    Well I managed to blow up the 16g. So time for a rebuild and turbo upgrades

    A tod6 housing with a three inch inlet and anti surge. Down firing
    A billet 6+6 extended tip compressor wheel.
    Still using the 080 fp hot side housing.
    And a diffrent waste gate actuator.[DOUBLEPOST=1410302011][/DOUBLEPOST]Before the turbo went South.

    So after blowing up the 16g I decided a rebuild was in order with some up grades and mods were in order. 10649616_601275519983023_4703827364783630351_n.jpg

    20170911_145244.jpg St 3g rear sway bar, some megan rear arms, evo white line endlinks. Im mounting the endlinks to the knukles. The reason im using the 3g bar , its a little stiffer and i am making a custom rear exhuast. To route the exhuast the way I need I will have to have 4 inches or more of wiggle room between the sway bar and rear diff. Also with all this mock up it will allow me to change the jig setup for the sway bar location.

    Exhuast routing, this is rough fit , being held up with bungi cords. I also plan on making a rear diffusor that will hopfully draft air out of the rear wheel arches. Also not the rear talon conversion. 13962894_1095356257214790_3185103837143031588_o.jpg
