      Yeah, it is gonna be a tiny turbine housing and wheel. I would go with the Autotech 270 before a G60-style split grind though. I think even with your tiny turbo the lsa is wide enough and the cam...

      You have to unbolt your turbine housing and measure the major and minor diameters of the turbine wheel with a pair of vernier calipers.

      I made over 400 at the wheels with an Autotech 270, so I wouldn't worry too much about making 250 with one. You have it, so run it. Your turbine housing is tiny, so it is probably just as well to...

      Can't comment on the rod-conversion stuff because we haven't used any of it, but the cable stuff works pretty well for us.

      Not in North America--it definitely can be done in a "street style" fwd car though.

      The Brazilians have gone really quick with 8v stuff, both counter-flow and cross-flow-- mainly hot rod and...

      Supertech makes the TT springs. It is rumored Schrick makes the Autotech springs. I believe all will work well in your application.

      You won't have to worry about shimming the valvesprings with...

      Lol, no problem.

      28-29 psi-- would have been more but the 60-1 gets unhappy above that boost level, and is one of the things I have now changed on the car, along with the intercooler and head. A...

      Correct, 4 gears. It has a CHE trans with AP spool. I shifted at 7800 rpm (yes it is making power there). The slicks grow about 1" on the top end, so run a 23" tire in your calcs and you'll see I...
