  12. Shift Light Indicators

    go the shift i. had one on my bike and i rocked. its progressive so you can prepare to change rather then the single stage lights. easier to get the shift spot on. as said above has couple of other functions too. good quality product.
  13. Buying used Garrett Turbo

    ^^^ correct. there will be some shaft play as it need oil through it. any excessive play is bad. >3mm
  14. Buying used Garrett Turbo

    check for shaft play check fins/blades for chips etc check inside housing for scoring check around exhaust housing for excessive oil. check for any cracks in housings. check if the wheels turn easily. check if the wastegate flap is loose. its pretty straight forward fitting turbo. search for install. use braided lines to make install easier. also you'l need to clock turbo so that oil drain is facing straight down. you'll need clockin adaptors, cut and reweld snouts or alter ic piping to ft s15 snouts. other then that take your time and you'll be sweet.
