BP26 is still best. Andrew just said stock is acceptable.

Right. Yes. That's my point - "acceptable" is different from "don't do this, it's bad."

Edit: we should move any further discussion of head gaskets and reroutes to any of the several relevant threads on this board, and quit cluttering up the turbo kit thread.

I have run lots of track hours on stock BP6Ds with reroutes. They do not explode. It is much better if you swap the head gasket, and if you're going to do a reroute, I recommend you swap the head gasket. Your car is not going to explode if you DON'T swap the gasket, but you will not get the full benefit of doing a reroute.

No more reroute chat in my turbo thread, please. Start a new thread if you want to talk about reroutes and BP6Ds.

Have not been back to the dyno. Downpipe fitment and track testing has taken priority over the last few weeks.

All pending 6258 orders will go out Monday. Some 6758s will go out as well, but not all - I am still waiting on a few turbos from BW.

More details on manifold ETA, downpipes, and EFR-specific inconel studs next week.

Anthony, if you are willing to say, what were the cams set at for the dyno pulls. Wondering if you rolled the exhaust any.
Also, should I be watching for a turbo in the mail?

100% internally stock VVT motor, so stock cam timing. Your turbo went out with UPS on Monday, check your account for a tracking number.

My name is Andrew, BTW

Sorry Andrew, I realized name error after I posted. Long days here. The account showed as backordered so I thought I would ask. I will look at it again.
Thanks

Pre-orders are officially closed. Thanks to everyone for supporting this project.

If you are a pre-order customer or a group buy customer, you have an email in your inbox which has information on how to order your downpipe and stud kits. Pricing for those products is included in the same email.

Our current DIY kit is now available here: Product Link - Trackspeed EFR Turbocharger System. It consists of our full turbo hotside (manifold/turbo/downpipe/studs). Oil/water lines will be added towards the end of this month, and intercooler/heatshields/etc will come in the spring.

A quick blurb on our downpipes. They are all stainless, full 3" construction from the turbo back, with a stainless flex joint to isolate the mani/turbo/DP from the rest of the exhaust. It's all compound mandrel bent, which means the four bends before the flex joint will all be on the same piece of pipe. It will ship in two pieces, which allows us to reduce cost by making one upper for all 90-05 cars and two uppers (NA/NB), but once you receive the DP and assemble it the first time, it can be removed from the car without separating it. It will have two O2 sensor bungs (only one is pictured), one for the stock sensor and one for a wideband towards the back. IOW, it's what everyone expected - properly designed and well packaged.

Downpipes are on a 10 week timeline, so we expect to ship them towards the end of March. We have to cut custom tooling to compound mandrel bend the upper DP, which causes a bit of a leadtime, but it also reduces cost substantially and cuts out four potential failure points.



Hopefully that covers the basics. Next up is oil/water lines, hopefully by the end of this month.

I'm curious about the Stage 8 fasteners. Most people, including myself, who've used custom manifolds with the EFR6258 found that they wouldn't fit without a lot of modification/grinding of "the teardrop". I ended up not using them and using these Nissan ones instead since one was left dangerously thin:

Nissan Genuine OEM T25 T28 Turbo Turbine Locking Tab

Are you supplying modified/tailored Stage 8 fasteners or does the manifold accommodate them without modification?

I'm hoping it's the latter since a cast manifold can allow more clearance for the studs/fasteners than a welded one.

I did grind the locking tabs on the Stage 8s slightly, but it wasn't required to install them - I just wanted them to sit a little closer to the turbine housing. The nuts clear the turbine housing without any issue. This is an M8 kit, not our old M10 kit.

Thanks for the confirmation - I had the M8 kit and they wouldn't fit, there wasn't enough clearance. I believe others have had the same issue too.
