We wanted to show you the way we decided to put our ""kit"" together. Thought thats what you guys are into.

So I am guessing (as I am left to guess) that your problem with our oil drain is that is has a 90 degree-ish bend in it? Unfortunately, it had to be this way because of the design of his manifold. However, I assure you that if you saw the tapered internal design of that fitting you would agree that it, too, is legit.

That sealant is "ultra copper." Which to my amazement is a direct replacement for an exhaust gasket in many situations! I didn't believe it at first either.

I'm here to exchange information, not 'dazzle' anybody.

Alright douchebag, you asked for it.
The comment you quoted of me was towards Sams pic, not anything you said. I still think you are an idiot and have no questions I would want answered by you. As far as the attitude goes, this forum was just fine before you got here and will remain as is even after you are gone, which is coming up very shortly I assure you. We do not like little prima donnas that bitch about every comment that they didn't like. Quite frankly, if you don't like it, **** off!

The build looks halfway decent, but a few things you are claiming are just plain retarded. Who dumps into their engine bay??? I have yet to see that.

Nobody is saying it doesn't work, and noone is telling you what to do, you want to melt ****, go ahead...but I assume that you came to this place to get advice and ideas and feedback, that's what you have been getting. If you cannot take criticism, I advise you to go hide under a rock.

See you've got it all wrong. We are into giving people a hard time, it's an immature and childish sport but fun. Exchanging information, not so much.

My issue with the drain is how it is clocked. From the pictures it doesn't look like there is any reason you couldn't have had it clocked straight down.

I don't suspect that ultra copper will last, better to have good surfaces and no gasket to fail. But I guess with the open dump any exhaust leak at the DP will be a minor thing.

Maybe you can be all tough guy once you turbo your car. Go sit in the corner with Hustler. Pray he doesn't touch you where you pee.

Ya, rereading things, your probably right. I just wish actual information that I could work off of and respond too was more often included in such commentary, or that people would at least have read my responses to criticisms before putting them forth AGAIN. But I suppose thats the nature of the beast (internet forums).

Its very frustrating, as I'm sure you understand. I probably just have to get used to it all over again (haven't been on any forums in about a year and a half haha).

You sound like one of those typical little ------s that gets their babydick kicked in frequently. Noone is Dazzled, we have seen it all, and yes, we are smarter than you, just accept defeat and we may let you stay.
The manifold is nice, the turbo is nice, I am a believer of the ultra copper, I am all about cheap (look at my groupbuys). We are not the problem, you are! Quit your bitching or beware of the banstick.
Exchange information...that's what we do everyday. Today, we are trying to get some information to you but your skull is a bit too thick to accept it.

Oooh ok. Now were getting somewhere
I think its at about the same angle as the one in my ZX (OEM turbo) actually, but perhaps you have a point. Ill keep an eye on it. The center section was pretty well seized to the turbine housing though

1) Congradulation on handling everyone's initial abuse well... you'll do ok around here.

2) Tell you buddy Gavin to chill out a bit, he is going to **** folks off.

3) Many of the comments are meant to be constructive. We don't know how much previous experience you have with building your own turbo system so we assume you know nothing. Don't take this stuff as insults or putting your car down. Most of us will not admit it, but our DIY kits were equally ghetto for at least some period of time (you should see my downpipe that originally came off a prelude).

4) The oil burning comment is relating to the angle of your chra. The oil drain is purely gravity fed. You never want your CHRA to exceed 5 degrees from vertical (per Garrett) or you can reduce the life of your seals and bearings and burn oil easier. It's a simple fix, just loosen your housings and rotate it so the drain is straight down. It will take you 20 mins.

Welcome aboard.

E-Thugging is for ****, you know who you are. Ease up on the guy Zabac, you aren't helping any and frankly your e-thugging isn't entertaining at all.

A pickle fork can be wedged between the port bosses on the chra and the housing to split them apart. I had to do that on mine when I rebuilt it.

Hustler's been absent lately, and this place was getting a little soft...I am trying, I am trying...just not as good of an e-thug I suppose.
