GTP38, compressor upgrade......

Not trying to waste anyones time because this is pretty simple.

If someone happens to buy the Stock turbo compressor upgrade that i have seen on Fleabay. Comes with the 88mm compressor wheel and ported shroud housing. Keep in mind that you will absolutely have to MACHINE your stock compressor backing plate to fit the larger wheel exducer!!!!!!

Saw a turbo the other day, someone bought this upgrade and just slaped the wheel and housing on and called it good. As soon as that turbo started somewhat spining, the back of the compressor wheel was rubbing against the backplate. And by rubbing i mean tearing chunks out of both the wheel and back plate. AGAIN YOU HAVE TO GET THE BACK PLATE MACHINED!

Sorry if i wasted anyones time, just dont want to see this happen again.
