      I guess we will see how long my 5857 on the Audi lasts.


      On this same subject 4 years maybe 5 now I bought my ATP kit from a user on here who went through two 3071R turbos in 2000 miles. He gave up.


      Know what the issue was? The downpipe physically contacted the compressor housing, and heated it up enough to cause it to blow up. He went through two turbos that way, sold a kit for 1/4 of the cost he originally paid not knowing why they went.


      Food for thought. Never know what people do.

      Silly question but I'm looking at precision and TRE intercoolers and they don't look like they have any sort of mounting brackets welded on. Can I request that or do I have to have somebody weld me on some.

      You need to fab mounts yourself. Nothing too hard w/ a chop saw and a welder. PTE350 and PTE600 fit fine under my bumper cover. I cut/ground out my tow hitch and anything else in the way though, fits well right in the lower bumper opening on my setup. outlets end up right in the side vents pretty much centered when I was top mount, now I can prolly get the covers back on if I wanted w/ a PAG bottom mount setup.

      No offense man but this isn't a turbo comparison / preference thread. Take it somewhere else, I will be going with a Garrett and no other.

      Still awaiting the FX400 arrival. Once it gets here I'll be almost immediately having it installed. Unfortunately the IE rods weren't in stock at another vendor so I have to wait up to 2 weeks for those.

      Also should I go with a 3" or 2.5" catback... I already have a techtonics tuning 2.5" downpipe.


      EDIT: I guess 3" catback would make sense that way I can always upgrade to a 3" downpipe in the future.

      don't do 2.5" exhaust on your big turbo. you'll surely be robbing yourself of significant power 3" all the way

      Alright I'll have to order the turbo back 3" from 42DD then. Also does $475 sound a bit steep for a clutch install?

      I don't have the time or resources for that or trust me I would. If this was years ago while I was still in college or highschool then sure but not anymore.

      Yeh well, tired of neglecting her. Also found out I'll probably be driving her down to Orlando in October for vacation so that exhaust will come in handy for the long drive.

      Also just noticed you're from Orlando. I'll have to look you up while we're down there.

      Where can I get the stock exhaust hangers. Not just the rubber grommets but everything. I removed them when we fabricated my 2.5" and used some heavy duty hangers I know the 42DD exhaust won't line up with them. I'm going to need to replace the stock ones and I definitely didn't hang on to them.
