Hey guys.
Just thought that i would let you all know that i have just installed my second Gturbo as my first one failed after a very short life span.
Graeme was a pleasure to deal with and really does stand behind his product.
Ill keep you all posted as to how this one goes.
But from seat a seat of the pants feeling this one is performing much better than the last.
So far i would recommend as long as your not in a rush as he is quite busy.

Hey sydo.
Not sure what Graeme found on strip down but to me having a quick look without striping it down seemed to have bent the compressor wheel shaft.

As for mods i now have a stage 3 Gturbo, uni Chip with the add on unit to drive injectors, cross country cooler and have also had the ecm flashed.
Catch can, egr block and of course 3 inch exhaust.

Made 190 hp @ rear wheels.
That was on the old turbo that i feel never really preformed as it should have. Im interested in running it on the dyno again as it feels as it goes better now.

My first stage one cost me $2700.
Then after it failed i made the choice to uograde to the stage 3 and that cost me another 900. Not sure what it would cost to do straight up. Give him a call.

Did you see the millweld airbox with the adapter to suit the maf sensor thread looks like the way to go

Haven't had it stripped down as of yet. But its really started howling, as though it has become unbalanced, and sounds like the compressor wheel is contacting the housing.
No parts to build new one for 3 months so I'd guess no parts to repair for that long as well.

I am aware they have a habbit of burning the tips off the turbine.
Also he did say he had a bit of trouble balancing this one up
