Nice thread, love the graphs and descriptions of mods and gains.
Also love the wrap job. I actually did an upipe a few years back with many layers of folded aluminum foil, went that route after regular heat wrap fell apart. I put that foil on with the uppipe about 2 years back, and you know, I went rotated a month or so ago, and when I pulled the turbo and upipe off, the foil was still in excellent shape, dirty yes, but still sound as when I did it. By the way, you say your looking for a turbo, the one I removed from my car was a Blouch dom 2.5r with about 2000 miles on it. PM me if you might be interested!
