Hi. Looking good.

What wheels are you running? I've been using some 6 spoke Metro GTA wheels which are 5.5J wide, but those seven spokes you have look wider. Where did you get them from?

Thanks,

Cliff

Itís an external waste gate. This should cure my boost creep issues as the standard waste gate on the turbo wasnít up to the job.
