    Well the turbo only lasted me about a month. It was running great, but I had a little too much fun with it. And now I am looking for a replacement

    I was running 17psi, but it was spiked up to 21-22 when it happened. And it has been sitting for about two months since I haven't had much time to fix it

    anything over 14psi is dangerous territory! 20+ is a blast for a few blocks tho hahah

    Yes it was... which is why I didn't hesitate to buy it.

    Anyways, I was going to install it today, but I don't have the banjo bolts for the coolant tube for the turbo. They are a different size the the VJ-14. so I am in need of two
