Serious, filled police report last night. If you see any EFR Turbos for sale in northern IL area LMK asap. Good news I have the serial number, and many pictures of the turbo and the exhaust. Looks like SP is just going to have to do the turbo back exhaust when they finish the build. Motors being finished this week, and it's getting shipped to Sound Performance.

No, nothing was taken from Sound Performance! lol, just to make that clear. My buddies shop where my car's at now is where the stuff was taken. Didn't touch the tools, my Sparco seats that where out of the car, or anything else. Just snatched turbo and exhaust.


Min that turbo is HOUGE

http://www.full-race.com/store/turbo...670-turbo.html seems better fit, no?

Ok, was going to say a big shop like SP I'd think would be a bit more protected, but that BLOWS. Lots of other stuff taken or did they target your stuff? Isn't exactly a market for miata parts that unique in the area... it'll show up.

Yo brohams, transmission is finished $1200 later after new bearings, tools, tax, sealz. One less thing to worry about, now I am contemplating what turboz to get. I would get a BORG but that bish is too big I think and won't fit.

PTE 6262 twin scrolls might fit the bill?

Twinscrolls means twin EWG's. If borg wont' fit then will two wastegates? I looked at the 6262 for my 2.5, ended up going with the 5858 vband.

My manifold has been done awhile, I was talking about the compressor housing hitting the block or subframe because of it's width. 6262 is same size as my 5758 externally, smaller then my old EFR. WHen I said BORG I mean the S300SX with the EFR compressor billet wheel.

Here is the Borg I want..

Sick poem incoming:



Tim you went too small

Better it's too big than too small

That's what she said

Not always true :|

Jason looking at your manifold I think that there is a decent chance the s300 will not fit. Actually who knows. My QSV makes fitament even more difficult. Maybe Full Race would be willing to do a "if it fits" return/exchange policy with you?

Look at these pics of my manifold and then look at yours.





If you have your manifold in your hands, measure the distance from the inner edge of the turbine flange to the head flange. Also measure the distance from the edge of the turbine flange to where the block would be.

I can use those measurements to tell for sure.

Last time I talked to Jason I believe all the hardware was done, it just needed to be wired and ECU installed and then tuned. I do know the car is in the Chicago area, and he is in Cali so things are a bit difficult.

BACK FROM THE FREAKING DEAD.....Okay, long story short it took FOREVER to get my car back from Aric like 2 years and I totally lost motivation to finish this project due to personal issues, moving to the west coast and all that. It looks like the car will be going to Sound Performance within the next 6-8 weeks to finish everything. To be honest since my turbo and all that was stolen, I don't even know what turbo is on the car now. It's a billet PTE and it's big with a twin scroll T4 on the back-end about as far as I can tell. I plan on finishing it, making a bad *** video, cleaning it and selling it, I want a GTR.

Pictures is how the car sits now, I have to finish all the wiring for the ECU/Flex fuel, fuel system, cold side piping, exhaust routing, and a few other things.

Well I have a dump tube that's made, it's a tight fit but out of the hood doesn't sound like a half bad idea...

You should give failflora a call and challenge him to see who can get their car going the soonest.
