I used to have one of those. I thought I was hot ---- at the autocross after winning two straight seasons in my class. Then some guy showed up in a Cosworth powered Caterham. I didn't win anymore.

Back on topic. What is the deal with this CHRA? I haven't heard anything new about Garrett CHRA's or issues they were having. Is this a recommendation for heavily tracked cars?

This upgrade is not really an option for anyone, unfortunately. I have a friend in high places who did me a huge favor. The guys who serviced the turbo were "impressed" with what I did to it, lol. This bearing is from a TR30R I believe, I know its a "motorsports bearing".

So what happens when hustler goes back to being NA and realizes that it is driver skill not the car that is holding him back?

Horsepower/speed is easily purchased. Skill cannot be purchased. How many of you have been to a track day with people driving Vettes, GT-Rs, GT-3s, etc who don't really have any skill?

Lack of horsepower != lack of skill. Hustler has made a monumental decision, using all of the lobes of his brain, that his goals could not be achieved on the path he was on, and could be achieved on this new path. So, all of you thinking he has wussed out, or can't hack it, This is a decision that takes a man.
