well today I finished all the immediate work I planned.


- LS2/Truck coils installed, with cave-man 22 gauge sheet-metal bracket. It's crude but very strong
- Coils wired in full sequential
- Injector wiring re-did. No more Injector Dynamics clip thingys. Wired everything straight in
- Changed the CAS pigtail. Old one had a crack in the wire insulation, exposing wires. Most likely cause of sync errors I was having.
- Catch can installed. Sausage line team reporting in!
- Changed valve cover gasket because old one was leaking

Hope I didn't forget anything.

car still drives great
just N/A and burns oil on acceleration. Compressor wheel spins freely and has a tiny bit of play.

The failure was very uneventful, too. Just POOF and no boost. There was a bit of the rattle in the exhaust (turbine wheel making it's way out ) for the next like 50 miles (I had plans after autox) but I guess it found it's way out.

I drove like 70 miles since it fell off. I could hear it ratting around, finding it's way out of the exhaust. I checked the muffler and it's not there.

Wouldn't be surprised if it punctured someone's tires

Sounds, drives, acts like N/A. Gonna contact Full Race about replacement, because that's an epic fail defect.

I wonder if warranty is transferable, because you did buy the turbo second hand.

Yep he bought it from me. I gave him the original receipt and it is still like two weeks until a year passes. I couldn't locate the warranty sheet though, which would have the details about transferring. I can't imagine that he won't be given a replacement. It was clearly a defect if he just made 320 whp on the dyno, and completed a track day and some autox. Hopefully full race steps up and does the right thing.

I'll start a hotline. 1-800-sexy-efr

Called Full Race. Talked to one of their very sleepy guys (8:30AM in Phoenix). Sent them picture & video. Awaiting response.

I'm sure the the last thing they wanted to hear on monday morning is an unbreakable $1500 turbo breaking (that's still on warranty).
