Yah I was hoping I was still slow enough that I could hold off on safety wire till I had downtime when it was cold out. Apparently I was wrong.

i don't understand why it's not necessary on any other turbo's. is it due to the tial housing thats swapped on?

It sure looks that way after Savington, your's truly, and Lars all had the same problem. After you add the cost of the $120 bolts and $100 EDM drilling to the $400 turbine housing...holy **** I wish EFR turbos were available 4-years ago.

I heard a rumor last night that someone might be making a full V-Band and External gate housing for the EFR's. If it fits my current manifold I would not be opposed to possibly switching sometime in the future. It sucks though that there is still a long wait for even the normal EFR turbos. I want to see a few in miatas out on the track.

If you watch the EFR promo vid, you'll see that one of the development engineers has a black NA, lol.



^^^^this dynochart compares EFR 6258 .64 A/R (red line) to Garrett GT2871R .64 A/R (blue line) both are at 23psi boost. It is easy to see the EFR spools much faster and delivers a more usable and faster responding powerband




Guys, I hate to say it, but I'm on the fence about NOLA. I spent $1600 on my car since the valve problem and bullshit to get the car going again, I made a book keeping error and was not 1-month ahead on rent like I thought I was, I was denied the bonus check that was confirmed earlier in the month, I had a $400 speeding ticket for 8mph over, I'm on the hook for Reverant's MS2, I survived today's lay-off round, there's another lay-off round the first week on January (so the big-wigs can take December off), and had to pay for a sexual reassignment surgery. We'll see what happens but I'm 50/50.

The guy with the black NA was at the Mitty and I talked to him for a bit. He was also on here, but I believe he sold the car. I also worked corners with a guy who was interning at BW. He was a big fan of the EFR's.

My brother and I will be camping in the trailer.

Car is still in pieces, but it's 150-160 pounds lighter than it was at Hallett and I've got a few days to finish putting it back together.

And put air bags/pump on the tow rig, mount the trailer tool boxes to the floor, and mount the winch, and and and.

Well boys looks like we are going to have a strong TAILwind on the front straight on Saturday! The rain chance has been downgraded to 30% as well.
