    genuine BW hotsides have inserts for the turbo to manifold bolts. Chinese housings dont.

    Depending on the Frame turbo you go for, and power goals..... small internal wastegates compromise the hotsides flow a lot, and >400bhp on garretts (and some others, except new EFR's) the wastegates are just too small to vent sufficient flow for good boost control.

    surgio or not (an issue you had that I barely saw on wellys) , its the better model imho

    Mapped accordingly we will see... ride that surge line is worth it vs clipped and other varients to me

    Already sorted out, cheers Bill :)

    I will be running the 550's for my build. Did they originally come from Welly boots too?

    Nice one now, as soon as I've finished typing this post, I shall reply to Dane saying I'll take them for sure :)

    Now all I need is Welly prop shaft and rear diff, after he's sold it Dane, and my car will be a complete parts whore!

    For your reference, a CR V1 with 3k miles on it, not smoking but a LOT of play, no in and out, just side 2 side, visible score marks on the inlet compressor housing from where it made contact, rebuild time. :-(

    thats excessive indeed.
    surging and v.high boost not helping it much.

    LOL, my clutch won't last a track day, wishful thinking.

    I know, were all scumbag boy racers over there :)

    True, uprated thrust bearing me hole, never boosted it past a 1.7bar peak.I think it was iffy from day one, remember the cavitation post i had up, where the turbo would squeal like a pig coming on boost.

    It looks like it.

    And a ported/unclipped one that is ok too,(Andrews old one) so it looks like its the "cr turbo lottery"
