i) this is a huge restriction on exhaust flow at higher rpms - leading to
poor turbo efficiency and excess heat build-up
ii) the 1/4" step at the turbo outlet to downpipe cannot help airflow any.
In all likelihood, this only creates more backpressure as the exhaust gases
stumble over this lip.
iii) while quick spool-up at low end gives better throttle response and
acceleration off the line, this turbo sucks rather than blows and trying to
achieve high rpm power is a waste of time (and exhaust gases)

Anyone close by want to swap a good K26 for my good (but wimpy) K24?



(reply directly - off list - if interested - local fast swaps only, I can't
afford much more down-time)
