right. I wouldn’t even consider doing a bigger turbo with the stock DP. What do ya use on the cold side? LR j boot?? Is this a wet or dry turbo?

I wonder if Evergreen could do some work on that super 61? New comp wheel? Hmm. I might ask him. Is your 61 wet or dry?

Both of the turbos are wet. Both setup to run 3" J pipe or maf tube. The k26 based unit is 100% bolt on, the super 61 you need to modify the water pipe that wraps over the top of the compressor. Id be happy to sell the 61, but I really think you'd be happier with something more modern from tim's shop.
