    nothing wrong with just oil. you just need to get a turbo timer.
    oil and oil/water are pretty much the same when the engine is running. the only difference is that with just oil, you need to let the car idle for a min or so and the water cooled one, you can just shut it off without worrying about coking the bearing
    he told me that he want $800 + stock turbo for td06 20g

    Can you PM me his info? let him know "anson" will be calling. If you're sure about that oil vs oil/water, then it sounds good. I'll be asking for your help with the install.

    As for the water lines, does that just get capped off under the hood? I have yet ot take off the turbo, so i'm assuming my current setup has an oil feed & water feed.

    i did a little reading and most of the new turbo cars are running water/oil cooled turbos as an added insurance against coking the bearings since most people become too lazy in letting the car cool down properly before shutting off. there is a big debate on the whole subject but thats the conclusion i came to after reading all the arguments.

    I let it sit for bit now before shutting off the motor. but with all the stuff in the wagon, i'm getting a proper alarm w/ turbo timer anyway soon after the install.

    all hail to Chris. I have money for it RIGHT NOW and i'll drive to San Diego to get it.

    Nope, i've got H&S Scoobysport Catless Downpipe 2.5" and Stromung 2.5" cat back.

    I stuck with the 2.5" piping because of noise issues (the acoustics in the wagon are MUCH worse than the sedans). Try driving around without the rear seats, you'll know what I mean if you have 3" exhaust

    I would say that is average not a really good price. I paid $1325 for mine w/ that one ding, off of a show car (Verdugo's old ones). I would aim for 1600 - 1800 if it is just for the rims. 2k isn't that bad if it comes w/ the tires. Or are they new?

    EDIT: Blah I read your post all the way through now. I would say go for it but try and haggle a little at least another $100 off.
    Hey guys, I'm back!!!
