You've still got plenty of time to hit 2000 posts without pressurizing your car!

Oh the sweet smell of power.

That downpipe is so sexy, I almost didn't want to install mine... just mount it over the fireplace as a conversation piece.

Man, i never knew they welded that tubing onto the compressor inlet. Crazy **** right there. Wonder if they do anything to combat warpage when welding housings or if someone had the housing off the turbo if it would be a problem.

*shakes head at modifying compressor inlets*

It's like someone machining down the nice smooth velocity-stack style inlet on turbos like mine to 2.5" hose size, it makes me cry a little.

Lets chop off the wings of this 747 so it fits in our little hangar better...

so are they gonna swap the turbo for you?

I hope. I really think the gt28rs will be much happier at 250whp than the 2560. I have a built motor, so I'd like to have a little head room...if i ever get a ring for a 6-speed that can take the power.

just talked to Stephanie at BEGi, and everything is getting taken care of.
