Lookin good, buddy! I'll be in the same boat. I was hoping to get started on my junk this summer, but due to my unit's OPTEMPO and me constantly being on TDY away from here, it just never happened. Now that my unit is in the chute to deploy again, I've resolved myself to tackling it after I get back from the 'stan. Well....no. I take that back. After I get back, I'll be PCS'ing back to the States. So, it'll have to wait until then. FML. Oh well. I look forward to seeing your isht done! Rathering interested, as I have a CTS 3071r kit waiting to go on my motor (same turbo config, save for the v-band discharge). Do work! :beer:

I like the peak power of the 50, but spool up and respool suck on this thing. My setup's like an On/Off switch for the most part. A DBB CHRA for the 50 is more than what a new JB PTE Billet turbo would cost. A billet 3071R or maybe a billet 30R is prolly where I'll end up.

doing a gasket match port and polish for intake side, exhaust side will just be a clean up job. not planning to over bore or do pistons, not going to be putting the car to the track that much and not going to be running 30psi. daily driving at most likely 20psi and maybe bump it up to 25psi just to to have some fun with guys that think they have a cool car......lol. should have dyno numbers as soon as the weather in Vermont permits. head is off and im looking into getting it hot decked if there is anyone around my area that can do it......search has turned up nothing as of yet.
