    Why go for an 800hp capable turbo? Surely you want one more suitably matched for its purpose!

    That's 800hp capable using a 1.01 AR exhaust housing. garrett claim it will flow enough from 400-800. obviously i won't be running 800. with a low AR and the fact it's ball bearing it will spool up nicely too! the GT35 seems to be the weapon of choice for almost every decent power VRT i can find

    sorry 450-850hp. this is the one, it's coming with a .61 AR turbine housing but i think i'm going to need to get a .83

    ok started stripping it down so i can adapt the manifold and downpipe to fit the V band exhaust housing. whilst i'm at it i'm going to swap the head gasket as it seems to seep out oil around the edge. haven't got the head right off yet but check this out, do you think this oil is coming from the stems or from the cylinders?

    you can see how saturated in oil the manifold is. i had new stems and seals fitted just before i last rebuilt it... didn't smoke like this before then

    also, i can't remember which side doesn't have a rubber seal, is it intake or exhaust?

    why would exhaust have a rubber seal? I mean, it's gonna be hot.

    I meant the exhaust valves, IIRC don't some engines only have stem seals on the inlet valves? Or am I mistaken?

    Cool, thought that would be the case, I had the head skimmed and "refurbished" no more than 500 miles back and it's leaked ever since I put it back together. I put it down to the crappy turbo!!!

    maybe they used the wrong seals, or cheaper ones. But it seems from the images quite conclusive where oil is emerging from.

    They have to have some form of seal, either the old umbrella type, or the positive style ones like found on what not intake there valves right.
