One theory on the dialynx warping...

I have decided not to buy dialynx headers, the answers I got was very clear
their quality :-)

When my stock K26 finally gave up I was checking for replacements in the US,
luckiliy most suppliers didn't have any on stock for the moment. That lead
to a lot of calling around, when I called Turbo City they said that the
200tq -85 and the 5Ktq -85 uses different units, they could get the european
as a new unit but not as a rebuilt! (1800$!) Turbo City didn't now the
difference between them, but the KKK part no is 5326-970-6411 for the
european unit and 5326-970-6412 in the US. I got the turbo form a swedish
supplier who by the way, knew that the 6412 has a bit smaller turbine
housing to get boost a few hundred rpms earlier. Usually a smaller turbine
housing makes the headers and turbine hotter.

I know that that the headers warp in th UK as well, but it is very tempting
to save some cash getting the replacement turbo from the US.
