I keep blowing my lower elbow out.

Those elbows are available in multi ply. You shouldn't be blowing them out unless you have other issues. Actually failing or coming loose? How much are you boosting?

hi guys so i did a lot of readint through this thread.

i found this BV43 turbo stock brand new from germany.

im running a FMIC so the plumbing on the 43 is fine dont need the 43a outlet.

anyone run one of these, i dont need 240hp, so frans or xman turbos are a little pricy this is much cheaper?

thoughts?

it will be for a 6 speed RWD BHW project

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Turbolader-...QAAOSw9mpZ5iFW

also please dont buy it out from under me haha...


waiting for comments before buying.

thanks tim
