So I'm at work, doing my usual thing (which is to say...nothing) and reading my morning MT.net. Saw some threads about turbo choices and started to question my plans for some upcoming upgrades.
I wanted to price some things out, so I navigated over to ebay and started searching. First I looked at some T3/T4 hybrids. Cheap, but I'm starting to question whether or not that is "too big" for my 1.6. I want a bigger turbo, but I also want it to spool before 5k.
This is where my trouble began.
I decided to look at some t2 flanged turbos. Stan of SKmetalworks will be fabricating my new exhaust mani here pretty soon, and I know that he has some extra t2 turbos laying around for mock-up purposes. Also, I was having no luck finding exactly what I wanted in a t3 footprint (large compressor, .48ar exhaust,5 bolt outlet.) So, after reading djp0623's thread, I typed in :"gt28" and I searched by price+shipping = cheapest.
This is what ebay pulls up:
RIGHT as the ******* receptionist is dropping off the paper.
Luckily, she is pretty cool and just kind of chuckled when I WTF'd and she saw what I was looking at... instead of threatening to report me to HR.
Seriously though...A ******* banana hammock? God damnit.
