He's too busy being a P-car collector, sniffing his own farts, going to pop-up art galleries and drinking Petrolicious branded espresso :-P

I forget which turbine housing you have right now, but there are 4 or 5 different A/Rs available for the GTX42R turbine. You could always go up to a larger housing if you find yourself at a power...

Erik can correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think he was applying any pressure to the top of the gate to attempt to keep it closed. The "bolt mod" effectively does that mechanically - seemed like a...

Awesome, thanks for the whole riveting saga in one megapost.

For others reading this - Erik's core issue was wastegate flutter. From the video he sent me it did sound a bit like compressor surge,...

Have fun with that big bad boy. The world needs video.

Regarding the wastegate mounting - you gotta do watchu gotta do. It's not ideal but you know that. I won't grill you for it...much.

What I will add is that the influence of "billet" gets grossly over-inflated in marketing and bench racing.

I'd wager that almost all of the high-flowing billet wheels on the market could indeed...

FAKE NEWS. The fact that it's billet doesn't matter as much as the geometry of the wheel and its blades.

If you can post some photos of that wheel it might be interesting to compare to the GTX...

It's a GTX4202R, with a 102mm compressor wheel, and 82mm turbine (both major diameters). Would need to keep in mind wheel sizes and turbine A/R to make it a meaningful comparison.

What are the...

Well damn, I didn't realize this many folks were hitting 130+ in their 240s. Good to know! I guess I don't pay much attention to drag racing trap speeds.

Sounds exciting! I've done 140 in my E36 Lemons car...not in a race but on the front straight at Willow Springs' big track. It felt utterly fine. I'm not sure how a 240 will behave at those speeds...
