    Update: the fine folks at precision are taking care of having a polished compressor sent my way in exchange for the bare one so that allowed me to take the turbine housing off so I can take it in for ceramic. Not a moment wasted IMG_7159.JPG IMG_7160.JPG

    Not too big, no. I would say “properly sized/ high quality” single. The gen 2 precision air cooled ball bearing turbos are incredibly efficient. This should have a similar transient response to the twin 57/58’s on the DSG car, with more punch up top. This is a 76/75 rated at 1300 hp

    I'm not going to lie, when I saw the car on the trailer and directly under that pic was a shopping cart pic, my mind thought you added the car to your shopping cart.

    But very cool build. Posting to follow along

    Actually they are Toyo RR compound tires. This car is going to be build to handle as well as hook in a straight line so they’ll work perfect.
