While I was away on a three week road trip to New England a package arrived and it contains the Tomei ARMS turbo upgrade I have been impatiently waiting for since I ordered it in mid-May.
The folks at Kami Speed have been very understanding of my frustration and kept me informed as to the status whether it was good news or not. Apparently the Tomei turbo has been more of a success than expected and production has barely been able to keep up with demand.
Fortunately Tomei insists on maintaining quality no matter what and that translates into my long wait.
Here are some photos of the turbo along with a really nice O2 sensor housing that will be added to the Tomei kit. This housing is from a company called Exotic Speed that produces this beauty out of stainless steel. On my Evo 8 I had used a nicely welded up stainless steel version from eBay that I really liked and was looking for another one for this car when I came across the Canadian company that was selling these.
Next I have to set aside a weekend to install the new turbo, the Mishimoto radiator, and what ever else has stacked up on the bench.
There will be more on that weekend and photos of course.
