  1. That sounds pretty good, but seems like Steve March would do similar and built form an old turbo would be cheaper since you already have the core.
  2. Classic cover and they have good cover for modifications. Had some delays with their claims subcontractors but job got gone. I’d still be going classic cover again.
  3. Yes 48 or 49 can never remember which ever is the twin scroll. it has too much play or has over boosted. Only good for parts. previous owner had external wastegate and it was abused.
  4. I have a spare v11 turbo for parts if that helps build a hybrid. the exhaust side is twinscroll but some insides maybe good.
  5. But dont you want a 300kw rated turbo so you aren’t pushing it and keeping it running in a nice efficient zone so it doesn’t heat up.
  6. PBMS did have a drop in TD05/06 single scroll for around 300kw.
  7. What is the engine built like? even that spike to 25 psi in the graph @boon posted may have to be tuned out to keep your engine happy. I have a feeling you’ll end up with 20 psi max and just less of a fall off since the turbo won’t choke. While that sounds and looks good on paper, it doesnt always feel great when driving. I’ve tried that and it was more like the Audi RS4 etc or big non turbo v8. you start to get that initial surge then it sort of just keeps pulling. Not so much kick of thrown back into the seat. Basically it be exactly the same feel as
  8. Partsouq.com cheap genuine and fast shipping. just enter your vin chassis code and it’ll tell you what it’s. I have a spare set of MSL head gaskets from a full kit. they are for 2007 so not sure if they fit, though someone here could tell you.
  9. Pretty sure they are 4”, next time I see the car I’ll measure them. they aren’t small that’s for sure.
  10. Ok it’s not tomei it’s this greddy one. https://forums.nasioc.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2432322
  11. Yes whole black section under the curved lip. Lip still there so it’s not flapping around. There is a plastic tray between the bumper and boot floor as well to keep it stable. Yes it is loud. Still not sure how much is pitch stop drone and exhaust. Was nice before pitch stop went in. still I’d prefer a bigger exhaust for the new engine. So it needs to come out anyway.
  12. Nah it’s looks factory except bigger and titanium. There was a single exit version I think. looks awesome especially with my modified rear bumper. my bumper is really high and ends just below the boot floor so about 10cm higher than stock. you can see the muffler and sway bar reinforcements from the back..
  13. i have the tomei titanium cat back but it’s factory quad 10cm tips. don’t think It will last with new turbo and anti lag. It has glass mat in it i think. i want a full 3” single pipe to single tip. No fancy just free flowing and quiet. Need a custom down pipe anyway.
  14. I think I’ll order some intake spacers for it today. haven’t seen my car in near 2 months. Hopefully back Thursday looking a bit fresher. still need a facelift bumper as I really don’t like the early one. Though may pull the slots and plate over them. then time for the single exit rally style adrenalinR exhaust and sell off the quad tip cat back titanium one.
