How about this one? and....we do have the 26mph gauge in stock if you need a little more than the 25.

I finally got the bung tig'd on the pan... I need to get a 45* oil drain fitting. Button everything up and figure out something for exhaust. I can't drive it without at least some kind of downtube off the exhaust housing. I'll do a whole new exhaust but I need to be able to get it there somehow. I need a 90* bend right off the exhaust housing with about only 4" of room to do that so it's gotta be tight.

Wes,
Let me know when you want to haul it and I'll come up with the flatbed and lunch money!

wes - do you have the ability to regulate that vacuum pop-off/wastegate? best thing I ever did was put on a variable boost control valve on my porsche.. run around all day at 3psi boost in town, and slam that baby up to 21 for the twisties...

The waste gate is 7 psi IIRC. I thought about getting a manual boost controller so I could regulate up to 10 but realistically i'll probably be fine and I don't see boosting much past that. I want to drive it and see where i'm at before I jump.


I was probably going to go with A&A. I've heard good things and they are just down broadway which is easy to get to. Thanks UB and Tree, I might have to take one of you up on it.
