thanks , pretty much everything on the car was done by Aaron, and i just kept it the same because i like the look as is, except the minor mods eg) clear corners etc... really want a new paintjob though

anyways, was waxing hard?? i've heard many stories when it comes to waxing, but i think i'm gonna give it a shot

oh btw, have you ever used the black magic liquid wax?

keep up the good work

Not all the parts are back yet so i dont know how much the final bill will be. Yes the turbo has to be pulled apart as just the compressor housing needs to be coated.

hm... what kind of turnaround did u get from the shop? ross was vague when i asked him, which leaves me a bit concerned because i have a core that i have to return within a certain timeframe or else i lose the core charge

Cool

The shop (technik) does the dissasembling/reassembling .. then they send the pieces out to get coated.. inside and outside both get done. aparently they prep the material then stick it in a machine and zap.. all done

is the inside of the turbo housing coated as well? i hope not... they were having a discussion about this in the forced induction section saying it would ruin the impeller because tolerances are so tight
