Savington,

Are you planning on enlarging the holes on the turbine housing to accommodate 10MM studs? If so, will you need to machine the flats on the turbine housing to accommodate the larger nuts?

Thanks

We'll be using M8 Inconel hardware and a turbo brace.

I'm surprised you're not going straight vband everywhere.

cliff notes:

no v-band housings for EFR yet
10mm hardware with EFR is doable (i haz it) but a pain in the ***

Treadstone Performance Engineering was working on something a year and a half ago, but I do know if ever was finished. If they make a V-band housing that fit the v-band flange currently on my manifold I would be very tempted to get one to try out.

I actually just asked them about this and their official answer was, sorry we're only making them for the bigger ones, B2 frame.

That sucks. I might give them a call in a bit just to chat and see what is up.

I just got off the phone with them and he though I was you calling. Said the same thing that they are only working on the bigger housings. Maybe one day in the future they will expand, but I highly doubt it ever happens.

We're sticking with the standard Borg housing.

ATP machines the Tial vband inlet size into the garret 4 bolt inlet flanges, I don't see why that can't be done to the borgs too.

I'd be fine with the 4bolts/inconel solution.

Sucks about no v-band. But inconel should be good still.
Any updates?

The FM M8 inconel package (installed with Resbond) has been flawless (so far) for several track days, autocrosses and spirited street driving. Stock studs failed fairly quickly for me.

Vband or not, these EFR things have some nice features built in. I'm rethinking the hot side of my setup and this kit could simplify things. Eagerly awaiting more info.

Any updates on an availability date? I'm planning to add a turbo this winter and would seriously consider this kit if it will be available... Car is of the road, ready to start.
