You gotta watch your jokes around here. Check out the LED gage thread for an example.

Les, I don't know what point you are trying to make unless it is that everyone should be scared of turbochargers.

What you and Ben did was a self admitted mistake that cost an engine. That could just as easily happened to a 930. A waste gate failure is a waste gate failure nomatter what brought it on.

The original poster is wanting advice on how to do it right, not don't do it or you'll blow your engine. Turbocharged SCs are common on this board so it is proven that you can do it right.

My suggestion would be to directly e-mail the folks who have successfully done this conversion. They will be more likely to open up to any pitfalls and helpful hints off-forum rather than open themselves to ridicule. I know many extremely knowledgeable folks who simply will not post due to the BS on these forums. It's a damn shame and hurts us all.
