Default Just bought my new snail!

Well after much thought I decided on which turbo to go with. I bought the brand new PTE Billet 5857 wheel; it's DBB and doesn't use water lines. :-D
And for 1395.00 you cannot beat the price! By far should blow a GT30R out of the water.

Hopefully I can get results soon, more info can be found here.
