Think it was $730 shipped with complete rebuild and the new actuator installed.

Most see 200-250 whp with a well set up greddy kit. This should add 20-40? I hope. Mine at 11PSI made 200 whp.

You like the wastegate?

Pics of it install on the turbo/how you have the turbo clocked? If it fits, I might just order it from them, I didn't have the cash then...but I do now.

Thanks! (Did you get the car running again?)

Wouldnt it have been cheaper to just buy a larger turbo instead of having yours rebuilt?

Prob, but I was not interested in rebuilding the manifold and the IC piping.

Yes it runs, waiting on the MBC, it does make 10psi on the WG they installed and it fits perfect! Going to get the MBC today, than 15 PSI yea!

Its clocked like the stock greddy, I'll post pics later. Also doe not look like it needs that much tuning, to 10psi itt just a little under 11:1 fo I'm good with that.

If you got the welding skills to put a new flange on the downpipe and possibly the manifold.

I was thinking he could have bought a larger turbo with the same flanges. Kinda like if you go from a GT25 to a GT28.

Greddy kinda fucked us on that deal. As far as I've been able to find the downpipe flange is odd.

Same here. Luckily we have brand new turbos capable of low 300s now.
