This takes it to the next level. I give credit to FM for a producing a simple reliable kit, but it still has two key weak points; poor Garrett IWG design and loosening hardware (when run hard).

EFR IWG + v-band solves both.

Essentially OEM reliability after a good tune. No messing around under the hood unless you want to.

TSE Inconel studs are THE solution for a four bolt turbo. Props to Andrew for bringing these to market. They work like voodoo magic.

Inconel studs + Resbond + Locking hardware = The Unholy Voodoo Trinity

Atheist V-bands sidestep all the voodoo drama.

I hav been putting a few EWG's on turbo housings lately and it works AMAZINGLY. The issue with EWG on a manifold is (obviously) poor flow, usually due to crappy pipework to the EWG. I feel that a gate attached directly to a housing scroll is the way to go, ie, internal, or external but on the rear housing.

How are they holding up? I've thought about doing this but wasn't sure about longevity of it. Could you clear some of your PM's so I could ask you some more questions?

What, like this?



Special Turbine Housing T25-EWG-44 : atpturbo.com

I had briefly considered buying Hustlers turbo and swapping the exhaust housing for something like this, but then decided it was too much complication and expense for me at this stage. Neat idea though.

Sorry to continue the derail

Yeah like the welded one Viper posted.

I've just heard that welding cast is hard and won't last forever. But I got a second turbine housing so I might just guinea pig it.
