and if you get it on the dyno at Tom's i would love to come see it

I didnt even read the part about the EFR's those are the ones with the Diverter valve built in right?

15-1700 for the sizes that fit on the focus.

not bad when it makes building a manifold and charge pipe cheaper along with getting rid of the need to buy a wg and bov separate. i usually dont like iwg's but these are redesigned to flow like an external gate and are set up to flow 40% of the total flow of the turbo it self. im very interested in these and hope i can get my hands on one soon. also being a borg warner it has a very high pressure ratio so it can reliably exceed 35psi with out over heating the air

welding like that is just practice and reading and practice and money lol

i may be doing another donor car for those turbos but im not sure yet. if i can get a discount on them then im sure i will. but thats the future. right now im just going to concentrate on the first kit. but i'll let you know if i decide to make a separate kit if you are really interested. how ever i think the only change may be the dp for that turbo since the new iwg design so i may be able to make it work just using my jigs and sell the first trial one as a discount. only time will tell

no no no no! i was joking about the SVT! im keeping my grubby fingers off that booger and im leaving it STOCK! you will understand why after you see what ive done to the poor zx3 over the years. if it wasnt going to get turned into a stripped out, ugly as sin, weekend warrior, street/track car then it would be a sorry excuse for a sad excuse for a grocery getter.

oh and ive been told that i weld like helen keller
