So, you cannot use the imgur app as far as I can tell. But on the website, I made a picture^^^ but it's huge. Does anyone know what to do to make it smaller?

Yeah the imgur app is absolute bollocks. Not useful in any way. Otherwise imgur is fantastic.

You can edit the size of the photos(and other things) right there at your images page. Click on "view image info" and select edit. Then check the ones you want to edit and click "edit".

Or select "800x600" on the auto-resize drop down menu before uploading your pictures.

OR just edit that post and add a lowercase L right before the .jpg and it turns into this:

Thanks for that. Now I might get some of these pictures reloaded.

Oh and I did pick this up. I'm going to port it out some to better match the v band. Is the general consensus to port the wastegate hole also?



Now I've got to (eventually) figure out a 3" down pipe.

Alright. All pictures downloaded from photobucket. Rehosted to Imgur. And then every single picture in this thread was replaced and is working again. That took several nights to finish. I feel like I just completed a major project on the car.

Also, I have a 3" down pipe in the works to go with my straight flange housing pictured above, so hopefully that comes full circle before too long. I also picked up STS machining's new version of the bronze m46/m47 shifter bushings with delrin inserts. These will replace the first generation I originally installed.

I posed this question in Performance several weeks back.... most said NO, they recommended a better WG actuator to completely open the swing gate. I'm going to buy the KINUGAWA version for the TD04.

I'm sorting out the 3" DP as well.... I have one supposedly built by JAO/TLAO. Test fit looks pretty good.

Who welded the V band onto that turbine?

I'm hoping I can have my downpipe made to not hang any lower than factory. That's my goal. And I bought that straight housing already set up that way from white855t on here.

I got sts machining's new bronze m47 shifter bushings with delrin inserts installed today. The new inserts are worlds better than the old soft rubber "bushings". I got everything swapped over and my first impressions are that this was a bigger improvement than the original bronze bushing swap. Shifts feel as precise and crisp as I imagine they can with an m47. Worthwhile mod for sure.
