That's why I didn't port my turbo like that, it's pretty thin right there.

It's good that you are pushing the limits of these turbos so we don't have to

That's an exciting pile of stuff!

Fedex is currently holding all 8 turbos I ordered hostage. Trying to get them to hold them at a local depot and that seems to be to hard for them.

FedEx recently left a very expensive camshaft which was shipped next day early am signature required at a 'neighbor business' which according to the customer isn't occupied. So much fail.

So as of this morning fedex tracking had not updated. So I started making calls, Fedex main number could tell me nothing. So I found the number of the local Fedex ground depot and gave them a call, the guy there was actually helpful and said they had been dropped off yesterday morning at 8:35am like tracking said. So I called over to the depot I had holding them and they are just sitting there waiting. When I talked to them yesterday afternoon they were no where to be found. **** Fedex. All my setups will be shipped UPS.

Well that sucks. I've had both good and bad with FedEx. Hopefully it's sorted soon.

If you haven't already, you should get an account with ups. You can get 10+% off right out of the gate, and then more if you do a lot of shipping. I have an account set up from a previous company that still gives me a few bucks off even though I only ship stuff a few times a year. The biggest discounts are on ground shipping too.

I am planning on setting up a UPS account. Hopefully in the next week or two. I do have paypal up and running now. So all final payments will be done with that.

I managed to free the turbos today while getting lunch.

I have a UPS account for my business. If you want when it's all ready to ship my kit we could bill to my account although sometimes that's a PITA.

You have Paypal now!!!! Woho!!!!!

I have no problem using customers UPS accounts if they want. I think I just need your account number and such. At that point I would just charge you what ever the boxes and packing material costs.

It doesn't really matter. Paypal for one amount works fine for me when you want it.

Where are you getting these turbos? I'm looking at building a custom setup and would love to play with one. Have you thought about selling just the manifold? Your entire kit won't work with my exocet unfortunately.

I get the turbos off eBay. Search for "t3 .48ar v-band" and you will find them. I have no strong desire to just sell manifold, but shoot me an email and we might be able to work something else. You are not the first person to ask about exocet fitment. One day way in the future if I ever get time to build an exocet I may offer setups for them. Or if someone lets me use one as a test car to build off of. I promise to be faster with the test mule then Begi is.

At this time I am still waiting on head flanges. They are being worked on, but I don't know when they will be done. Hopefully by the end of next week. I have everything else needed except for a few more mufflers. Right now I am currently working on getting NB axle backs and mid pipes together. Once I finish those this weekend I will move on to making 8 downpipes. Then NA mid pipes and axles backs. Once I get the head flanges in I will immediately switch to getting all the manifolds built.

Interesting outer profile...nice way of making it (slightly more) difficult to weld around those pipes.
Ehh whatever, i'm just in a bad mood. The flanges look good Larz. Those look expensive to make. Add another 5 min to the cycle time and engrave your logo on there.

What do you mean interesting outer profile?

The flanges are a bit more expensive then normal ones, but much easier for me to work with and flow better then normal ones. I drop the schedule 40 weld el right into the outer hole and it fits perfectly. I don't have to spend time crushing the weld el's and trying to get them all lined up perfectly and such. I should also be getting MKTurbo engraved on flanges, but if it does not happen this batch I will not complain.

There doesn't look like there's much material between the edge of the counterbore and the outer edge of the flange in areas.
