Yeah I wasn't having a whinge Troy, I happily paid up when it had to be rebuilt as at the time of core leakage I was unable to just take the turbo off the car. I'm sure that would have been great for trying to pinpoint the part failure or possible design floor, or even possible installation overlook (not appointing blame to anyone or anything in particular) these are merely suggestions. Like many new things on the market, like these were im sure at the time, with maybe minimal on car r&d, I'd be curious to know if there ever was anything identified as being known to fail causing the oil water core mixing issues more than a few people have spoken of as I'm sure others would surely have taken the opportunity to return turbos for 'free' repair.

Don't take it personally or anything, I didn't post to make anyone feel like they should have done or offered anything. I didn't post to hold anyone in particular responsible either lol just general chit chat with the possibility of maybe finding out that a cause for these few instances of pretty much the same symptoms had been identified....?? If you happen to stumble across the answer in general conversation, let us know...

we run it up 2moro night
he has checked it all over and putting a fitting in the manifold to check back pressure seeing as we are going to be pushing it

not sure if it will do any good at the track because of the std tailshaft, cant launch it hard
pete thinks he could run a good time in it but ive neva ever raced so it would take me a while to get used to it

current tune it should go over 140mph but we putting more thru it

cant wait to see what happens 2moro
everything is running really well and it hasnt missed a beat
cranks pretty much straight away but its still a little lean on idle so until it gets warm it doesnt like light load

he fixing all that 2moro and playing with the cam timing and eboost before i get there bout 530 then we are putting more boost into it

hopefully hav it regoed in the next couple days to

Congrats on getting the car sorted Troy, good to see you finally bloody finish a car and enjoy it Did you end up making any more power yet? And when are you taking it to the track? One of my customers with 600rwhp on 98 went 130-133?mph a few weeks ago on street tyres, not sure how the pass was as I wasn't there but you should easily be into the mid 130's to low 140's depending on how well you can drive

On the Mr Turbo debate, I have sold 20-30 of them and had a number of failures, mainly leaking water into the oil thru the back plate O ring. I haven't sold them for a few years now as I couldn't handle all the bullsh1t and lies while Ricky was there, being told 2 weeks and taking 16, but I have to say that the turbo on my corolla never had a single issue, Mark always was spot on with repairing anything straight away and willing to do custom things you couldn't get done anywhere else, and personally I like the product. I have been told by someone I respect that uses them quite a lot that in the past 12-18 months they have been refined and the range streamlined and come a long way.

At the end of the day its hard for a small company to R&D anywhere near as fast or as well as a big company like garrett, its great to see an australian company having a go, we all have our f uck ups and it sounds like mark is heading in the right direction

Back on topic, hurry up and put 30psi in that thing troy, my 1G with a manual in it would almost be catching you

The way your thing spools it would leave mine for dead!

The power your making out of that motor is unreal

It's so good to finally have the car sorted n running great
Pete is by far the best tuner I've eva been to and he helps out with everything, not just tuning
Organized my radials, roadworthy, suspension, plugs ect

Mine will either b run 2day or 2moro night
Might look at taking it to the track Wednesday night if I can get the day off, no sat tnt this week

I told pete I'd prob run a 13@140mph lol
He said he'd kick me out n drive it if I did lol
Radials should help, 255/50/16, will prob change the coilovers to as they are far to hard

But 30lb should b interesting, prob b somewhere around 800hp

Car made over 700rwhp @ 23 last night with wheelspin

Made 730@27 with a ****load of wheelspin n the tyres near blowing again
Need some decent tyres!

Won the supra club dyno day with 607rwhp n with it starting to wheelspin from about 135-140kph

The car has some serious balls!
It's an 800+rwhp car easy as

Thought the motor was stuffed cause it was makin noises but turns out it's the flywheel bolts
