I think the cover would suit an indoor storage location really well. I left my car for about 2 years in Maryland/VA while I lived in Seattle. The first year or so, it sat in my garage uncovered...

Barry, I found a new Garrett (not chinese knock off) housing so I got that and now I'm just rounding up the parts to make it work with my exhaust. Believe me, it was not easy to find this housing.

Suggestions on where to buy exhaust flanges

I need to find a decent (but also not overpriced) flange for my exhaust system. 2 bolt, 3 inch pipe size, 1/2 inch thick would be best. Mild steel. Not sure on the bolt spacing - need to go...

Need turbo help in DC

I need a new turbine housing set up for my RX-7. Old one broke and I don't think it's fixable.

Anyone know of a reasonably priced shop near DC that can either weld a flange onto a housing (if I...

Probably ~15k miles over a roughly 10 year period (yes, I don't drive the car much!). I had a turbo blanket type thing installed. It's sort of a hard one (does that make sense?). Made out of...

Is this turbine housing damage fixable?
