Holy crap! When mine was running I thought 2k miles was barely driving it for a year ….
I am right there with @DDLopes - I take mine out only to drive maybe on an early Sunday morning. Since joining this forum - Mar of '23, I maybe put 500 miles on her.

Hoping to be on the Dyno at the end of March!!! My GearHead Gen3R turbos will be for sale. They have approximately 700-800 miles on them. They are capable of holding 22psi over 6000 rpm’s. They were approximately $3300 new. I will have pics of them soon.

Just got the car back yesterday. The turbo installation took longer than expected due to an issue with one of the turbos. Once I got it back from TurboBay everything went smooth. This week I’ll be breaking them in and hopefully if the weather cooperates I’ll get it done this week. TurboBay recommends 200 miles needed to break them in. Brad is ready to start tuning the car so hopefully everything goes well and I can hit the Dyno next month. To make 600 plus whp in these cars will be impressive. But we’ll see …

How are you dealing with the Torque Management police? Are you just street driving?

I’m just street driving. Brad deals with the torque management in the tune which we are still working on. Don’t get me wrong. I will not be driving around with a 600 all wheel tune most likely I’ll stay around 500 to 530 for every day tune

I had an issue with the car. But 20 psi was around 65-70 wastegate. So these turbos should be close to 27-28 psi at 100% wastegate. I think
