Another thing I noticed is my cruising boost. It use to be zero along the river with a slight down hill. Not I see about 2psi. That was about what my 5 speed ran at.
Very nice!

Not very happy with Turbo Lab right now, not very happy at all.
Decided to put the 62mm compressor upgrade on and ran into a problem right at the end. When I tighten the compressor housing down it binds the wheel. So it looks like everything I did today will have to be undid. Glad nothing broke during disassembly.

Considering I bought it 11 months ago, I don't think they will do anything to help. I have an Idea though, but I will need some shim stock. If I shim the housing until it stops binding, I will know how much to machine off the bearing face to set the wheel deeper into the back plate.

Thought I'd give you an update on Turbo Lab. They, Turbo Lab and the Ebay seller finally contacted me after I started posting bad reviews on BBB, Amazon, and fleabay. First thing the ebay guy did was tell me I had to use a bearing from an HX35 which he would be more than happy to sell me. I pointed out to him and Turbo Lab that their advertisement stated "direct fit" to the H1C. The ebay seller came back and said the bearing should have came with the turbo kit along with instructions. If I didn't get one, he would ship one right out. Notice he changed his statement from "I will sell you one" to "it should have come with it"? I didn't get the bearing or any instructions with the kit. I could only speculate that the bearing and instructions didn't make it into the repackaged for cheap USPS shipping. Theoretically, there should be one coming in the mail.

Hope this works out for you my friend, if not do you want I should go talk the the EBay seller? I just bought a cement shoe kit and I could send him to go sleep with the fishes.

Turbo Lab update. Got a complete turbo overhaul kit in the mail. It contained the shorter bearing/collar I'm supposed to need. Tomorrow is supposed to be a nice day, but I have to have the truck up and running for a Monday appointment. Can't take the chance of something going wrong.
