No, they're custom. The kid that owned my car before me made them, I remember seeing pictures of him making them on his photobucket page, but all I can find now is this one. They're 2-3/8" Diameter 2-3/4" Tall

Oh and for anyone wanting to do the rivnuts... they are really easy and you do not need a special tool. Did mine yesterday and all I used was 2 box wrenches, a bolt that fits the rivnuts, a washer and an oversized nut (works as a guide/sleeve for bolt to go through).



Hold tight on the larger nut and then wrench away on the bolt.

I'll tell ya, cars definitly have a mind of their own . Mine must have heard me talking about selling, so it told me to **** off by blowing the turbo yesterday as I was attempting to make some videos to post up in my FS thread The first video is the pull I knew something didn't feel right (Took forever to spool and made some weird noises), the second shows the shaft play. On the bright side of things for anyone interested in buying the car, it will have a new turbo soon

Idk....I remember seeing all these threads on here with people running the chinachargers, but at the time I did'nt really care so I didn't pay attention to what size everyone was going with.....got to do some homework and figure out what will work best. Which one are you going with?

GT2870 it's going to lag a little more then your set up and alot more than my greddy set up but I think I'll like it and I want some head room for when I build my motor.
