    Precision do the 6235 with the same T04B comp housing that am currently running

    Not sure how much that smaller comp housing will perform on a compressor that big and wether will be that detrimental to performance? Mine did have surge and had to be tapered in up until 5000 iirc where boost was then let loose

    Not currently planning on upgrading but it's certainly floating around in my mind, if I do though it will be substantial to a billet 35r (precision or HTA) of some description as not worth doing otherwise and the tial housings and Garrett core mean it will be a drop in solution regarding dp and lines only headache will be comp cover

    I expect to be pulling the engine and box next month once finished decorating 3rd room as not starting another till new year

    With regards to the meth in the fuel it's something would quite like to try but seems like it's not favoured and worth the grief

    Maybe should start a petition for E85 obviously for the benefit of being Eco friendly

    But e85 will be a whole lot more corrosive than a 10% methenol mix.
    I don't know about others but I for one will be using this 10% mix in the near future. I know someone that uses a 50:50 mix methanol and diesel(Yes I know not petrol) in their car for nearly the last 2 years and has had no problems with fuel lines etc. The car in question being a 1998 E class.

    Now just waiting on my B5 exhaust manifold as the Relentless is goosed.

    Olsten Helland has run e85 for a long time on his gt30 lcr. Stunning power. No reported fuel related issues.

    I think I'll try and use E85. Just hope one Bosch 044 + 1150cc (potentially at 4 bar) would be enough flow wise. I'd guess so? Seems to be you need 1.5x the flow of regular fuel.

    I have both the compact and full size housing for my GTX30. Hoping I can use the full size one. Looks so much more manly
