Congratulations, enjoy that thing!

By the way, it's no fluke, my MKTURBO ran 3 12's today for my best time yet 12.88, on crappy all season tires. These things can do 12's.

How though lol - i would love to see a video of you driving those 12's, it would probably help me improve my times, especially with my built engine going in soon

Thanks Brain! I've had 5 tequila's on the rocks and that was frustrating me at the moment.

About 6k miles since I finished install and got tuned everything's working great so far other than the slight oil leak on the turbo feed which isn't a bug issue and also recently the extra hanger broke off causing a hole in the pipe it was welded to. I don't think it was the weld since it ripped a small portion of the pipe off causing a leak. Most likely it's the shitty roads in MA and my semi collapsed rear springs banging the exhaust. Other than that no complaints about the kit I would highly recommend this to anyone on a budget

Sorry that the hanger broke off. It should be an easy fix for an exhaust shop to do. You could try having them add in a second mount point for that hanger to help to distribute the load.

don't worry about it Larz. Wasn't anything you did. I'll prob have an exhaust shop reweld the hang on and prob another rod to the other side of the pipe.

Just a small update. I have a ton of orders still and I am working on them in pieces. Here are the 10 1.8 manifolds that I am currently building.

Some time in 2017. All 10 of those manifolds are spoken for. Then I have to build some 1.6 setups. Then back to NB setups hopefully.

Between celebrating stealing this nation from the natives, hanging out with family, and fighting a damn cold I managed to get a bit more done on setups over the weekend. I have more axle backs being prepped, they just are not in this picture.

To the folks that have tracked their cars: Have you found anything you have had to upgrade or modify for reliability?

I am planning on getting some TSE Inconel studs for the turbo but cannot think of anything else I need to grab (other than clutch, injectors, MS from Braineack, Intercooler, etc).

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
