I'm not now.

Ordered new shafts, old ones are out already. Hopefully have it back together in a couple weeks.

Make sure you get that intermediate gear for the front...parts should have told you that anyways.

Also have fun with that rear plastic sleeve.

Why do I need to replace the intermediate gear?

Likewise details on the sleeve difficulty?

That gear meshes with the balance shaft and sets lash once worn in, if u dont replace it eventually one or both gears will fail.

Theres been a few revision of that sleeve, you need to make sure the notch is lined up correctly and inserted correctly, they break if not done right. i dunno which one u have so its hard to say.

Cars been back together for a few days now.

Replaced the shafts and timing. Likewise I've gotten sick of the 5858s powerband. Ordered a gtx3071r to replace it.

But the trend now is EFR, many people I know think or went to EFR instead of the GTX!

Maybe the gtx will be cheaper. The trade off with efr is mainly faster spool times for more usable powerband?

Efr turbos are the way to go if you can fit them. Their massively larger than comparable t3 turbos however, and space is already at a premium with tubular manifolds. I know I couldn't fit one with this setup. The gtx3071r is a drop in turbo with my tial vband setup, so it was a no brainer.

The only efr I'd want is a 7163 which is nearly a grand more, and once you figure in a new manifold and down pipe setup I'd be downright stupid to switch.

Lastly, I don't want a turbo that spools too quickly. Having had both a k04 and a gtx28 they both just spun. 4k-ish spool and 500whp potential out of the box makes this a turbo a winner.

Totally respect man, I prefer the GTX3071R or GTX3076R with A/R .60 more than .85

I have the GTX28 with VF manifold and it spools damn fast, full boost around 3600rpm and it's really nice; also I would definitely go for the same EFR you want, and there are two ready kit in the market now. I know friend of mine run GTX3076R with tubular manifold and vband DP too and he will switch to the EFR7163 with external wastegate and he almost figure out everything and just waiting to move.

A quick little update:

So the 5858 was using a Tial housing intended for a gt30. "Awesome", I think "I can just switch it over to the new turbo."
Unfortunately it turns out I needed a new CHRA to turbine housing clamp.

Which is Tial proprietary.

Which costs $120.

Damn.

So I bit the bullet and ordered one.

Here's the stupid expensive clamp in all its glory.



Turbo finally assembled.



Wrapped the manifold too. Hopefully i'll have it all back together sometime soon.
