Default Where did all the Borg Warner EFRs go?

I've been searching for a vendor that has a 6258 in stock. So far, I'm on two waiting lists. Many of the vendor websites say "In stock" but have none when I call them. Anyone know of a place that still has them?

Check www.Himniracing.com

They seem to have them in stock. No one has them because it's being realized by many that the EFR is with out a doubt the best turbo on the market. Garrett is probably shitting their pants right now because their GTX is getting destroyed.

We have one for development, but it took a while to find. Their supply chain should be up to speed by the time our kits are released next year, though.

The only specs on Savington's TSE kit is that it is BAD ***. At least from what I have heard.

That is a 6258? All of the pics of the 6258 that I have seen have the anti-surge on the inlet and the boost controller.

Woohoo!! I just got lucky and got one from Fullrace. I called and they said they come in sporadically. I got on the waiting list and received an email shortly after telling me one is arriving tomorrow.

So wait, TSE is making their own kit? That sounds like WIN-RAR.
If it doesn't cost a metric shitton (which in the stingy miata community is a very vague term, I know this), its going to put a serious hurting on FM and BEGi

After reading through the BW description I think those EFR turbos are ultra sexy. It makes me want to build another turbo car just so I can use one. I hope Garrett is defecating in their trousers; they need some more competition (other than the Chinachargers).

I want EFR, I may go airwerks as a stop gap but perhaps the EFRs will be available when I am ready to buy the turbo towards the spring.

EDIT: AND +20e343 on Trackspeed's turbo kit.

This is an open letter to Garrett, feel free to ship me a GTX2863 and I will get my kitty to pose with it.

I'd still rather have a turbo without the wastegate and BOV integrated. I've never had an IWG that worked to my liking and I don't like the idea of those plastic parts so close to hot exhaust.
