WOW -
That sucks. So, you sent your Turbo off to "Never-Never Land"?

How long ago did you send it off, and what particular location did you send it from? There should be a copy in their records on the day you sent it out. I'd check into it a little further than just "throw in the towel"............
P.S. I'm a thinkin that only the GReddy will fit that particular Mani & D/P

you could upgrade to any garrett t25 5-bolt turbine.

TurboTim has a modified DP that will fit, iirc.
that includes the gt2554R, 2560, SR20 t25, etc.

Otherwise it requires a custom flange for the DP.

Seems to me that this topic comes up quite a bit around here. My understanding is that the little TD04H-15G turbo is easily capable of an efficient 250HP, and that short of that there's really no point in "upgrading" to a different unit.

well i contacted usps and they told me unless i purchased tracking or delivery confirmation or insurance there is no way for them to track it. so i dont ******* know and it went from sandiego , ca to Springdale, AR . so im certain there isnt a whole lot of problems with a priority package (2-3 day shipping) reaching its destination in that time. it has been since saturday till now that is if you count saturday 5 days. so say you dont count saturday because i dropped it off in an automated unit outside so maybe it didnt get picked up untill monday that would be 4 days.

I've had "Priority Mail" take 2 weeks to be delivered. Sometimes stuff happens, usually around the holidays though.

well like i said i forgot to buy tracking or insurance. and also as i stated i do fell really stupid.im praying its just taking a long time to get there. and it wasnt the whole turbo it was just the chra so not like many people could use it. so as i stated im just hoping its taking longer then 2 days.
