Just don't get greedy.
this was my logic at the time of purchase. i knew full well the block couldnt handle the full potential, but until it blew up i figured it would be a superior setup to the typical VF. too bad it didint last long...

fast forward to now, where it is being rebuilt, and i will finally be able to utilize this turbo to its full potential on pump gas

Happy to hear you went with Andrewtech for the build! I can't say enough about what a great shop Andrewtech truly is! I'm sure you won't be disappointed.
ha thats why i made the 5 hr drive each way! there are VERY few people who i let touch my car, andrewtech being one of them. they built my transmission when it blew up on mach v's dyno, and have stood by their work. Great guys, great work, great customer service. I would have loved to build this myself, but i did not have the time or resources. I am both excited and honored to say i have an andrewtech built block and tranny!
