Default Well, bought the turbo

Lance at JGS hooked me up.

He will take the weird mercedes 5 bolt housing my T04B-S uses and bore it out to stage 3 so I can run a 50 trim without changing any of my plumbing. He has extra turbine housings lying around so I dont even have to send in mine.

Lance rules.

And I finished brewing my first batch of beer in 6 months, german style wheat beer. This is the bottom of the fermenter, note the yeast on the bottom of the glass, and the lack of head. The rest of it is in a keg in the fridge, carbonating.

Sounds like we need to have a turbo install and homebrew night.

Is that the merc housing that has the weird built in piston type actuator from a 300D? That's a .63 A/R housing. Good for the forum archives and for a junkyard find if anyones planning on dumpster diving any time soon.

No, it is exactly the shape of a Ford T3 housing, only slightly larger.

Just imagine a T3 Ford housing only when you go to bolt up your 5 bolt flange, it doesnt fit because your flange is too small and the holes dont line up.
