Does anyone know if this actually indicate some production change?
Black tag indicates that the chra core and housings are better than your living on the streets crack ***** EFR. It also has no meaning to me whatsoever, no clue :shrug:

If you coat your housing, making you wait another 4 weeks, for superficial reasons...I'll slap you G.

I know the early 6258 had problems do maybe the newer units have been revised.

An even simpler answer is the black tags were 1 cent cheaper or they ran out of blue!

And yes the irony of me commenting on waiting due to superficial reasons is hilariously hypocritical.

I've fucked something else up and I'm pretty sure I've got another 6 weeks to wait before I can get my engine together. So

Maybe I'll just buy my EFR a blankie.

I should NOT have an early unit. My 'faces of meth' housing is due to BW shutting down production, fixing the problem, then moving from investment casting to sand casting the turbine housings. Sand is faster and cheaper but much uglier.

I'm just going to **** my pants and email FAB, Full-Race and BW and get confirmation. I'm starting to feel like Hustler.

Of all the things I did to my car sending all my bolts to get zinc coated was by far the best thing I did.

Nothing makes your car look better, and easier to work on then clean bolts.

If I ever find the time to go to a salvage yard that has a Miata I. Gonna strip it of all its bolts and zinc plate them for spares.

Shhhh. We talk him into getting a spare for every single part. Then, after he's polished/refurbished/painted everything, we sneak in and get the parts for assembling a brand new car.

Can you zinc-plate the entire chassis?

I want to powdercoat an entire chassis after seeing how bad non-oem paint quality is unless you spend close to 8k for a legit paint job.

I just threw away like 4 boxes of just random *** parts that I have no energy to sell/wouldn't make enough to sell.

Still have 2 boxes of brand new fresh powdercoated stuff I never ended up putting back on bcsracecar.

I still need to throw a bunch of **** out that isn't worth selling. Too much crap has accumulated that has sat there since day 1.

Craigslist it for free. You never know what people might need. Make 'em take it all or nothing.

Getting my valve cover powder coated made me really want a home powder coating setup. It is unbelievable better than paint. I would love to be able to powder coat any little bracket I make or whatnot.

I'm moving back to Portland in June otherwise I would. And 220 "near" the garage is high up on the list.

That's a lot of garage floorspace to dedicate to powder coating.

The only major difference I can think of is the center assembly is aluminum on Jeff's turbo.
