When I went down to St George last night, my dad was down visiting. So when I was grabbing the box out of the car he asked what I picked up.

I made him open the box...

I haven't seen my pops laugh that hard in a long time, good work Monk.

Interesting to see what pops up in your suggested items after that search, Adam.

Monk that's a work of art.

Ed asked me to take some measurements for him. Let me know if you want more.

Pretty similar in size with my efr being vband!

So judging from that photo, am I correct to say that the distance from the center of the turbine inlet to the back edge of the turbine outlet is 1 5/8"?

I hope it does and I hope it doesn't. I want him to have an EFR but they are also pricy turbos, and he has a pretty damn good 2871.

Haven't measured mine yet. The way things are going right now in order to stay iin budget (yes, I DO have a budget I'm keeping to) I'll keep the 2871 for now.

We shall see though... Still gonna take some measurements.

Good to know for when it is in budget. I too once had a budget. It was like playing tug of war with a fat man who wanted the cake being held out of his reach, though. :(

Yeah.

If someone wants to buy my FCM Bilsteins then it'd be in budget now. But I'm kinda hoping the timing lines up for me to buy a nice little NA and throw those on it.

I knew I should have left the hyphen in.

ED-DD.

Edit: ED. As in Ed. As in Turbofan. He has automotive ADD. He needs to build his car and drive the snot out of it this year, then boost it next year.
