I would kill for an opportunity to drive your car again. It was so good that I'm really tempted to sell the Vette and build a replica.

If you need to get further up the full race food chain, ask to talk to Raffi. He's super helpful and thats who I always spoke to.

Getting praise from a LingenVette owner is not frequent.

Oh I know. It's funny, if you actually buy the right parts, car turns out great. If you cheapen out and buy 3rd world parts (*cough* koni sport), it sucks

Yes I do. I should have bought 3 pairs - they don't come in this color anymore. Orange is pretty much the best color ever.

Full-Race says they will have an RMA for me tomorrow.
However, the turbo won't arrive until mid-august

Options
free:
- Run N/A (no thanks, would rather park it)
- Install old T25 hotside (would need inconel studs and BOV at least...)

not-free:
- Buy a used EFR6258 -or- try to find it in stock somewhere
- Buy a EFR6758 (are these easier to find?)
- Use my Airwerks S246 that I have sitting here. It's T4 flange and 4.31" v-band outlet with no wastegate
- ????

If I can find an EFR 6258 in stock that's not part of the "sorry we didn't follow the recipe" batch, I'll buy it. And as long as it's not too retardedly overpriced.

I thought that the whole point of building a fast heavily modified turbo car was to have shiit break and then jerk around?

So here's the plan. I'm going to spend the next couple of days using my KGB connections scouting for an EFR6258 or possibly a 6758. If it doesn't happen (i.e. 99% chance) I'll install my old setup.

If anyone has any sources let me know. I has money. I already sent Savington a PM, maybe he can hook me up <3

I hate that begi 2pc retarded bolt downpipe. I won't have inconel studs. I won't track it. But ---- it's better than running N/A.

No, I meant you in regards to Fae's timetable.
