Pixs tell a thousand words. These are the first two in Malaysia from what I know. One for me and one for a Bro.
This is what my Bro Jacko whom helped to pick up the snail has to say bout the EFR - "LOL... you guys better chia me good dinner. I had to lug both your turbo to my unit. Luckily they were very light as compared to other turbos
Firstly good news. The water and oil ports are all M14 x 1.5 as described on the installation guidelines. You also do not need an oil restrictor as its already build in (SMART!). Turbo is top notch, even my turbo guy that sees turbo day in and day out commented that its very beautiful and will flow better than any GT28 variant. The compressor housing is bigger than the stock evo7-8 and maybe same size as the evo9. That explains the 400hp potential. The compressor wheel is a billet item and will last longer than the car if nothing touches it at 100,000rpms. Other good things I see is that the shaft is thick, casting is top quality and turbo spins very well!! The compressor housing can also be rotated 360deg as its being held by Vband clamps and the actuator can move with it. Very impressive. You guys made a great choice. To the untrained eye this may look like a small turbo.. but look closer and it will smoke the rest... The quality is very good better than Garret and any OEM turbo of course.
Bad news is that you have to get the 3" Vband clamps for the turbo as my turbo friend does not have them in stock now. But plenty in Ebay. Other than that you guys are pretty much set and ....... oh and also the expensive dinner with me :P"
Looks like many sleepless nights ahead for me. Sweet turbo dreams...
