Sounds like a personal problem if you can't spend 6 hours with dudes without sucking anyone's dick

Bryce's replacement turbo arrived today. I was planning on installing it tonight and driving the car a bit.

However, I forgot that turbine housing bolt holes have to be drilled out to 10mm for BALLER INCONEL STUDS. Well, apparently the housing is made out of unobtanium stainless steel so all my drill bits failed miserably. I ended up basically grinding the holes bigger with a dremel and a fancy tungusten bit. And a hand file. Took only like 3 hours, sigh...

I got everything ready to be installed (rotated turbo, put all the lines in, made sure it seats well with the flange, etc. Installed locking hardware. And then it started to rain.... I really don't want to jack a car up in the rain and then drive 20psi on wet roads. No thanks. And I should mention that it's 3am.

So tomorrow I'll finish it.
As it sits

Except pretty much every event in Texas (tx2k12, texas mile) rapes Unlim 500. Sure the Russians drive a bunch of expensive cars - but maybe 2 of them are actually built by Russians.

Oh I never said anything about building them on their own
Its mostly filthy rich "new" Russians that wrote a check and received a fully built *insert exotic here*

Still though, 300whp aint what it used to be, here and there :(

Stainless is a pig to work with for sure, especially if it tends to work harden.
For that type of work I use a round file (tang cut off) in a hand drill to save time and energy.

I used this bit (Dremel 9901 Tungsten Carbide Cutter) -


Used a file too and it worked for 3 out of 4 holes. The last hole has maybe 2cm of space before file hits the casing. Dremel bit is a little bit quicker.

I agree that blind holes are a pain with any tool

In general I find hand drills are easier to hold and have a lot more power so you can really crank down on the work piece and get things done

Car is idling as I type this. Burning off the production oils and whatever off the turbonator. I'mma warm it up, let it cool down a bit, then warm it up again, then drive in an hour or so.

It feels good just watching it idle without smoke out of the tailpipe.
