I'm getting old. Apparently I can only read words that have 3 or more letters in them

Well, if your housings aren't cracked, it should be completely ok for them to do.

I wonder if they'd make one with a Xona center section with a BB

Now let's not get crazy. I'm trying to NOT spend a ton of cash LOL
I'll shoot then an email. I'd love to have that particular green.

In Cali so would it be better to send in the turbo to FP so they can balance/refresh any bearings etc, and then send it back to bolt up?

I get I can do it at home but if they can check all the clips etc and make sure all is well, how much would they charge?

obviously would not want the antisurge housing now and I might have to keep OEM injectors too

I think they reduce their charge to $275+shipping. Used to be $400 last year.

This turbo really needs antisurge cover. If you want to use without antisurge cover, consider changing your turbine wheel to 9 blade to reduce chances of surges. FP won't have that, so you need someone who can customize for you.

I run an antisurge housing with an FP intake. It looks fairly OEM ,especially with the air box on. So far ,so good.

Found it! 34psi (so shouldn't be a problem on pump gas and e85 if you're not going for kill mode). See Post 21: https://www.evolutionm.net/forums/ev...5-31psi-2.html
