I immediately smiled and said to myself "oh my god" I have seen the 35r in person via Nigel, and thought that was huge! But WOW!!!11one The 42r just miniaturizes your previous (now currently Sifu's) turbo! What is your final goal for your car? Also, are there (or will there) be any other modifications that you plan to do with your engine and/or driveline area? I saw the new HG and studs, but theres gotta be more, right? Or is it above top secret? 8)

Should be a blast when it's done :D

Incidentally, I was just reading a topic on MR2OC regarding exhaust manifold design:

HAHAHA!!!! Mr. Funny guy. :P


Well I'm in the process of making a mock-up for the new turbo, and have most of everything on order, to include a new Carbonetics twin plate clutch... Pics of my progress will follow sometime this week, if I get a chance... :)

You'll have to tell me how that feels when it's all said and done. I've been leaning towards a Carbonetics, also.

Got word back last night that Carbonetics doesn't make a twin plate clutch for our cars... :bs: I thought they did, and I was even quoted a price from one of my friends and even paid for the twin plate to be put on order, but then was told that it was a single plate they had quoted us, because they were misinformed (the supplier was misinformed that is). Pretty alternative lifesylish... :bangshead:


So now I'm looking into either getting an Exedy or a Clutch Masters twin plate. Any thoughts? I know Kris at KO is running the Clutchmasters ceramic twin plate in his MR2 and loves it...

You going to be doing any mods to the tranny, or just going to keep pushing and see what it'll take?
