      Gotta have 'em. Just too much swearing and scotch tape otherwise. :-)

        Someone asked where I got this turbo drain extender. From eBay, here.

                        Hey there, tried sending you a pm but i don't know if you received it or not. I'm having trouble locating a decent machinist in Austin.. where did you take your motor? Thanks!

                        Comment


                          Hey, got your message but totally forgot to reply LoL. Machinist was Curtis Price. Good guy, might be retired now. I PMd you his phone number.

                            Curtis just called me back. He's still in business so you're good to go.

                              And this, because my dyno tune is still not done. Cars in front of us.

                                Thanks a ton for the rec! I'm dropping everything off to him tomorrow.

                                Google is useless in this case. I tried calling "Precision Machining Company" which was the highest rated result for "automotive machine shop near me" only to find that they don't service automobiles.. and then maybe 10 more phone calls.. none of which made me comfortable. I figured I could trust someone you'd trust your motor with. :)

                                Anyway, build looks nasty, carry on
