Having a hard time getting the right bracket for my 60-1 td06sl2, they're trying to get the right one but that would help a ton. Communication with authentic boosting has been very good, always a reply in a day or so.
I'll have some virtual dyno results for the 60-1 td06sl2 soon.
Thanks...
The bracket is the same as this one. I have flipped it around because it was put on backwards and was not seated perfectly. Now from the front the turbo looks like the one on this page (but it has a Kinugawa label). The bracket is a flat piece of unpolished aluminum. It has a triangle shape with the coutouts where the bolts can hold, so the position is adjutable (the cutouts are on the curved side of the flat triangle shape).

So far I have taken off the turbine housing and WG actuator. My snap ring pliers went missing, so I need to pick up another set to remove the compressor housing. The actuator is not as well designed as a Forge Motorsport (instead of a rubber ball with the actuator arm screwing into the ball, the WG arm has metal piston on the inside of the assembly and a rubber-like mebrane that seals and can stretch on top of the piston, clamped down with the screws). It seems functional as long as the membrane does not break. I will probably fit my Forge WG actuator onto the unit instead however. If that membrane breaks, the turbo will overboost. I did get an upgraded map sensor as well, so I can start using the boost cut in case it fails. Evything else looks and feels great.
