I'm going to park it. Maybe run N/A but don't want to.

Garrett offer is long gone and frankly I still love this damn thing.

I think that's just diff noise to be honest. Its inaudible (at least to me) IRL but the camera picks it up really well.

I think to complete the package my avatar needs to be an empty turbine housing.

So I've been driving a bit as-is. Meaning all the turbo stuff minus the turbo wheel.

WOW IT'S FUСKING SLOW

I datalogged for kicks and apparently I hit a whooping 80-85kPa in 2nd at redline. It quite a bit less than the 250kPa I was hitting before....

Also THIS turbo was originally bought from Himni racing, not Full Race, like first one. I left them a voicemail today without a response. Tomorrow, I look forward to telling them the story of my life. Will updatezzz!

Simply driving around it's not too bad. Just every time I go WOT, I give up 3 seconds later because, honestly, what's the point????

The point is to keep from getting run over by the minivan-driving soccer mom behind you.
