      Hi Issam,

      Cast crankshaft is not recommended for any big turbo builds. At all. It's for NA application only.

      As for you offer. Hang on for a while. I think my current one is ok.

      If you look closely at the picture you'll see I have a metal strip holding the compressor chargepipe in place. Keeps it away from axle as well.

      Oh yeah. The first thing they will do is check the crank. I just hope I don't need to shell out for another one.
