    Small early update

    Ok, so I am getting a lot of people saying we are not making any progress so I just want to post a quick update before I do the full one next week. This is a fully balanced, torqued to spec, and assembled stage 2 cut out CHRA will all of the upgraded parts in it except the step gap rings. This includes the fullback turbine, upgraded thrust parts, custom journal bearings etc. If you know anything about turbochargers or just high precision, high speed components you know this is a MAJOR step. Machining housings to accept the CHRA and wheels is just that machining. Getting a CHRA together with my sample parts to double check all tolerances, measurements, etc and everything being as you hoped is a big step. From here its wait for the parts to come in and assemble. As always I appreciate the support.Attachment 22154Attachment 22155

    Props for slicing that turbo open. As a mechanical engineer I love this kind of stuff.

    Hey Allen, sorry for the delay trying to stay off the forums for the remainder of the weekend. I need a break. I was also going to go to Shift Sector today but again I think I needed a break, so I chose not to. No problem on giving you the specs. I can tell you the AR's are staying the same as stock because we are utilizing the stock housings machined to take the bigger wheels. The compressor wheels are 14T for stage 1 and 15T for stage 2. 14T is 39.55mm inducer x 51mm exducer, 15T is 42mm inducer x 56mm exducer. Let me know if you have any other questions.
