well, im now at that stage to concentrate on the turbo.
ive planned for a while now to have a vxr unit uprated by Turbo Dynamics to complete my first leg (350bhp), TD came reccommended by NPD following his great thread, 'new turbo blog'.
ive sourced a new, but used turbo, the bearings are done in but TD are replacing that part anyway.
ive discussed with them the options available and ive decided to go for their MD-496 package, which is, blueprinting, 360 degree thrust bearing, enlarged compressor housing and some other stuff that flew right over my head.
basically, the turbo will hit 350bhp comfortably.
the courier is coming tomorrow to pick it up, TD will inspect the turbo and call me. if alls goes well and theirs no unforseen damage, the works will continue.
so fingers crossed.
the car is progressing
