Default Mail man brought me some goodies today

I got me some toys today




Ordered these just the other day from Enjuku Racing for my SC300. Going to probably install these on my stock n/a motor until I finish compiling all the parts for my 1JZ/R154 swap so that I can at least drive the car if I need it. Maybe can even break them in on a weak motor that won't have a big turbo hanging off of it so there won't be any temptation to break it in on boost. It's a billet steel flywheel for the 1JZ and a Stage 3 clutch/pressure plate, 520 ft lbs I think it the rating.

These came in way quicker than the Spec clutch/pressure plate I ordered for my 300ZXTT a few years ago. I know they normally build them to order but this must have been sitting on a shelf ready to go already.

By "mail man" I'm guessing you mean one of the parcel delivery services, being as today was a USPS holiday.

I only mention it because I kept checking the mail for an expected package before realizing it wasn't coming...

Today he brought me this:



It's a Precision big shaft 63mm turbo. Basic 4" inlet, 2.5" outlet, t4 flange. He said it has a .68 hot side but I don't know, being an older turbo it's hard to find information on it. It's supposed to be 3" v-band, even told him if it wasn't t4 and 3" v-band I wouldn't be able to use it since 3" is what all the downpipes I've come across are and he said it was 3", but upon receiving it in the mail and measuring, it's a damn 3.5" >: (

did you measure right, on the v-bands you measure the inside hole, not the outside part. so if the hole is 3" then its a 3" v-band even though the v-band part goes another .5"

I did read up on it some today after I posted this and heard from others what you are saying Ali. It's hard to get a good measurement with a tape measure on a small round hole, but laying a piece of paper flat across it and putting pencil marks where the inner part of the hole was then measuring that with a tape measure, it appears to be 3" inner diamater...unless some v-bands come in 2 9/10 inches lol

"We" being USPS? That must only be in bigger metro areas, because it hasn't started here.

Sorry to take the thread off topic.
