Chuck,

Thanks for thinking of me. Kevin is with Ultimate Motorwerks and Stephen is with Imagine Auto who sells Kevin's K27 line of turbos.

As for the turbo, I am still waiting for it. It has taken a little longer than expected but I know Kevin is very busy and per our conversation last week it should be in the mail soon.

I will absolutely keep you posted on the progress.

On another note, I was checking my intake the other day and I had to turn all 12 nuts at least 1 full turn (sometimes 2) to reach the specified 18 ft/lbs of torque that is recommended on the intake. This thing must have been leaking between the intake and phenolic blocks that hold the injectors. I guarantee that every time I went into boost the car leaned out pretty bad (I think...). Anyways, I think that may have been the main reason for the turbo failure if I had to point the finger at something. I am getting plenty of oil out of my oil feed line so it was not oil starvation.

I'll be in touch. And yes, we will meet at some point. I wont let off the throttle like Rod!!!!
