Default Affordable tial Vband housing?

I want to do a V-band churby setup i just nabbed a GT2860rs .84 and i looked at tials website and i couldnt find any pricing which leads me to believe they only wholesale. Maybe one of you can chime in?

You will not find one cheaper than $430. Want in one hand, **** in the other, and see which one fills up first.

Best price I could find:

TiAL SS Turbine Housings : Himni Racing, Turbocharger, Turbo, Garrett, Turbo Kit, GReddy, Mazda RX-7, HKS, Apexi, TiAL, TurboXS, TurboSmart, Flange, Turbonetics, Exhaust, Intercooler, ACT, Intake

However, you may want to call beforehand to get a ETA on it since it may be backordered for weeks. A place like ATP (I believe this is where tim gets his) or Full Race is more likely to stock them. BTW, you still need the flange and v-band. Stuff gets expensive quickly.

My source for TiAL stuff is either ATP or, as I found out today, BEGI! My dad's shop got approved to become a TiAL dealer today too, I have to come up with the $3500 buy in first however. Too bad Sav already has his stuff, that would have helped a lot.

EDIT: Retail on the .86 turbine from ATP is $365, so even thru ATP I can sell it less than that. But like has been mentioned, you have 2 x $50 flanges and 2 x $35 clamps, plus an external wastegate to buy too.

Prob would of been cheaper just to buy the turbo new with the tial exhaust housing... 800 for a new turbo (200 miles) and fittings,

1200 for a brand spankin new churby with v band housing.

I think if i got the tial housing for anything less than 400 id be ahead. Tim, this project is a month or so away. Maybe we can offer a group buy to get an order from tial direct through your dealer. Id be in for : .86 housing with other mate and clamp, WG vband and clamp, 3" v band for the downpipe with clamp, probably more v bands, So like 700-800$ order. and could you also win me the lottery? Thanks

well, I may need another turbo if UPS can't find mine. Yes, my shipment from BEGi is lost in transit. It was never signed for, but delivered. The ******* saga continues.

I think its pretty cool that this entire forum is switching over to v-bands. We'll show the Evo faegs what's up.

I'm supposed to speak with UPS again today about cutting a check for a new turbo.

Damn Hustler...I don't know what to say.

With regards to a TiAL group buy, I have to review the 4 page minimium advertized price document. I don't think you can advertize group buys on the internet or wherever.

What I will try to do however is charge "full price" on the TiAL parts to whomever buys a manifold/downpipe from me, and sell the mani/downpipe for a lot less...same basic thing. Ultimate cost on the entire setup would be less than if I just bought the stuff from ATP like I've been doing.

On my list of definites:
GT2871 52 trim .86a/r, MV-s, flanges & clamps (the snowboarder)
MV-s, flanges & clamps (hustler)

Maybe:
.86 a/r, MV-s, flanges & clamps (sbkcocker)
BOV (hustler)

I may as well get a .64 a/r or two too, and maybe a turbo for me.

you guys and your .86!!! where's my back to back dyno runs to prove this? what made y'all decide to never look at a .64 again?

incidentally, UPS will fix your **** the second you call up and ask for a supervisor and tell them they owe you the cost of a turbo. if they can't show a signature or note from you, they're fooooooked
