  1. The Turbo spec is 31 pounds front and rear for these tires... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. I replaced XDX 185/70’s. Really liked them until I drove my car with the Pirelli’s. The comparison might not be completely fair—my Michelin’s probably got a little hard after 6 years. I was slipping on mountain roads which never bothered me in the past. I had about 15,000 miles on them. Rears wore quite a bit. Evidently, I neglected the forgotten art of rotating my wheels... My Turbo has CDX’s on it. My tii tires were French manufacture. The Turbo tires from a new factory. My alignment guy said they are out of round, although they seem to drive fine. Perhaps because they were bound up in shipping tape for almost a year before I mounted them. Who knows... I bought the set of Pirelli’s from Longstone. Great service and best price. (They discount for four or five tires) Arrived in California in 10 days or so with no sales tax. Only gripe is that they were manufactured a year ago. I don’t suppose the have monthly production runs... Greg Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Joined the club. These tires are better than the Michelin’s I managed to wear out. Better grip, and reduced cornering effort. Slightly softer ride. Very quiet. . Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Hagerty event. I don’t know... My tii is backup.
  5. Talking to Carl. But car is still not ready. I was hoping for track day at Laguna Seca on the 25th. Hopes dimming...
  6. Better late than never...ordered!! Greg Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. I wouldn’t recommend 2002ad for maintenance. More of a source for parts and a dealer for 2002’s. They did assembly of my car, but brought in part time mechanics for more demanding portions of the work.
  8. Will do. He actually outsources the overhauls to the racing mechanic in Texas who made this happen. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Carl is installing my turbocharger rebuilt with these new castings as we speak. I’ll let you know!!
  10. Thats not the look of 45-year old castings...
  11. My Turbo has been on the rack in his shop since January. Most of that time waiting for new castings. They are not in hand, or I’d have my car by now. Supposedly soon. Carl is working with the fellow who is making new castings from original blueprints in Texas. Not aware of future marketing plans between the two of them for the housings but with a very small fleet of cars and the cost of creating new molds, it wouldn’t make any sense to limit availability.
  12. Is this the KKK turbocharger castings? Or something else? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
