well if you wanna know what you dont think about at the time.
1.new header tank to plumb water cooler returb line from the turbo to. (and i wouldnt have paid f**k $350 for a pwr one as im currently getting a tig and am going to start making my own custom gear.)
2.braided lines, not hard to spend a fair bit on these.


what ya talking about with the water cooler line? do you have a water to air intercooler?

braided lines are cosmetic only, you dont need them, hi temp pushlock is only 25$ odd a metre, it will work for everything required, even oil feed line, although -3 speedflow will be around 100$ anyway its cheap for what it is, brass can add up tho, for all the fittings.

Just purchased one of the ebay Tig units, spoke to a few people that have tried them, the Tig only units seem to last, the combo units dont, someone down here uses the Tig only unit to weld up alloy heads, runs it at max amps always, and he's blown the fets a few times, but for 930$ delivered cant complain.


water cooled turbo.
