Then I might end up being the 3rd the way my T25 is going I might swap it all out for a ghetto t3/4 with differential manifold/dp.

reviving this thread to ask MarkP for an update on the chinacharger performance. is the turbo still alive and kicking? It's been nearly 6 months, how many miles have you got on it?

The ghettocharger was fine, even though debris from broken steel had hit the turbine blades it survived with a couple of dings to the blade. The manifold was repairable but since the dump pipe for the wastegate was stupidly implemented it would have just cracked again. So I decided to redo it. Partially because I wanted more power.

It's coming soon. Some delays and I decided to go with E85/1600cc injectors and a slightly larger turbo this time.

LOL. Geeze guys.

I'm been married for 17 years. I celebrated our anniversary with the wife yesterday. Yes, my wife is VERY understanding and absolutely phenomenal. I am moving to MD and will be there on August 15, 2007 provided I make it through OIS in Rhode Island in July.

Depending on where you live in MD, you can get your E85 in Annapolis or Ft. Meade. I assume you'll have base access.
