Sent off the blown e316g from 100/2000 (my son's GVR4) and sent it to Chris Robbins of Turbos-r-us for an upgrade.

9-blade Turbine
7-blade 20g Compressor
Machined compressor housing
new ported 7cm Exhaust Housing

End result will be the 20g in the 16g housing. I nice flowing and sneaky turbo for $200 less than a 68hta (which is what I was considering).

Looking forward to getting this installed once it comes back

Had a spare e316g that pushed oil, so I sent it off to Chris Robbins @ Turbos-r-us and had him work his witchcraft. I considered the 68HTA, but this is a little bigger, billet wheeled and still in the original housing. All the gasket surfaces have been machined, compressor housing has a slight polish and the new 8cm turbine housing is heat coated. Plus it came in @ over $100 less than the HTA. Can't wait to get her installed.

Looks awesome. They upgrade the thrust or is it the stock style?

Quoting thomcasey:

Finally got around to putting the front passenger door replacement on. Unfortunately, I had to do some modifications at the mount points (top body hinge mount and both door hinge mounts) with washers to get the rear door pushed far enough back to allow it to be opened with the front door closed and to align them. I have never seen so much difference between doors from the same year and model of car. But the work was worth it. Now the doors shut like a vault and the gaps are much cleaner than before. Now I just need the rest of the windows tinted, plus some paint and body work on the right rear QP, roof and hood.

Looks like your frame is bent. Door dose not line up. You should take it to a body shop or find a better donor car...

1025/2000 is officially back on the road with all of the drivetrain from 100/2000. Now the disassembly of 148/1000 starts to ready for a little frame straightening and welding.
