Final Tune

Hello everyone. It's been some time but I still lerk on the forum and just wanted to give some update to my 930 after Jacob and I completed the motor rebuild almost 2 years ago. I decided to visit and work with Pete at Dawes motor sport in Strausberg Pa to tune and do the break in on the freshly rebuilt motor. I am hoping to join and connect with my fellow turbo friends at this up coming Palooza event. We finished the leak down all numbers are good plus no heavy metal in the oil filter is also a good sign. The motec unit is getting moved from engine compartment to underneath drivers seat then off to the dyno. I will keep you all posted.

They are B and B. Exhaust. I sent them back to factory for a recondition even better Chris at Turbo Kraft makes a support bracket for the Gr 35 turbo that attaches to the motor rather than allowing turbo to bear all it's weight on the headers
