Hehehe, yeah...looks to be more than just set the boost and away you go, there's a few other features you have to play around with.

Update: Boost controller installed and set @ 12psi (13psi is fuel cut on my car)...this thing flies now...wouldn't doubt that it's a mid-high 13s car now...and that turbo sound is oh so sweet... :D

Just wore out, or pushed it too far?

Definitely a combination of the two I'd say (still was only 11psi). It had some bent/chipped fins so I'm sure it was working alot harder than a new turbo would to achieve the same flow/pressure...more than likely it's downfall.

I was half expecting it to crap out fairly soon...just a good excuse for an upgrade... :D

Damn near 300k kms on that turbo too! What a champ!

What do you want pics of? Bent/chipped fins? Othewise it looks like any other CT-26 out there... :p I'll be doing some fiberglassing for a shop tomorrow so I can pull the car in and take some pics of the fins.


Yes, yes it does... :D Esp. when you have an upgraded suspension and a rebuilt/worked over engine...w00t
