If you want to part with the chinacharger I might be willing to take it off your hands and continue the experiment... my budget is just so fucked lately It's hard to make progress on my car.

Here's what the manifold looks like. I don't think it looks bad at all.

BTW, just got a chinacharger off ebay. Offered $139 on the $149 buy it now(expensive because it included the downpipe flange) and they accepted! It's from ETD Motors.

Luckily I don't need as much power as Markp. I'll be very happy with a low power setup that spins the tires in 3rd gear and runs 12's!

Good point. I should have no problem there getting access to E85.

I am not sure I am ready to part with the chinacharger yet. I might make a hybrid chinacharger. I am a little disappointed, the T70 has a smaller inducer than the T3/T4 chinacharger but a much larger turbine.

What I want to do is take the new turbo and put the T3/T4 50 trim wheel on the T70 but use the T70 housing. The T3/T4 has a 2.25 inducer with a 3" exducer and a .50 A/R. The T70 has a 2.07" inducer with a 3" exducer and a .70 A/R.

Ok, I am sure that the challenge of OIS training may in fact come close to that of fogging a mirror, but it's been 10 long years since I have been in the service. And then, I was in the USAF! Not exactly the most Military of services especially considering that I served at Edwards AFB, a test facility run primarily by civilians.
