Thanks for the breakdown. Much appreciated.Short answer; Allows the turbo to more efficiently move gases away from the turbine which creates more power and increase the boost much more efficiently.
The biggest increase for the dollars spent will come from an ECU tune, downpipe and FMIC. To make the most power from your stock turbo, a downpipe is one of the most critical pieces.
I certainly hope he did just for his sake lol. He’s the only mechanic I trust working on the car. And he damn well knows I’ll be back to him if I decide to go cat less in the future.Yep, they studs are a bugger to get out. You've got to double nut them and soak the crap out of them with penetrating oil. They don't utilize stainless hardware and they tend to seize up. Did he by chance utilize any anti seize when reinstalling them? Makes a big difference if it has to be removed later on.
Looks good Chris!!
