😅
  4. Nice man - I ordered same bits and skipped the bolts and washers at that price haha. I have same sump too and it just came with the cork gasket - I'm sure they'd make you one up.
  5. Haha nice one! I think PBMS do a cork sump gasket - I haven't had mine leak yet so that could be a go. Genuine gaskets are similar price I believe but the bolts and bolt washers are hugely expensive.
  6. Such good value R&D plus the BOV, BCS and IWG - but more than double the price 😅 Could run a secondary oil cooler just for the turbo maybe?
  7. This is my understanding too.
  8. If it's a 2.5L maybe the Borgwarner S200SX-E could be an option? There are two variants available on NZ Performance and the one is basically the EFR 7670 w/o the BOV and stuff - the compressor housing even has the speed port machining done if you wanted to use it. There's a good write up on Full Race about them and they are more than half the price of the EFR series equivalent. Plus, you can purchase the turbine housing of your preference from NZ Performance too for a few hundred bucks. Sorry for not complying with the existing selections haha! PS: The 200SX-E is even more compact that the EFR series too
  9. Honestly, just pull a cover and save yourself the hassle of getting it wrong. Even Winger couldn't tell me what gasket I needed when I gave them my plate number so it's easier to just take it in and match it.
  10. +1 for above comment. You can also purchase complete engine gasket kits from a range of suppliers. Depends what you want to replace though
  11. I have a set in Auckland second hand
  12. Is there monthly meet happening tonight?
  13. Can you just compare the pin-puts of a v1-2 Link and a V7 Link from the Link website? Wouldn't that give you all the info you need?
  14. OK - how about a lift kit for a '94 Suzuki Escudo?
